Review for iDeviant :: twilight-magazin.de
This weekend has been a lot of talk about "hardness" (cf. DEICIDE Review). But one thing is clear Anihilated are harder than any hard sausage depending went over the bar in our village Landschlachterei. The boys are in fact so hard that still buy 500g black pudding to eat equal to before this has become ever fixed.
With "Scorched Earth Policy", the British have celebrated in 2010 a brilliant comeback. But the fact that they can now reloading such a hammer, would not even I expected.

And thus the chapel differs alike in many ways from the norm - and that's a good thing.

Now, if additionally tighten XENTRIX with a similarly strong comeback album, the holy trinity with ONSLAUGHT and Anihilated is restored and I'll think to change in the Anglican Church.
