I think for Frontiers Records it’s unusual to release this kind of album. Do not expect lots of keyboards nor an album which you put on and easily enjoy. Not at all. This album gives you a kick in the stomach (lower might be too painfull...). Maybe the title of the album is in some way self-explanatory, ‘gravitas’ being the Latin word for heaviness.

And that’s what it actually is. Heavy metal, but with lots of melody in it. They’ve found themselves  a very good vocalist in Matt Mitchell, and the guitar duo does wonders as well.

It’s hard to pick out one favourite song, since they are all almost equally good. These guys definitely deserve a chance on success. Success they already have achieved locally in the Brighton rock scene, but why not expand your horizons?
