Work moves along more swiftly when you have metal blasting on your headphones.

For those who may not know this is the project of the late and great Jared Anderson (original bassist of Hate Eternal) featuring Jared on both bass and guitar duties plus Erik Rutan lending a hand on rhythm section plus Derek Roddy and Tony Laureano sharing the throne.
