For those who like their metal/hardcore laced with old style trash aggression and a “singer” who screams throat-tearing songs of anguish, will be delighted with this debut from a Southern Californian band previously heard on the ‘Strength To Prevail’ sampler. Lyrical themes are bleak, an immoral woman’s hold on a weak man (“Candice”), the filth and perversion of lying lips (“Vile”) and death and eternity (“When Breath Escapes”). A massive wall of forcefully performed, technically precise, brutal metal with a sound which, as the press release so eloquently says, is “heavy enough to break every bone in your body.” You have been warned.
