“Smokey Robinson” opens up with a razor-sharp riff, and Steve Murphy‘s vocals are clean and piercing. The song picks up the tempo into a crushing chorus. “Mr. O” brings forth a fuzzy, stoner riff, but the vocals are the highlight here. The more I listen to this album, the more I compare Murphy to Ozzy Osbourne. No, he doesn’t sound a lot like him, but his ability to not only blend in with the instrumentation but pierce each song leads me to this conclusion. “W2” brings more of a Sabbath or Trouble doom feel to it. “Mythomania” slows and brings it down a bit crescendoing into a massive wall of sound before dropping back down. It truly is a thing of beauty. “Green Diamonds” is more upbeat with an early ’70s, crushing feel to it. “Time for War” takes you out of this album on a monumental tone. It’s brutal and deep with a post-metal, Neurosis vibe. --skullsnbones
