Feels like a very appropriate album cover and title for how things are going in the world. Just a wasteland charred remains. It’s honestly how things feel these days.
Cloak reminds me a awful lot of Tribulation minus the goth-inspired stage presence. Theirs is a death metal sound, but it feels more rooted in the classic rock ‘n roll vibe than your traditional or grind death metal sound. This feels like a really good gateway album for someone wanting to explore death metal. It is very accessible sound-wise and has quite a bit of engaging melodic moments thrown in with the more aggressive riffs. All in all, this is just a very capably produced album albeit one that never reaches those truly inspiring moments. Good, but not great.
