I don't understand how such thing happened...for a so inspired label, when choosing bands, to actually deal with these Swedes! It may be because the band's leader is no one else but Tomas Lindberg, a respected representative of deceased AT THE GATES. Or perhaps because of some other sonorous names related to bands such as DIABOLIQUE, LIERS IN WAIT or GROTESQUE... Well, These Swedes' music doesn't outrun the standard level of confusion and the muddle of Metal with Hard-Core or Industrial tunes has nothing new or interesting to bring for my delicate ears. Perhaps there is about some Thrash reminiscences or a few echoes of AT THE GATES times...is it only my self-induced suggestion? I don't know, but I don't think I could find something special here and neither for the Metal scene this will mark! It is just a mediocre attempt to prove that aggressive Metal can be kept alive throughout Core experiments! Unfortunately, this is artificial... Disgusting!
