Total destruction from these PDX killers. These recordings are not available anywhere else, at least not these versions. Extremely evil/dark blasts of hate and disgust. If you get the chance to see them do not miss it!
Absolutely crucial MetalCrust from these ladies and gent. Fenriz (Darkthrone) picked this album for his top ten of 2010 so I will let him tell you why: "Former BAND OF THE WEEK because of an astonishing demo, these Portland maniacs head onwards with their VERY organic sound, reminding the listener of BURZUM/DARKTHRONE gone crust at first. Then later all the details reveal themselves, and you find more and more substance. Songs like SINKING FURTHER and VICTIMIZED are already classics in my book and give me goosebumps every time I hear them.
So many try to copy Vargs vocals, but it is when it happens unintentionally that it is interesting for me. Vocals have a touch of KORGULL THE EXTERMINATOR as well, very very raw. Drumming is excellent, the riffs are truly epicly crafted and the execution of it all is like HIS HERO IS GONE fused with the 3 first VOIVOD albums. But i am not a reviewer, I am a listener and an ENJOYER, so this is all i wanna say for now. This beautiful vinyl version (cleverly and tastefully coloured vinyl) will most likely become a collectors item, so run and buy it at first sight.
THANK YOU Rachel and Amanda and Eben for making this music happen!"
