After a great intro, the nasty speed kicks in at the 40 second mark with no frills, before the controversial Sean Killian’s vocals rip in. He can’t sing, but it does it fast and with hardcore-esque panache, so it works for the approach and grows on you. Shout out to Dean Dell’s killer bass, which rivals D.D. Verni here.
