Their trappings suggest occult rock of the Devil's Blood ilk, but this ostensibly demonic Austin, Tex. outfit sounds more like the commercial end of grunge: Alice In Chains harmonies, clearly, but also artsier inheritors like Days Of The New and, disturbingly, every-hair-in-place moaners like David Cook. There's gothic metal in there, too: oafish Americans Danzig and Type O Negative, at least, plus '90s Metallica. Heavy riffs are rare, but "The Last Man On Earth"'s Chris Isaak hushabilly is a surprise, and chain and wind sounds lend "I Am Rebirth" and "Here Is The Grave" an eerie atmosphere.
