So what exactly does Today Is The Day sound like? The answer is: Nothing like the other bands that plays your usual grindcore/hardcore. 1997's Temple Of The Morning Star takes off with "The Man Who Loves to Hurt Himself", which after a sample of a country song, is followed by electronics that are full of hatred, and ultimately becomes heavy and hateful that tests your own will as to how much you can handle. Songs like "Crutch" and "Root of All Evil" is so freaking heavy, it's almost frightening. Throughout the whole unnerving experience, satanic rituals, chanting, and distorted vocals are superbly meshed with an reasonable amount of samples and melodic riffs. If that wasn't enough, there's even a cover of Black Sabbath's "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" just to add to the unpredictability.
