Well-played, well-produced crust featuring riffs I seem to have heard hundreds and hundreds of times before. There're sulphuric whiffs of blackened stuff (think: early Martyrdöd) and occasional nods to Bolt Thrower, but for the most part it's that heavily shop-worn midpoint between His Hero Is Gone and Tragedy. It's thoroughly average, though, I guess, at least kinda entertaining in that releases like these represent some sort of fightback now that, post-Power Trip, a sizeable chunk of the hardcore scene is involved in a hamfisted 90s death metal landgrab.
