    the most under-rated band in heavy music

    This cd is great and not enough people know about it. the drum work and guitar work are exceptional and the vocals are the same. If this band toured more I think they would be just as popular if not more popular than 90% of the silly hardcore bands out their, *ahem* god forbid, walls of jericho, unearth, ect, ect and all the rest of those dumb ferret/trustkill clone bands that all sound the same.
