Have a listen to their debut EP “Scandalous Jointz” and you will hear thought provoking lyrics as well as precision and technicality often found in metal and the energy and ferocity of their predecessors breakdown.

The album “Scandalous Jointz“features ex-members of well-known bands like Hoods, Ruckus, and The Faceless. Have a listen to Matriarchs‘ Deadman lyric video to hear how they bring a unique brand of punk influenced metal.
