Are you ready? Strap in for a monstrous noise cannonball that a trio of local boys from Sunderland are about to remorselessly blast into you. The opening ditty Triumphant unnerves with its strange almost ambient intro, only to pummel you ceaselessly about the brain; triumphant is indeed the sense I would have being the bludgeoner, the victim is alas helpless as the onslaught invariably continues unabated across the next seven tracks.

It’s anarcho-punk metal snarled, bawled, bloodied and cursed, squarely planted in thrash of the finest order with towering ramparts smashing all in its wake. I like it very much and if you know about the Yersin you should too. Fans will certainly not be disappointed, cracking stuff!
