“The Shedding Skin EP is a powerful and emotively atmospheric proposal, all creative muscle and melodic fire, and its first single The Wolf You Feed, a slice of thick enterprise.” – The RingMaster Review 
 
“Moments like the climax of Exile encapsulate the magic that the band are capable of” – Musicology 7/10

New Single CROOKED EMPIRE out on 23rd Feb 2018

On the song, the band say: “Crooked Empire explores the atrocities caused by possession and deception. The lyrics delve into how a person can prey on an individuals vulnerability, manipulating them into doing whatever they say for their own sadistic desires. Crooked Empire embodies the aftermath caused by a self appointed individual who uses their false authority to brainwash an easily influenced group of people”.
