Their most recent record, „Cult Psychotica“, was released in the US on Oct 6, 2017 with All Music giving it an 8 out of 10 stars, with reviewer Matt Collar noting, „the album is a red-eyed collection of fuzzy rock anthems, all centered on Drenik’s throaty, nasal-pitched sneer. What he lacks in outright vocal resonance, he makes up for with strutting rock attitude and literate, philosophical lyrics that are equal parts Lou Reed and Elliott Smith.“ Classic Rock Magazine picked lead single, Testament, as one of its best tracks of 2017. The current line-up is known for it’s blustering live performances that sometimes span over two hours with little breaks in between songs.
