This band is one of the forerunners of what became brutal deathmetal.
John McEntee and crew perfected the doom-to-blast atmospheric mood, alternating slow segments with ‘breakneck pace’ grindcore blastbeat licks.
In eight songs, there’s lots of frantic trem picking, but zero flash – just a dark intensity.
Vocals are quite low pitched and incomprehensible, being used more as a texture or effect.
This record is far superior to any of the Johnny-Come-Lately beginner bands half-assing their way through what should be enjoyably disturbing music.
