The band led by T.J. Berry has been marching to the beat of its own drum for 18 years now, and on the 5th full-length album doesn't stray from its trademark style of US power/thrash metal, which can appeal to fans of TESTAMENT, JUDAS PRIEST, WRATHCHILD AMERICA, old METALLICA, METAL CHURCH, HEATHEN, ICED EARTH and JAG PANZER. New songs are usually short and to the point, catchy and with many mood changes... An atmospheric acoustic part is just a calm before the storm and before you know, you're grinded by pulverising riffs and grooves. The strong and expressive vocals shine here but also the instruments are in the hands of seasoned and talented musicians. It's quite a raw sounding, but very personal album with lots of passion emanating from the songs.
• 5th full-length album of this US power/thrash band.
