Hey! Who the hell are these guys and why did they make such fucking amazing music!? After doing some digging, I found that these guys were actually legends from bands like Grave, Excruciate, and Unanimated all banding (harhar get it?) together to create a forgotten relic.
This album is heavy and intense. Double bass is used quite frequently here, along with blast beats to create an over-the-top chaotic and insane sound to their music. I'd say the demo gets faster as it progresses. The first song is a fairly long one and is quite varied throughout, with some neat processor-vocals towards the end. Not something you'd yawn to. And the last song is just fast. Some parts of this album almost go thrash with their riffing, and "Material Assassin" does not disappoint. A few guitar solos sprinkled here and there, but never too lengthy or grating, just the perfect icing on this magnificent piece of cake. Recommended!
