In my opinion the vocals are ok but its true that they can be much better.

I have the album. It has some cool songs and good moments, but I agree that the singing is the weak point.

Vocal fits the guitar sounds. It is quite okay.

I decided to order a copy! Bought it through their bandcamp!

Where do you had your limited edition copy? (I suppose you have this according to the pic in the "skatepunkers thank you" topic)

Yes it does!

If you'd like help: you said "Where do you had your limited edition copy?" It's better to say "Where did you get your limited edition copy?" I know, stupid English.

Yeah, after reading myself I figured out I should have said it this way! thanks for the tip! But at least you understood what I said even if it was mistaken :P

Back to topic, I'm surprised this band doesn't get more recognition and isn't really talked about in here, I think these guys are mixing skatepunk/punkpop and metal riffs very very well!
This will be my first cd to come from Africa!

My favorite African release is the Crossfire Collision EP, but this one is cool too.
