Formed in august 2008 and with clear intention of making quality music that will last and more importantly get them noticed.

I guess the first thing you really notice is the mature and quite superb vocals, they are melodic and soulfull, pure class.

'Hurricane' has a nice intro that leads into some melodic thrash with great riffs and very solid drums.The next song is way too melodic, its a good song but bordering on a ballad it drops the initial kick of the first song.

'Shell' is an acoustic ballad, however this fits better, reminds me of Stone Sour's 'Bother'.
Ahh but the metal returns with 'Blood From A Stone' though the riff got motley crue's Dr Feelgood running through my head!!It has a great solo towards the end as well.
The final song has another great intro then kicks in, a very melodic vocal almost seems at odds with the heavyness of the music, but it all works.

Overall a very good ep, personally would have dropped 'Fated Consequences', now get this band into the studio and record an album, especially when you take into account the quality of this recording that was done in the drummers bedroom!

Rating 8/10
