Biography for the band simply says: Not trying to reinvent the wheel. We keep it simple. We keep it real.

In January 2012 this aggressive band formed and gained more than 14,000 fans on facebook, and all within the first two weeks of start-up, and this was done without a single song out there. It could be too that for two years these 5 guys were driven hard with touring and previous knowledge of them from previous bands.

This is their 2nd album and I can safely say you will lots of aggression and old school philosophy, which I am sure will be causing some brutal moshing when they play live.

For being together for such a short period of time, they crush it, a true essence of a band that knows what they want and how to put it out there for all to enjoy. They have sealed their sound. If you really want something with a broad fusion of extreme metal and hardcore punk, then you have come to the right place.  What you will also find are the metal side of things as well. When you grow up with that surrounding you, its only natural to lean that way, it has an influence.   

Listen to all twelve tracks and I think you will agree that “Back In The Day” is the strong point on the album, but let’s not forget the other songs on this album are just as strong, and varied. I do really like the song “Raise Your Voice“, just for what it says, to stay true, don’t change because others put you down. Should be the song for anti-bully websites.
