This band's debut is an interesting situation. I want to like this album and at times I do, but then another song comes over the speakers and I think to myself, why did I buy this album? That, for me at least, is a battle I find myself fighting when I buy a CD from a new band frequently.
The songs on this album are somewhat generic in their structure and each one has very little to distinguish one from the other. There are some varying elements that come in to play, such as a slow down in tempo and a scream instead of a belch vocal. This falls under the Noise genre and while I've never been into it a whole lot, I try to give everything a shot.
That being said, nothing overly impressed me with this album and I haven't listened to it since the day that I bought it. So unless you're big into the Noise Metal, find something else out there that might work for you.
