𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: A brutal and unforgiving track with an underlying groove reminiscent of early Lamb Of God. with a blackened feel of hate and evil with nightmarish undertones, deep dark and full of hooks and overdose of melodic (fast-epic) riffing, with ravaging pickings of the bass.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Ron Bassman vocals (are kept to the same), (to me) for this single, the vocals are much harsher while embossing low (deep) rough grunts, with a hint of grindcore.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Fast, sick-brutal!! (bone-crushing) and double-dose of heavy thundering hell-bent drumming and countless blast-beats.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: After reviewing their last single ‘Dressed In You’, compared to this track… this band is like a monster under the Tyne bridge, getting more evil, hungrier, brutal, darker, extreme, more substantial and more epic and energetic in each song.

*full of brutalisation energy* * outrageously evil*

* entertaining* powerful* * more substantial*

Another Hell on the Tyne-Mothra


A fusion of extreme old-school death/black metal

with brutally of Experimentation

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The Artwork is fascinating, showing a tomb/vault of some-sort and a child’s crypt, making the picture ‘Angelic’ but ‘Demonic’ at the same time (hence the tiled ‘As above. As below’).

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The artwork and the whole single.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none!
