What the Danish guys are doing here is really heavy fare for my ears. A bastard composed of Doom (Metal), Hardcore and Independent sounds, paired with a little bit of punk attitude. To be quite honest, the result sounds unique, but nevertheless it cannot convince me. Those things called “songs” remind of recorded jam sessions: no recognizable structures, just a few recognizable choruses and no catchy hooklines. This is how the album works from the beginning to the end. In addition the sound is really disappointing. The guitars have the highest gain possible compared with the lowest noisegate possible. The result is a mud of guitar sounds, you can hardly hear riffs or melodies. The vocalist is another point of criticism: only shouting, no singing. No breaks for the listener and no alternation. The only exception of the wall of noise is the last track “Not in my Time”, which has something like a structure and the vocalist is actually trying to sing. Maybe somewhere out there are some guys who like this sort of noise. But not me. And I can certainly not understand how somebody could really like this kind of stuff. Sorry guys!
