- Hate Fuelled Abuse. Industrial intro leads
into immense opening riff. This is a relentless hardcore track
with a classic rock style bassline adding an unexpected groove.
The slower section is skull-crushingly heavy. Song ends at
warp factor speed - overall a great opener.
- Beer Slag. Great title. Another cracking
opening riff. Verses drive along relentlessly. Again exhibits
an underlying groove whilst having a direct sludge/hardcore
feel. The closing section slows down to doom speed and reminded
me of early Sabbath or Trouble. Brutally heavy end to the
- Born From Anger. Wow! Another superb lead-off
riff. Slower overall but has an underlying menace.The bridge
section sees the song explode to warp speed, before the slower
aggression returns to conclude the track.
- Pure Aggression. Starts slowly in a doom/stoner
manner and then changes tempo several times throughout. Does
what it says on the tin - title says it all.
- For You. Feedback gives way to bass-driven
concussive riff. There's a brief respite after the second
chorus before the main churning riff returns. Quality track
and unsurprisingly a mainstay of their live performances.
- My Fire. Another driving bass led assault.
Slows down to monolithic doom pace and generates immense power.
Aggressive barked vocals complete the viciousness. A prolonged
power chord signals the return of the main riff albeit at
a faster tempo.
- Start Her Up. Justifiably the encore of
their live preformances. Go and see them live and enjoy!!
An absolute gem.
- Unwanted. Quality stoner opening riff.
Not much to add to previous comments. Tempo changes handled
effectively and dynamically.
- Kill With Your Mind. Opens with powerful
doom riff. The faster section works tremendously well.
This album sees Godsize
mix sludge, doom, hardcore and
stoner elements precisely and powerfully. Gets a bit samey, but
what album in these genres doesn't? It's well produced and the
basswork really comes to the fore with a great bounce driving
the songs along. Sounds a bit flat compared to seeing them on
stage, but then they are superb live. Actually onstage excludes
the vocalist Kris who spends most of their sets marauding around
the audience. Go and see them live and then play this album and
grin as the memories flood back. Another cracking release from
(who also boast Slab in their portfolio)
- wholeheartedly recommended by the Chopmeister!!
