DESOLATE VOID: No Sign of Better Times: CD

Metal stuff with the requisite crunchy, growly vocals. They don’t much thrash it up, but instead go with odd rhythm patterns and lyrics that don’t seem overly obsessed with Satan and/or Odin. This stuff ain’t always my cup o’ tea, but there’s enough punk influence in there to keep things from getting silly.
