New uk hardcore act formed at the beginning of August 2008 by vocalist Kez (Ex - Trenchhead) and drummer Pygmy, then joined by guitarists Jack (Dreaming In Oceans/Ex From the Carnival of Horrors), and Alec, and bassist Luke (Ex Carnivale/Matron).
Okay so hardcore aint my thing and after the first couple of songs i was getting a bit bored, its all shouting and and agression, a shame because i tell you that the lyrics are awesome, very well written and intelligent, you just cant hear them though.
BUT, oh yes there is a "But" when we hit track 4 melody kicks in and there is a little more stucture in the song, sure its still shouting and agression but it has enough breakdowns to make it listenable, Same is true of the next two tracks as well.
What really makes this stand out though is as previously mentioned the quality of the lyrics, "God machines advancing, archaic cathedrals of unbridled hate laying our cities to waste" (Colossus).
So all in all i have to reccomend this album!
Rating 5/10 (Music)
