𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Hateful groovy/death like riffs that are deep, dark and full of hooks and tempo changes, with a marriage of hell-bent bass licks.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Harsh/cruel vocal technique, mixed with low deep death growls.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Filled with the darkness of hateful slow/mid-tempo groovy bone-crushing beats and raw blast-beats.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Flying in, of over eighteen minutes of extreme avant-garde, [you can ask for!]!Embedded with harshest, brutality, slow, mid/fast, groovy, raw & energetic of horror-ish/nightmare-ish sound, while embracing complexity/technical and aggressive death metal (hint of black metal & old-school) with a grim/nasty death-wish attitude.

  • The title track, 'Your Possible Pasts' is a dark emotional piece with a beautiful acoustic - build-up that launches into a mechanical onslaught

  • Tracks 'Fallen' and 'Lecter' plant their feet into old school death and black metal roots and provide a relentless assault...

  • 'Eyes of Glass' track combine guest vocals from Ten additional vocalists into a bouncing whirlwind of hooks and grooves.

  • ​The beautiful lady provides that awesome operatic voice on the song 'Eyes of Glass' was provided by Tracy Moore (Primitive Machine), the lead vocals of the Irish Rock band 'Primitive Machine'


A Mothra​

old-school of

Brutal & Extreme

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: Jumping back to old-school again, clear black & white image; It’s the ring that catches my attention, With the songs and a ruby stone in the middle of the ring! The Eyes of Glass: “the act of others being able to see themselves or a part of their identity in another person.”

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: For me, it has to be the whole EP, Acherontia Styx, pulled off, a remarkable record fill with avant-garde, guests, groovy music & old-school extreme metal!
