Saw these guys play last month and I've been listening to their debut album ever since . Great grinding war metal, with actual riffs and some truly propulsive drum work. Production is perfect for this style too... gritty, but with great clarity for each instrument. Gotta love the Putrid artwork, too.

Anyone else like this album ? Anyone who's into this style should pick it up if you haven't heard it yet. It's not reinventing the wheel by any stretch of the imagination, but it's got that 'it' factor to differentiate itself from similar acts. Very much looking forward to their future output.

Yes, a good album but not many ppl seem to be aware of it, so thanks for bringing it up. Will have more copies of this CD in stock within the next weeks, btw.

Yeah, it seems like it'd be right up a lot people's alley on this board. The small label (Strong Survive) probably has a lot to do with people not being aware of it. I know I certainly wasn't until I saw them live, then I walked over and bought the cd immediately from their table. I wonder if a vinyl release is planned by any labels ?

here's the killer title track for people to check out

Great band and crazy live.

The singer cuts himself on stage while giving the audience a really murderous look. I still have some live pics of them.

Them and Pantheon are two great bands on Strong Survive.

Strong Survive actually did a repress of that album, it was originally released on a very tiny label. There were talks of SSP doing the vinyl...

Fucking awesome album. I thought their sound was a little too loud and muddy live, but they were definitely intense.

Was at the Chicago show, and took some pictures, Which i was finally able to retrieve from my camera after I thought I lost them due to some disk error.

They were probably the heaviest, most punishing live act I've ever seen. Literally a whirlwind on stage.

Great band live and on CD! I have copies of this album in stock but i believe it to be that CDR version that was floating around for "promotional purposes"? I traded pro-cd's against them. Great...
