Tom Wieser unleashes the Lead Lungs and Lurking Guitars to paint a sordid picture of life's wretchedness and betrayal. From emotion comes the conception. From anger comes the execution. From life comes the tragedy.

John Mehlbaum's Lead Guitar bestows sonic scorn utilizing calculated intent designed to caress and terrify your soul with haunting melody, swiftly delivering the blade and opening deep the squalid flesh, exposing your dying world.

Marcus Rifley on the Dead Skins smashes through the cold gates of the mundane, a primal scourge pounding your gut to drive the hook of reprisal. A dark heart will pulse fire and it will be known to sit at the right hand of power.

David Hayden on Bass Guitar fires off round after round of a vicious and violent low end assault . This ferocious attack on the senses builds to  crescendo then crashes down  dragging you into to the depths of the lowest register.
