Big Bang is a visceral hardcore punk tune that brings to mind Paint it Blacks New Lexicon. You get gritty, raw hardcore punk with deep throated gruff vocals.

Image of Modern Man is a bit more straightforward and uses more melody to infuse the song with a more energetic feeling.
Sakes Alive!! deliver another solid EP. I cant wait for Act III to arrive so that the band can begin working on a full-length.
