"Orcus"

The riffs are heavy and the vocals are gritty. Actually, with the lyric sheet in hand I can understand what Rich is saying. Does that mean it's not heavy enough? Maybe. I'll let it slide. The lyrics seem to revolve around bleeding, blood, vampires, and exsanguination. Fun stuff.

"Orcus"

"The Forgotten Prayer picks up the thrash party where it left off. The tune is faster and heavier and has me windmilling my head, wishing I still hadn't cut off my hair for that damn day job! Definitely air guitars galore here for me"
- Rough Edge


"Orcus"

"...Playing down-tuned metal with a good amount of groove and some worthy riffs that all hit below the belt(not to mention a viciously barked vocal style that fits them well) each of the tracks grind away at the ears capably in a style that should please fans of Demolition Hammer and Slayer."
- Metal Maniacs
