Track Review: “D34D2M3” by Spoiler

It’s no secret that since they burst onto the scene and initiated first contact [obligatory Alien reference there, nice ~ Ed] with us, we’ve reviewed each single that Essex Nu-Metalcore aggressors Spoiler have waterfall released since 2020 and brought you a run of exclusive interviews with them.
