Vicious Nature

The EP

Twisted Psychotic:   A great track going up and down like a roller coaster ride another head banging track …


The Silence that Kills:  No chance of getting killed as it jumps right in at you .  Raw and heavy and wonderful – vocals really suiting this one

System of Disorder: A bonus live track recorded at Wizzfest in Belgium in 2015 – Starting off with the Whoa oh oh to get their audience going and you feel like you’re there with them especially as they join in (and so do you.) A great track

The whole EP is well worth a listen, their sound reminds me a little of System of a Down/Rage against the Machine it’s a whiplash risk  as it will definitely get you throwing your hair and horns about …
