Emo and emocore-leaning punk rock that ranges from unremarkable to unlistenable. I like their energy and edge, but they lack distinction and they sound awfully sloppy.

The guitars, drums, and distortion sound too in-your-face in the mix. It’s hard to distinguish any melodic lines besides the vocals that, at their best, sound like a bland version of Billie Joe Armstrong, but are usually just terribly off-key.

There are moments where the riffing sounds pretty good – the beginning of “Citadel”, “Pressure”, etc. Sadly, anything good about the band gets drowned out by poor production, weak songwriting, and unrefined emo-y vocals.
