I liked the instrumentation but the rappers are clearly the weakest link in the band. They seem like such amateurs.

Limp Bizkit, just with trendier guitar playing and less vulgarities.

I actually like these guys. White guy sounds like Rou from Enter Shikari. Who'm they obviously have taken some pointers from. Agreed though, white guy should rap more, and one of those dudes should learn to scream. THEN they would be a force to be reckoned with.

The EP was decent, but the band really needs more diversity.

I like rap and hip-hop, and quite enjoy djent so I've grown quite a little disheartened by not being able to like these guys at all.

Nu-Metal is back. Also seeing as he's a Brit, the lyrics are horrible.

I recall this band as shitty Uk rappers over top of shitty "djent" riffs, so I think I'll pass.

Those 2 rappers are so average. The instrumentation is unnoriginal and insipid, far worse than big part of the djent acts

This band is every bit as mediocre to slightly below mediocre as the posts in this thread suggest.

May be going too fast into a full album, should've taken some time to digest the feedback from the EP (positive and negative) and really worked to develop the sound they're working on cos if they can get it right this can be a great band. Though I did love the EP I see where people come from that don't like it.

Very true. Their first song seemed so interesting and full of promise. One EP later and it's gone. I can't believe I'm saying this, but they should mix some Issues hip-hop junk or whatever it is that Enter Shikari does in there to add some catchiness, heaviness, and changes in tempo. It would be even more of a guilty pleasure.
