Fairly standard Swedish melodic death metal from the birthplace of the genre, Gothenburg. Johannes Eckerström's vocals are a bit much at times, sometimes effectively growling but more often a slightly higher-pitched, out-of-control snarl. Two albums as of this writing, time to mature, but for the moment a lot of their music has a "heard-that-before" feel to it, competently done though it is.
