I'm pretty sure I downloaded this promo just because I liked the name of the band. This is death metal on the brutal side, but not the cacophonous style often associated with the subgenre. It does check some of the boxes; it's fast, heavy, sometimes completely insane and with barely (if at all) decipherable vocals. I can't say I'm hearing anything here I haven't heard many times before, so if you're looking for innovation, this is not it. It's a big wall of sound that doesn't leave much individuality for the songs and nothing really sticks out even after several listens, but I still found myself picking it out of my batch more often than not, as it's pretty damn cool and brutal while it's on. There are days where that's all you need.
