The drumming in this Toronto-based band really stands out, with a clear snare sound that cuts right through the mix to lead the sound, Fear Factory style. The songs are agressive slabs of downtuned palm-muted riffs, with angular grooves and rapidly changing drumbeats. Vocal-wise, I can hear Devin Townsend's Strapping Young lad style mixed with some Misery Index-like growls, in typical North American style. The album never gets boring, and the stand-out 'Dichotomy of Rage', complete with lead guitar/blastbeat breakdown is well worth waiting for.
For fans of Strapping Young Lad, DevilDriver and The Berzerker.
