Via Vengeance's songs sound gritty, dense, and calculated. The rhythms are snappy and solid, with seamless, simple timing changes that often lead into even simpler guitar interludes, but show attention to composition nonetheless. Not that Via Vengeance is machinistic prog rock by any stretch of the imagination. This is raw, hard stuff, oozing with slow, booming backbeats, and bludgeoned by stoner rock power chords. Songs like "Bad Treat" and "Burned" seep with sludgy, doom-laden sounds, while tracks like "Only Strong Survive" and "Black Lung" are a bit more linear, marching forward on sharp snare beats and gruff vocals.
