Edgy yet catchy music that might as well could've been released in 2000. There are slight hints of early DCFC in 'Year of God' which is a good thing, I guess. Also, after owning this record for more than two years, I can say it ages very well.
Favorite track: Let's Rush This.
For what it's worth, this album was financed independently by the band. Our simple hope is for people - for you - to hear it. Please pay whatever you can justify, and let us know what you think. - 'thets.
