"i have been told that this style of music is commonly called "power violence" ...i do not know if that is the actual term for it, but after hearing this album it is the way by which i will always refer to it...this is simply insane...this is some of the fastest(though not always; this disc also houses one of the slowest tracks that i have ever heard) craziest music that has ever battered my ears...although the lyrics are somewhat difficult to make out, the way that they are delivered makes them worth the effort...although some of these cuts(some taken from previous recordings and a live set) lack in the production department,but that is easily overlooked when the intensity of the album is taken into consideration...fans of agoraphobic nosebleed should eat this up...it lacks ANb's humor, but i promise that this disc will not dissappoint...it is also nice to see a band ignore the lure of printing their lyrics as a way to show off their poetic skill...instead opting to list the names and addresses of other bands from the scene in hopes of using their "major" label status as a means by which to spread the word about others...i have also heard things of this band passing out demos and such of others at their shows...could it be that this band actually wants their friends to succeed also... yes...finally someone has gone far enough without going too far..."

"listening to this album feels like a brick is being smashed into my genitals repeatedly! but i mean that in a good way. these guys dont play with the greatest skill but what they do play is very skillful in its flesh-ripping speed. the songs are short spurts (average about 25 secs. a song) of sonic music that gets me in the mood for putting myself through a brick wall and anyone else around me also. if you like music that has little to no thought put into it but is very fast and violent then this is the cd for you. all i have to say is be careful not to o.d. on adrenaline."
