All these and are taken from reviews of the dooyooCommunity.
|Warriors - Agnostic Front|
Punk roots still hold their own against the oppressive hardcore and metal elements.
Lacks any kind of originality or self-worth.

Relaxing and eclectic ambience.
Only suited for relaxation or background music, otherwise soon becomes repetitive and dull.

Competent technical death metal that doesn't show off.

Very heavy, just what you expect.
Certainly not for the faint hearted.

Some uninspired and dull moments

Some excellent tracks and a mixture of styles
Some tired, cliched collaborations
