Hi. I would like to share the first recording of my band, the self-released EP "Perfect Black Hurt".
It's three tracks mixing Alternative Metal, Mathcore and Thrash Metal.
We are influenced by bands like Botch, Converge, Coalesce, Norma Jean, but also Tool, Mastodon, Slayer, Sepultura, Deftones, Metallica...

You can stream or download for free here:


Our band was formed on 2013, in São Paulo, Brazil.

I hope you enjoy.

Musically this is pretty cool for me
You're pretty tight and cool riffs.
I think the growl vocals work best, clean vocals need some work.

Musically speaking, I enjoyed the songs. Good and heavy-sounding riffs, good rhythmic work. I liked a lot your work on Black Womb: good guitar leads, great and effective riffs, several distinctive sections and an overall tight and powerful sound. The riffs in Hurthrone were great as well; powerful and precise.

My main concerns will be on the vocals, however. In my opinion, they need a lot of work, especially the clean lines. I felt them constrained and insecure (maybe nervousness/lack of practice?). Also, he needs a lot of practicing using a metronome with the tracks. I heard the vocals being unaccurate on the beats some times especially at the beginning of them; I know metal is not (necessarily) about pristine perfection but those unaccuracies were really noticeable so I'd suggest to work on it for future recordings

Overall, good work. Work on those details and you'll surely make it!

Agreed with the two people above me: musically it is good and you guys play very well. Love that bass solo! It's just the clean vocals that need a little work. The growls sound fine. I am so loving the cover art! May I know who the artist is behind this excellent artwork?
