“If you’re in the mood for ravenous, high-speed death metal with a strong old-school flavor and enough groove to crack ribs (plus a couple of electrifying guitar solos), you’ll dig this mightily. It’s a megawatt charge delivered straight to the brain stem”.-NO CLEAN SINGING
“…they smother their music with face melting original riffs and decapitating blast beats. Leaving you hopelessly lost in the throes of uncontrollable bouts of head-banging”. –Heavy Metal Panic.
