Well, this is one of those CD's where I formed an opinion about it before I even listened to it.
I'm glad I listened to it. This CD is a throwback to old school sound as far as the production goes with the music having a doomy kinda sound to it. The vocals are kinda hard to peg as singer Jason Decay has his own style of delivering his vocals. I guess you could say it's a mix of black metal style yelling and clean grunts. Not to say that it doesn't sound cool cause it does.
This trio from Canada obviously has a love for Iron Maiden which shows itself quite clearly on the tracks "Storming In" and "Fortress Doomed". This is an overall great rocking CD. Fans of the older style production sound will enjoy this CD thoroughly and despite some slower doomy stuff it rocks pretty hard and made me bang my head quite a few times. For more info on the band or trying to get a hold of this CD go to their website (www.goathorn.com).
Definitely try this one out.
