#FOR FANS OF: Black/Thrash
This release is really awesome! It’s actually the first one I’ve heard from them. It was recommended from a friend and it might be one of their best releases to date. It’s like black/thrash which are two different genres meshed into one. The vocals are really good and they play the music really well. I really enjoyed the guitar riffs. In the production was top-notch. I like the chorus “kill kill kill...kill for the metal.” That’s a classic. These guys put out some pretty cool black/thrash metal. Some fast and slow tempos. But overall pretty original riffs. These guys are Chicago based. They haven’t put out material in a while but at least they’re still together. Some of the members are in a band called Bones. They’re rather different. But still good. They put on a good live show.

This is a catchy album. The riffs are pretty different, but still good. The whole way through it’s good. The yelling and rhythms take their form. I like the actual groove to the songs. Not really familiar with the genres put together. So in that respect, I suppose you can say it’s pretty unique. I wish I would’ve known about this band a long time ago. I like the production quality I believe it’s top-notch as well as I say. Just a lot of songs on here that an are really noteworthy.

All in all definitely well thought out release for a metal band from Chicago. I’m looking forward to hearing more of their music. For now., I’ll keep it at this one. Hopefully they’ll come out with some more new music but I’m sure it’s going to be a probably a different lineup. That’s all right though. They seem to be a growing band.

Glad I got to this CD but not how much it cost! I encourage you to check out this album either on Spotify or YouTube. You might decide on making a purchase for it. Everything about this album rules! The music, the sound, and the overall effort. Don’t wait up on this. Check it out soon if not now! (Death8699)
