Greek band formed in May 2011, they have released a self-financed E.P. "Monarch To The Kingdom Of The Dead" in 2012. Many live shows and several releases follow in 2013 and 2014, a split with legendary Nocturnal Vomit, named "No Life In The Coffin", a split with Czech veterans Morbider named "From The Abyss Raised The Morbid...", a split with crust/punkers Slaktgrav named "Obscure" and of course the tape '"Summon The Dead" which is now issued as a download via their bandcamp page.
First 3 tracks are more old school thrash with a hint of death, gruff vocals carry the songs over the pounding riffs and drums.
'Remnants Of War' starts with a slow, brooding and evil sund then moves up a gear and then back to the slow pounding thrash again.
Last track is a cover of the Sodom classic, and is as fast and agressive as the original, a good solid cover.
Yep so didn't say much, dont always need t, this does excatly what you want from the genre and it does it very well.
