If you had an orgy with FEAR FACTORY, SYL, PANTERA and PISSING RAZORS, this would be the end result. The music is fast and furious and will grab you by the throat right from the get go. The drums come complete with clickers because you can hear them loud and clear with the double bass action.
"Transience" takes off right away and just when you think that you have heard it all before, you get some atmosphere that adds just a little depth to the music and the vocals switch back and forth from aggressive to passive. It's a balance desperately needed in order to keep things fresh. The pacing remains quick as lightning, but there is some tempo changes going on here that is always a good thing. After a while with this band, things start to all sound the same with the exception of the different vibes that are used in each track. They all have a futuristic feel and are arranged differently each time which is always a good thing. The band is extremely tight with their musicianship and they know what they are doing, but after a while it seems programmed and emotionless. It's just track after track of power and anger mixed with solid production.
Trust me, when I say that you have heard it all before and that's not always a bad thing, but I think that they could have used a bit more variation here. I think that they have something to offer, but need to mix it up a bit if they want to stand out and quit being compared to the other bands mentioned before. (Online July 2, 2005)
