The satanic underground of Texas brings forth yet another great band. If you like the NYDM sound- then this will be quite a treat. If you like your death metal to chug along with a doomy grimy feel - you'll soon be a fan. Yeah some parts will remind you of Incantation, Immolation, Bolt Thrower blah blah blah- but all these influences is more the reason to give it a listen. Death Metal was never meant to be progressive or innovative- just fucking brutal.
Trust me- this delivers.
