This record feels like one giant outro of math-rock and punkish metal, a punishing assault of cymbal crashes and dueling guitar notes. These guys have the upside down cross and the overtly religious band name. They also have the death wail and mush mouth growl of other black metal bands, but their music aligns more properly with the Isis's and Pelican's of the music world. This is a band that is yearning to be instrumental, but a screeching banshee won't let them.
