Bartosz Take a ride on the crazy bull! This voice ... ! Hell yeah, this is really good stuff! These four guys have created a masterpiece with this record. I only can hope to get some more awesomeness like this in the near future. Favorite track: Demon By Your Side.

Bucky Really digging the heavy retro vibes these guys emit. Hard rocking solos, killer grooves, and burly vocals sounding like a John Bush/Lee Ving protege saturated with reefer smoke. Like Paul mentioned this has evolved nicely from the raw demo material also worth picking up. Deserves your attention.

Track Name: Live For The Fire
You can feel it in the air
Hear it in the breeze
Now it's time to ask yourself
Who you think you are

The path of the righteous can wind on forever
The way of the damned is the road to instant pleasure

No need to fear
What you cannot see
Step into my circle
Forget the past with me

I live for the fire and the path that's less worn
You can find me in the burning tree
Where the wicked mind is born

The golden staircase is spiraling down
The windows are there, but you can't see through
The cross and the hook, you know it screams to you
Live for the fire is all you can do
Track Name: Demon By Your Side
You pulled the wool over my eyes
Now, I hope you're satisfied
Everybody's got their problems
That old demon by their side

You thought you had me blind
Searching for your love
It's not a question of whether it's true
It's just I believed in you
I believed

Stop right now
The blade can't go any further
I heard on down that line, it don't get much colder
I'll remember you now
How I remember you then
Pale and green and scattered in the wind
