𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Twin-fuel pumping tight & energetic of fast cut-throat shredding, with a filling of sharp (harmonization/raunchy) melodic/harsh & catchy & twisted-groovy rhythms/solos, with furious bass lines

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Relentless-groovy & energetic of devastating drum patterns & beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Once again I welcome you, a delicious thrash metal act, with a fusion of the purest and dirtiest death metal, threading some black metal


Mask of Pretense is a deliverance of only five songs, hitting the over twenty-two-minute mark, within those twenty-two minutes, this EP release as a lot to offer within its short time, while carrying the thrash metal flag, this young and fresh band, like Cruse Bomb I previous reviewed, will make a name for themselves (with other young guns in the game) while wearing their influences on their sleeves


Dissentience is a serving plate of enjoyable, a skillfully and carefully put-together act that as a thrash & melodic death metal substantial & structure with a slight flurry of feeling typical of black metal. In contrast, each track, music, craftsmanship and the musicianship has an overall deliverance of various compositions of individually of the energetic and remarkable playing style of full-on brutalization,
aggressive/progressive (modern) dark sound, that is filled with groovy & chanted moments, change of tempos within the songs/music, impeccable riffs & drumming, melodies & rhythms, smoking solos & insane riffs, a nasty set of vocals chords - worth the listen - memorable moment sections within each song - blood pumping and headbanging whirlwind of delight from start to end

*full of energy*

*entertaining of melodic haunting and dirty* *enjoyable*
