I have not heard such raw power and emotion as I heard from Lifer in quite a long time. Lifer's music is alive and full of fire right from the opening chord. Not every track rocks hard - some of this CD is slow and lagging - however, the majority of this CD cooks like nobody's business.

I don't know much about this band, but I know this: Lifer fucking rocks!! This band's natural energy and chemistry are apparent from one tune to the next. Hell, even the not-so-great songs still manage to be forceful and stylish. 

In my humble opinion, Lifer has more potential than most of the new bands I have heard this year. Rock on Lifer! Let's hear some more!
