Through all the tough times and the member changes these guys have stuck with it and it finally looks like it is paying off.
Unclean is a combination of tracks from their 2 previous self released titles The Eleventh and Unclean. This album totally defines the sound of Rorschach Test and puts them in a place all of their own. With ear deafing tracks such as Monster and Satan as well as Sex which is a cover of a song by 80's band Berlin as well as melodic melodies like Lament.
