D-beat, punk, hardcore, metal, riffs, skulls, paintings of dudes in robes on album covers, swinging an axe into your enemy's skull, gurning, leather, headbanging, the pursuit of evil in its myriad tentacled form, beer. If any of those tickle your fancy in any way, shape or form, you would be well advised to check out this powerhouse trio.

They mash up genres like a number of bands before them, paying just enough tribute to those that paved the way to be reverent, whilst still throwing enough care to the wind to straight up rock out and entertain. It needs more pickslides, but then everything does nowadays.

At seven songs this may seem like it won't be long enough, but it's pitched perfectly and if anything this leaves you wanting more, and you don't get that often.
