Evil, slash-and-burn, bleeding-larynx hardcore has only so much room to grow. And this band -- formed by ex-members of American Nightmare, The Locust and Unbroken -- doesn't do much to add to the formula.

More explosively spastic than ominously dangerous, it's pretty clear that "screamo" it ain't, but simplistic, it ain't either.
