The drums in this are fucking unbelievable.

The instrumentation in general is quite impressive. Definitely a group of skilled musicians, and the songwriting kicks ass as well, so there's nothing not to love.

Yeah the instrumentation is flawless including these vocals. Definitely a great example of modern thrash which most thrash bands should achieve.
