Currently busily working away at our next release. This time around it'll be our first full length album which is why it's taking a while to put together - So far, so good (so what) though.
This site (and our facebook page) should start to have some more regular updates as we get closer to a release date which i'm expecting will be early 2013 all going well.
The album will be themed, but we'll release the details of what the theme will be at a later date.

It's been quite a long time coming (about six months longer than i expected) but it's finally here and we're pretty proud of our new born E.P. 'Watch It Burn'.
With 9 new songs (for the paid version, six for free), including a cover of Anthrax's 'In My World' and XTCs 'Dear God' we'd like to think it's fairly decent value for $4 - and you can't beat FREE if you want to grab the main 6 tracks! If you prefer CDs we have those on our Merch page, and it's also downloadable from the usual places iTunes, Amazon etc.
I'd recommend a few listens as some of the songs might take a while to sink in ;)
\m/ ENJOY!!!!!!! \m/

It's Done! (finally). Watch It Burn went off to the printers today, so now the countdown begins until launch date which is, well... not sure yet, but it should be soon, i'll get back to you....
Actually i was keen to luanch it the day after the world ends on May 21st (according to these religious nuts) - that would've been funny, but it seems like too far away!
It'll have 6 tracks downloadable for Free just like our last EP 'Faceless', but this time around it'll have 3 bonus tracks including one new Shift song and two covers - for $4 - i've paid more than that for fucking coffee! let along nine songs!!
Here's the cover art:

We love horror flicks, and horror goes well with metal, so we figured why not put together a video that has both!
The video was put together by Duncan (who also played bass on the track), and uses clips from old school horror movies that are out of copyright and in the public domain (which means we can use them for free). Being an independent metal band that gives away our music (for the most part) means we have a fairly non-existent budget, so we had to come up with a creative way of putting together a decent video.
Clips used are from:
Carnival of Souls
The Brain that wouldnt die
The Atomic Brain
Hope you enjoy it! Remember to share it or let us know what you think.
