Rated 3.4/5 (68%) (5 Votes)

This is an Irish band who have aimed for a 90s-era USDM sound and pretty much nailed it. This is strongly reminiscent of classic era Morbid Angel or Obituary—the speed and riffage are pure Altars of Madness worship, and the leads and vocals are going for that Cause of Death vibe. There's nothing even remotely original about this, and I wish the guitar sound was a little heavier and dirtier, but if retro-sounding Florida Death Metal is what you are in the mood for, then this will hit the spot.
