Optimist features members of End Of Days and is even more metal than their previous band. As they like to describe themselves, the band is 'driven by the pure energy of raw hardcore and the relentless aggression of destroying old school death metal'. I think it's pretty accurate description, and since they've been doing their thing for some time now, you can be sure everything from song-writing to execution is top notch. Don't believe me?
