I heard a little of this on the internet and gave it a shot. the little 30 second samples do not do this cd justice it is amazing! lead guitarist Dan Gapen and drummer Ryan Shutle standout on this cd with Dan ripping it up and Ryan pounding you into oblivion! bassist Jeff Paulick also does lead vocals which takes a little to get use to but fits the attack of this band. Alex Lackner is the other guitarist keeping up the onslaught and has a few lead moments where he holds his own! this is the second launch of this cd the first was by the band but Metal Blade and James Murphy send this cd into the stratosphere! this cd will be up there for album of the year!
