released January 6, 2014
Stunning debut full length from Finland's Haapoja. Blackened angular hardcore that manages to keep the rhythm in the midst of dissonant chaos. A rare mix of being technically complex while still maintaining the groove. Rorscach meets Deathspell Omega?
From Mass Deadening (CA): "Progressive, plodding, and selectively blasting riff-filled blackened hardcore from Finland that recalls the unhinged aspects of Rorschach crossed with the likewise uncategorizeable sensibilities of German bands like Acme and Systral; meaning cascading and open guitar riffs over a mechanically perfect rhythm section, delivered with relentlessly clinical precision."
