I've been listening to this one off and on ever since I got the promo last year and after all this time it still sounds fresh and kicks ass. Wraith play speedy blackened thrash with an old-school punky black 'n' roll vibe. The harsh vocals are mostly decipherable and a little whispery and just flow along with the music, not taking the attention away yet you'll still find yourself singing along. You don't get room to breathe on this one, it's speed all the way, the band going all guns blazing and not letting up. What I like the most is how catchy most of the songs are (especially "Born to Die," which is pretty much imprinted in my brain at this point). Good luck trying to stay still and not sing along and break out the air instruments while listening to this. A load of catchy, evil fun.
