I'm so obsessed with this record, pure Acid/Warlock worship to me. Have you heard Cauchemar too?

Got some copies of this from 20 Buck Spin yesterday and gave it a quick listen last night.

First thoughts: In a similar vein to the demo and 7", but more confident and powerful. Fantastic solos that really hit the spot. I really appreciate the leaning towards rock rather heavy metal at certain times - a very charming and uncommon trait in this day and age. While I love the timbre of the singer's voice, the vocals do become a little monotonous after a while (I'm just dying for her to bust out a glass-shattering scream) but the fact that the LP is less that 30 minutes long is therefore an advantage.

Recommended to anyone who likes well played hard rock/heavy metal with soulful female vocals.

The album is fantastic. Hope to see you guys in Richmond. Are the tour dates 100% confirmed? You're not shown on The Triple's schedule, and I'll have a few hours drive to get there so just wanna make sure.

I liked the last album and it has had a lot of staying power, it might even have grown a bit on repeated listens. It's greatest feature is probably that it has an identity of it's own. Good luck with the recording.
I know I ain't doing much,
doing nothing means a lot to me.
