Ugh I rated this way too low on my first listen


You ever just go back to a record from years ago and say: "just like I remember!"

Very samey but nothing offensive. One of the few albums I can bang my head to. Gotta feel bad for all these groups who were touted as "the next Nirvana" from major record companies only to be spit out once they made their dough.


This album is getting a brick slammed into your face.

Riffy, groovy, pummeling, relentless. The solos are blaringly noisey, the bass is rumbly as fuck... and THOSE DRUMS.

My only complaint is the album ends in an anti-climactic way making it feel incomplete. Even still this is a fun and brutal listen, and should be in any metalhead's collection.
