This Los Angeles based quintet, is releasing their d├ębut (self released) album Twilight Upon Us, on August 19th. I have to say I didn't know much about this band prior to listening to Twilight Upon Us. Established in 2010 this "Raucous Metallic Hardcore" as they refer to themselves really raised the bar in the sludgecore genre for me. I have to say the relentless assault this album puts you through is quite amazing.

Twilight Upon Us really pulls you in from the beginning. Its basis is in hardcore but brings a heavy sludgey metal sound with. There is much distortion but they do clean it up some and throw it in the mix. I can't say this enough this album is seriously HEAVY. They truely brandish attitude that doesn't quit throughout the ten tracks. It's violent and impressive and I can't wait to get my hands on some of their ealier splits and EP's.

I highly recommend picking this up on August 19th especially for all those out there who really love it heavy. The punishing riffs is enough to make me want to purchase this alone. I love that they seem to be in a genre all their own. The display hardcore, sludge, doom metal, and even a little psychedelic/stoner rock. It really shows a experimental side and makes this a diverse album. I have to say I didn't know anything about them prior to this album, but I fucking love it! I can't wait to see where they go from here and hope to see them come to the east coast.

In conclusion, Twilight Upon Us is a heavy beatdown and I feel like they really brought it. I am not normally a fan of the sludge genre alone but this album surpassed my expectations. It's brutal and heavy as fuck, what more could you ask for? I advise picking this album up.
