We are not trying to be 'evil' and we are not trying to be 'tru black' or out thrash any of the up and coming thrashers. We are building the right sound for Anticosm.
"Said that we would like to say we have completed writing most of our upcoming full length and 30% of which is almost learned. We do hope everyone likes it and though we cant guarantee it will be 'consistent' we can guarantee it will be awesome to drink to!"
