The review reflects Sunez’ own passion for the artform, setting the background scene in an introduction which ends

Now across borders and over waters there are the UK Triple Darkness crew of countercultural lyricists that ignite with insight. Their newest member, Iron Braydz strips it all down, keeps the collected fam enlisted as soldiers in verse trenches and gives an EP of concentrated explosions.

The review works through the 10 tracks produced by Iron Braydz, Ringz of Saturn, Agor & Daniel Taylor and featuring Sean Price, Prince Po, Triple Darkness, Kyza, Skriblah, Phat Kat & DJ Shortee Blitz, and summarizes :

As part of one of the great crews of importance, sharing lyrics of relevance and fiery inspiration worldwide, Triple Darkness’ Iron Braydz is a war chief cutting heads off devils with no limitation and the deeper understanding the more you listen….With Verbal Swardz, we at least know the real brothers out in the UK are thriving in their own league.

One of the UK’s most highly rated lyricists for a number of years, both at home & abroad and together with the rest of his Triple Darkness crew, the article reflects “True hip-hop in the UK is reserved for underground scenes and hidden-away locales. There’s not many who can take the style to the mainstream and retain integrity – Tinie who? – but if Braydz continues the way he does, there’s gonna be a helluva lot of people clamouring to get involved.
