This is suprisingly a really good cd. Think Botch and (better) Norma Jean meets Lavotchkin. If you haven't heard those bands then you're missing out. Mathy tech-metal combined with varying screaming/growling. I was very impressed. Too bad they're religious.

Thumbscrew are absolutely insane. the "WHORE" disc continues where they left off with their previous effort. if you consider yourself a fan of technical bands like Converge, Ed Gein, and Harlots then Thumbscrew will deliver. 'nough said.
