Set Before Us: Enigmas

 

 Once more, the world is bathed in chaos and disorder. Once more, we are assaulted by a Metal band. Once more, they kick the stuffing out of peaceful society and unleash pure rage and anger in all directions. This is Enigmas, the latest offering from the powerful band that is Set Before Us.
