Still totally recommend this, probably the best BM I've heard in a long time and even though its only 5 tracks I must have listened at least 15-20 times. Perfect production. Dirty enough to give it that low-fi grit but clear enough so everything can be heard. At first I found myself wanting the vocals to be upped a bit in the mix, but it soon became so perfectly set into the mix that it couldn't be any other way. Its harshness weaves in-and-out effortlessly.

The songs are all exceptionally written and the melodies are always pulling at your heart-strings. The ending riff on the 1st track is fucking beautiful and the 3rd track has that old-school Emperor feel of blazing epicness.

I'd visit Ireland for a full-length.
Check my band out:
