Russell Allen comments, "We are extremely honoured to be voted New Artist of the Year in the metal category by iTUNES UK and we can't wait to cross the pond and rock out with all the awesome UK metal heads!"

On Omertà, the group cranks out one bruising hard rock anthem after another. Songs like the first single Undaunted and Hit the Wall hijack the right level of instrumental intricacy and taut technicality while grooving and moving fluidly. At the same time, Angel Sky takes flight on a massive lead and heavenly refrain.
The band is currently gearing up to record a number of cover songs for a special CD edition of Omertà to be released in 2013.
