They edge on death metal because of the vocals but the riffs are more of the thrash metal variety. It's a nice mixture of the two and on this album fits very well together. The songs are more up-tempo'd with some fancy riffs and solo's here and there.
'Tales Of The Ripper' is absolutely something to be proud of, especially for a first release. The strong production is a bonus. I'm going to watch and see what these lads end of doing over the next year, so much potential!
