Album Review

Reviewed 2007-10-12
Crushing, ultra-heavy metal from Oakland. You might know that this band features Matt Pike (Asbestos Death, Sleep) on Lemmy-ish vocals and axe, Jeff Matz (Zeke) on bass and Des Kensel on drums. If you wanna what metal sounds like in 2007 – start here. 4 albums in and they just keep getting more intense.

(((((1)))))) Incredible “soon to be classic” intro moves to an amazing build up then fast & rockin’ sound.
((((2)))) Strummy intro, serious heavy riff, dense low end & deep vox
(((((3)))) Bassy, thunderous, doomy & has a catchy chorus
(((((4)))))) Strummy, loose psych interlude with a Middle Eastern sound. Far out!
((((((5))))) Massive barrage into a perfectly structured mix of riffs & vox. “Waaaaooooo!”
(((((6))))) Drum solo! And damn this is good! Never mind the “YYZ”.
(((((7))))) Riff, riff, crush, crush, repeat. Oüh!
((((((8))))) Huuuuuge riffs. If Godzilla walked the earth – this would follow in it’s footsteps
((((9)))) Acoustic intro then a few gargantuan riffs. Awesome!
(((((10))))) Epic & metal and metal & epic
(((((((11)))))) Holy crap! Another huge sounding song with muscular riffs and an epic vibe. The travel from point A to point B really pays off.
