Lind and the band remind listeners most obviously of Kreator, as the band has often been coined the American version- sick breakdowns like the 1:25 mark help sell this point with aplomb. Hailing from Wisconsin, they never quite launched the way they could have, probably arriving too late for the thrash boom and soon broke up, not releasing a follow-up until 2015.
