Now it's not going to be for everyone, a lot about this band is not exactly the most original stuff in the world. HOWEVER, this 5 piece that includes Ex-Members of Oblige and Impending Doom seem far more focused and creating some riffs that groove out the ass, than being the fasted or shreddiest thing this side of Tech-Death.

Their debut is released next month, but a few songs have already been released, and even I, as a self proclaimed hater of pointless chuggy metalcore bands, think this stuff is pretty damn good.

At least I'm happy in the knowledge that The Devastated are higher on the bill than this garbage _

I'd probably be into this band if they didn't have one groove per song that ends up being repeated for four minutes. They're pretty heavy live, but that's about all they've got going for them.

Drums sound terrible.

Also, what's wrong with Impending Doom? I thought they were just another run of the mill deathcore band.
