We start with, or, should that be start on "Earth"...at 28 seconds long it stands as an intro of sorts, sounding like background noise on the USS Enterprise, as if to begin our journey into space...yes we're boldly going where we're not sure our ears should really go with this one but bare with me, the whole album is only 15mins long...and before we know it, we're "Circumbinary". Combining the frantic pace of early grass-roots thrash with vocals heavier than dark matter, we really are orbiting two mass musical entities, while "Ice Giant" at just 01:44 mins is a short and bloody brutal slab of punk-inspired death metal. One can't help but picture JACKASS member Brandon DiCamillo doing the vocals here in full-on GNARKILL mode, it's of that ilk, but it's not necessarily terrible.
Lead single "Waterworld" sadly doesn't have Kevin Costner on vocals in all his oceanic Mad Max splendour but again, at just 01:32 mins it serves as another sharp injection of more thrashy punk metal, finding itself somewhere between the likes of VENOM and KVELERTAK, until we find ourselves on "Lava Planet". This one is heavy, it's crushing and finds itself at the blackened, doomier end of their musical repatoire, in places having a subtle SATYRICON vibe instrumentally, before "Jupiter" ends things more like Uranus...full of shit. Taking this on face value you can see that, while despite being a concept album, it's not entirely an album that's meant to be taken seriously either. The guys can clearly play at this level, or at this musical depth I should say, this is some heavy music when it gets going, but it's also considerably light hearted. If you like your music noisy and have a free quarter of an our, give it a whirl, if not, you're probably better off avoiding this.
