The second offering from Toxaemia, and their style has changed quite a bit. The production is probably the most notable difference, and it seems a lot more tinny and even overproduced at some points. The percussion is loud and in your face, sometimes overpowering like in Rippikoulu's Musta Seremonia. There is also more aggression, so much so that the EP takes on sort of a thrashy feel, with its quick riffs and excellent solos. The vocals are raspy gutturals, the kind that I really enjoy. A great EP, and probably better then their initial demo, what with the higher quality riffing.
