Evolution

This brutal slice of OSDM sees drummer Jake Burden take over on main vocals, with bassist Paul providing backing. A relentless onslaught of a song shows the true depth of talent in Acherontia Styx, with Jakes ferocious traditional death growl being equal in impact to those sung by lead vocalist Grant. Paul provides his signature black metal screams as a backing vocal harmony.

Hurricane Of Pain
