Sound — 3
I saw these guys about a month ago. I don't know why they were even on the bill. They do NOTHING that hasn't been done by any other deathcore band. Guitars tuned down to a or b. And they have 3 guitar players! One would think that having 3 would open up possibilities for creativeness but they skipped out on that option. They lack technicality in every way, despite a few arpeggios they throw in the mix. They rely on breakdowns as their backbone in every song. Breakdowns are good in moderation, not every 30 seconds of a song. Its the same ones over and over. Some are slowed down at times which does nothing to revive an already dying band. And get a new name.
Lyrics — 3
The screams are pretty high pitch and corny. His growls are weak at times but strong at others. The lyrics are pretty much what you get from most religious bashing singers/writers. Nothing too fancy or new in the content. His vocal style, when pulled off right, do go with the music pretty well I have to say. But once again its not near enough to really gain any credibility.
Overall Impression — 3
They are a spawn of Oceano, Whitechapel, and Suicide Silence that was born with severe mutations and should have been aborted at birth. Aborted, a band they could from btw. If I had to pick a track that I could tolerate it would be Elysium, only bc it caught me off guard and was a little different than the rest. I think it's safe to say that there is nothing in this album a die hard death metal fan would appreciate. Its all cookie cutter stuff made to appeal their own kind, scene kids. Nothing they do is any different than any other deathcore band. Disagree? Then I'd take another listen and have some hearing tests done.
