CYNARAE: Self-titled: LP

Holy shitballs. Total ‘90s Bremen hardcore worship ala Morser, Systral, and Carol, with a hearty dose of the same era’s Canadian counterparts (Uranus, One Eyed God Prophecy, Drift, Jonah, et al). Heavy, chaotic, melodic, evil, and just pummeling. This is so up my alley that it almost feels unfair to review it. My only “complaint” is that it should be about five times as long. Incredible.
