The new face of brutality!

This disc was spawned on July 31st and should be available near you as you read this, so when youíre done your smartest decision this year will be to go get it.

Straight ahead, full force metal with an unbelievable punch. How else do you want it? Vocals that rival early Phil Anselmoís attitude and power, crushing riffs that are also melodic passages and riveting double bass drums that pound from all sides. An assault on the senses is an understatement.

The riffs arenít just riffs, they grapple and gaff you from the start and only dig deeper throughout the entire disc. Guitarists Zoltan Bathory and Darrell Roberts trade licks back and forth and lay a solid foundation, allowing bassist Matt Snell and drummer Jeremy Spencer to cement the mayhem.

Vocalist Ivan Moody growls with grit and anger, and then his multidimensional voice shows itís strength during the sing along choruses.

Did he just say Ďsing along chorusesí?

Yea, I did. During Ashes or The Way of the Fist I dare you not to sing along while throwing the horns. Good luck.

The lyrics donít mince words, with hate and discontent flying as easily as the foot stomps. And the nice change of pace is that this isnít a screamo vocalist. You can understand Ivan, which makes the lyrics even more forceful.

The blend of old school and new school mentalities gives us a very brutal debut by which the band has set its own standards. The band has set themselves apart in todayís metal by simply not copying the tired metalcore formula.

No Mercy. Itís the Way of the Fist.
