was originally a side project for guitarist Sacha Dunable (Anubis Rising)
and drummer Danny Walker (Exhumed, Uphill Battle). Guitarist Leon del Muerte
(Exhumed, Impaled) joined the band shortly after the formation. And Joe
Lester’s musical experience fit in perfectly for this band on bass.
They have a unique blend of metallic and other traits, and they range over
quite a spectrum. Even acoustic parts seem fresh sounding. My first impression
was if Opeth or Cynic was a hardcore band, this is what they would sound
like. Which isn’t to bad of a claim. Jazz influenced metallic hardcore
would be a pretty good explanation. But their extreme sounds can be somewhat
like Goatwhore, Neurosis, or Mastodon but with many layers of music. Five
tracks, only however four tunes, each lasting at least six minutes. The
whole disc is over twenty-eight minutes. It’s quite a journey; I think
people that are into the more experimental side of heavy music would enjoy
all aspects of this CD. I’m finding myself enjoying this more and
more every time I listen to it.
