They take their influences from the likes of The Misfits, Venom, Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden, and Ghost to mention but a few,.
This is hardcore heavy goth rock done old school style with flashes of thrash and gothic style death metal. It opens with on a rain stained night with the distant sound of thunder as the orchestral organ moans onto life in a deep and mournful eulogy before all fades to silence. Suddenly the drums thunder into life as the bass thrums and lead springs into life. DooM’s rasping vocals lure you down into darkness and hellfire conjuring images of damnation and devils. So go put on your tightest corset dig out your blackest shirt indulge your inner goth and get ready to rock out to this brand new band with the old school vibe. 7.5/10
