Released: 2006, Bhurr Records
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
A southern Ontario 4 piece band known for its near legendary live performances. This relatively new band are quickly building up a strong following with their blend of hard rock and metal. Vocalist Mike Edwards, emits some extraordinary angst driven singing. His emotion is one of the most prominent and key features to this release. Musically we got some great guitar playing with some catchy riffs. There are not an over amount of leads that really grab you but it does produce some solid guitar-work. Steve Brough is the other driving force to this band with his heavy pounding and in your face drumming. He is one of Canada's better up and coming drummers.
Songs like “Century”, “Mexican Fireplace” and “Summer Set” really showcase their talent as songwriters and musicians. A track like "Black Horse" gives a nod to one of their influences with its heavy yet slow melody. It is a very early Sabbath influenced track.
An enjoyable new classic.
