I was extremely impresed with the ferocious nature of lock-up like others I was n't sure how it would be. What I heard was a tough guitar sound and an unstoppable heaviness.
What drew me most to Lock-up is my interest in Nick Barker he is truly the best drummer I have ever heard brilliant kick work, a great departure from hid Cradle' work more ferocious no sublty, which he will no doubt show on the new Dimmu'album. not as many great fills but from what I can gather his performance was basically improv. Neverthless the album rivalls 'Panzer division Marduk' for heaviness.
