Taylor
(guitars) further states: "We are extremely excited and anxious for our new release. As a band we haven't put a new album out in five years. Since then we have grown as musicians and as people. Over the past year we have been touring nonstop in support of this new effort. We feel that our sound is different than a lot of bands. The goal of this unit is to blend all styles and genres into one sound that we call our own. We feel that our music can appeal to any type of heavy music listener.

'No Mercy, No Forgiveness' is the next step in the progression of our sound. There are some very new and different things on this album that this band has never done before. Hopefully this will take us to the next level and allow us to stay on the road as that is what we do best. Take a look at our Myspace page to see if we are coming to a town near you and we hope to see you all soon."
