After a long wait, we finally get the split between the American Arghoslent and the Canadian Martial Barrage. The Arghoslent tracks were recorded during the same session as their latest full length, and feature similar production. The songs seem somewhat like the b-sides of "Hornets of the Pogrom" but are still quite enjoyable. The Martial Barrage side is the first material we've heard since their debut album 4 years ago, and it proves to be really crushing, although the production could be significantly improved. The lead guitar playing has really improved in this band as well, with the addition of a new member.
