“I’m not sure who keeps giving my phone number to the most talented musicians on the planet but, I couldn’t be more thrilled! I used to wonder what a metal band would sound like with all the cheat codes unlocked and well, I don’t wonder about that anymore. I’m blown away by the modern sound and groove in the material. The chaos has been harnessed and it’s incredibly heavy.” ADLER said.
