This band features the same energy and polish found in other Cyber-Core acts such as Gravity Kills, Needle, Nerve Job, 16 Volt, 13 Mg., and 29 Died. Most of the songs found here are fast paced with thrashing guitars, slamming drums, electronics, synths, and slightly distorted screaming vocals. Songs such as "P.A.M.F." sound strictly like hard-core punk. But there are a lot of pure industrial songs to be found here as well. There is a mix between straight forward angry yelling assaults, and slower paced melodic songs. So this album does deliver quite a variety of different styles. There isn't a bad song to be found here. The production quality is very clean and polished from start to finish. My only complaint is that the songs seem a bit short. They end before you want them to. This makes the album go by pretty fast. But it's a blast while it lasts.
