They played shows until 2007 and then went on an indefinite hiatus after leaving two excellent… Read More R.A.M.B.O. – Defy Extinction CD (Relapse Records)

Our friends at Cherub Dream Records sent us another treat. At first, this tape seemed like an experimental piece, mainly because of abstract visual imagery, but I was wrong.
