In an overcrowded sea of new metal acts fighting for exposure, few stand out as being true descendants of speed and thrash metal founders like Exodus, Testament, and Sacred Reich. Delusions Of bring to the stage and studio all that made that sound so innovative and exciting during it's high watermark in the late 80's and early 90's. Their self-titled debut EP pays homage to metal's past legacies without losing a firm foothold on the present and future of the genre. Guitarists Corey Fritz and Curtis Gaudet weave a web of riffs and epic lead hooks backed by a stunning performance by young drummer powerhouse Kane Kuiack. Slick and professionally produced, it features no shortage of dynamic contrasts and memorable vocals, from the cutting edges of the riffs in "Broken Wings" and "Dead Lust" to the brooding and hypnotic pace of the brilliant "Addiction'. With no lack of technical ability or songwriting vision, Delusions Of are fully equipped to take on the industry as Western Canada's next genre-defining metal act.
