Review by Anna on February 1, 2012.

Alright. I must first clarify that this band was not exactly my cup of tea by any stretch, so take what you read with a grain of salt. This EP entitled "Wormhole" has three tracks of treble-heavy, guitar-driven, sampled digital aggression that is organized and well put-together despite the variety of maddening sounds and contrasts.

We are treated to some bouts of, I suppose, “emotional” nu-metal styled vocals contrasted with scratchy, shouted shrieks, coupled with some, oh, “bad-ass” guitar duets here and there. This style of guitar playing and constantly churning medley of digital sounds somehow reminds me of that game Sonic the Hedgehog. This music might do well as accompaniment for a similar video game, perhaps targeted towards boys in the 7-14 age group. If digitally sampled, alternative-y, rave-ish music or nu-metal sounds interesting to you, you may want to check this out.
