This is some explosive stuff right here: a 10-song blast of ultra-condensed, gloom-tinged hardcore that merges desperate 00s screamo, combustible emoviolence and heftier 90s thuds to rather glorious effect. The names I'm pulling from my hat include Neil Perry, Uranus and In/humanity circa 'The History Behind The Mystery', and while that might make things sound 'retro' there’s also a sharp modernity at play that sees FX-laden passages and bouts of Zann-like heaviness woven into the wider fabric in a manner so seamless that they neither distract nor detract from the overall excitement. Excellent.
