Remember the name, these guys are going to be massive, their debut full-length album is a monster, a kickback to the mid 90’s early 2000’s Groove Metal/ Metalcore and it is awesome.

Eight tracks of sheer sonic onslaught that goes up and down like a fiddler’s elbow and blows you away. Opening track ‘Symptoms Of Betrayal’ sets the tone for the whole album with its downright savage approach, a complete assault on the senses with vocals straight from hell and the accompanying guitar, bass and drum not far behind, quite possibly one of the best opening tracks you will hear, nearly as good as Pantera’s ‘Mouth For War’ when that was released.

‘Splitting Hairs Spitting Bone’ follows hot on its heels and is similar to the open track in that it batters you relentlessly with unbelievable drumming and savage riffs. The most astounding thing about this band is the fact they are a quartet, they sound they produce makes it feel like there is at least five or six playing and with ‘Imposter’ is easy to see why. Machine gun style drumming, monster riffs and bass lines, it’s just amazing. ‘The Fool On The Hill’ is brilliant, incessant drumming, the sheer power of the vocals, riffs and the haunting harmonies just make this an absolute belter.

Title track ‘In The Name Of Nothing’ starts off slowly and very mellow for all of about twenty-five seconds before is descends into chaos, hammering you into submission with pounding machine gun like drums, chugging riffs and bass. ‘Those Possessed By Devils’ has the most amazing bass line heard in a long time and backed up by the atomic drumming of Andy Brown and the snarling vocals of Gavin Marshall, it is possibly the best track on the album, unrelenting and right in your face, quite simply put stunning and when the breakdown hits about three minutes in, it’s just wow all the way. ‘Let The Fire Burn’ starts out slow initially and then proceeds to melt your face with its intensity. The last track ‘Tamam Shud’ goes through the whole range of metal from a slow melodic acoustic opening to all-out Metalcore, a real rollercoaster of emotions with powerful vocals the by now trademark savage drumming unbelievable riffs and bass, an absolutely epic way to finish an outstanding debut album.
