Careful, evil! At least the four beard bearers from Pennsylvania give their songs titles that give a hint of evil: "El Mano De Lucifer", "Legend Of The Spaceborn Killer", "The Necromancer", to name just a few. Behind this are hard rock bombs of sophisticated design, powerful and energy-spraying. Singer Brandon Yeagley, guitarist Chris Bishop, bassist Jake Figuroa and drummer Paul Figuroa have only been playing together in this formation since 2011, which may be one reason why their tracks sound so alive and fresh, as if the musicians had just discovered the genre for themselves. The videos of the young band reveal a certain tendency towards trash, show zombies and comics and know how to win you over with a certain naïve charm. When it comes to songwriting, the quartet convinces with sovereignty and lets us hope for interesting live experiences in this country as well. Despite all wildness, the tempo of some tracks is somewhat reduced, which gives them a more intense effect ("Night Of The Sacrifice", "Fly On The Wall", "Queen Of The Light"). The combination of metal and funk grooves gives the slower as well as the uptempo numbers a powerful kick.
