"Vicious Intent" is a testament to their dedication to their music and message, and it would not be out of the question to see it placed alongside records from defining national acts likes Figure Four, No Warning, and A Perfect Murder. "Vicious Intent" boasts four tracks that merge the worlds of New York metallic hardcore (Madball, Crown Of Thornz) and southern metal (Crowbar, Down). Tracks 1-5 are physical tracks, the remainder are digital bonus tracks.
