    Yes!!!!!!!! Great song, loving the drums!

  • sape81

    +this will be the gate opener+

  • marsyas

    I think the only good in this song is….the drums….

  • Peter Konc

    This song is very inspired by Thorns (Underneath the Universe 2 i think). The sound, feeling, riffs. I really like it.

  • bob

    The drums sound like weak ass tic tacs as always. Fuck clicky drums, fuck Hellhammer.

  • Drusilla Lastes

    So what you want? Your a bummer Bob and shame on you for trying to make your non-existing self known and better by trying to insult Hellhammer drumming techniques….go away your breathing everybody’s air..

  • Xul Oter

    Solid song, but agreed on the Thorns influence. It`s not necessarily a bad thing though, and the song IS MayheM in essence. Can`t wait for the whole album to get released! m/
