*Allow the one man armada known as THUNDERCHIEF to alter your perception. Resounding with ghastly, brooding, and thick riffs, with an almost demon-like abundance of power. A wraith of sound and sword of sonic vengeance. There is a swirling and dark enchantment to this work; almost as if there is a spell being cast upon those who listen, and it sounds like the commanding of legions. So, if you think one man bands aren't capable of such power, this witch king of doom shall open your mind.
Adam - Sludgement Day*
