Youniverse” is a strong release from a band that’s been around since 1997 and is different, one that’s been tossing out a rare mix of Thrash/Industrial/Rock/Death Metal. What you will get here is a unique head banging experience, drumming is phenomenal, an awe inspiring experience. Guitars are what demand your attention, they catapult you right into the mix of it all. It's aggressive, maybe a little punch you in the face attitude. Vocals fit right into this mixture, with bass thundering through your ears. All in all, a great album. I guess some would also call it technical, but damn this is just good solid music, one that holds your attention, and trust me on this, its one of those foot tapping, nodding your head, fingers drumming types of albums. What’s not to enjoy. Everything just seems to fit perfectly on here. For an album to be this put together like this, means alot of time went into the making of it, some thought, not just let’s bang this out. Well done everyone. I am impressed.
