The Messenger starts things off with a clean guitar intro, producing some sense of anticipation, the bass comes in next with a thumping line, the distortion can be heard in the background, and the listener knows things are about to kick off. When they do kick off, it comes with a thunderous riff, and a pounding melody, a perfect start. Wrath Of Steel is thunderous as well, producing some interesting melodies and riffs, and slaying all around.
The Curse Of The Dead Star moves slowly, jagged riffs and thundering bass grooves littered throughout, adding a sense of destruction and chaos to all that unfolds. The speed and shredding capabilities of the band are fully explored as the song veers from side to side. Fly High, cover of the legendary Brocas Helm song is an exercise in melody and groove and sheer insanity.
The album is out on 21st September via Gates of Hell Records.
