The title track bursts out of the gates with high-octane riffing and solos that harken to Cause of Death-era Obituary, while followup "Is It Me?" starts up equally furiously before transitioning into a much more measured hardcore swing and then into a colossal final breakdown. The Biohazard-referencing closer "Primal Discipline" follows suit, wrapping up the set with an equally menacing stretch of chugging that's punctuated by gang vocals in the verses.
Sensory Link to Pain serves as proof that Primal Rite are among the most promising new bands in the hardcore landscape, and that they keep evolving with each release. (Revelation)
