𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: The guitar work on this EP, clocks over into an overdrive of progressive, stoner/sludge and blues influences, with a bit of hardcore punk edge and attitude. With an overdose of thick/bold, hooks, melodies, fast/slow guitar playing with thick bass riffs to edge it all off.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: The singer has a soulful voice that's equally adept at belting out a good chorus as well as aggressive screams and clean singing and shouting.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Fast and furious drum playing with a progressive punk attitude, that is fast along with angry beats.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: With only six songs on the Ep, this an alternative grab bag of punk, stoner, sludge, blues and progressive, that is all mixed and blended with spectacular, awe-inspiring experimentation of honing their sound, intensity, melodies, loud, angry, sorrow and original sound & music.
A progressive/alternative band
that is like a tidal wave of wonderful
ear-catching experimental music and lyrics…
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork is eye-catching (reminiscent of Ahab’s artwork).
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: For me the whole EP.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none.
