Review: Scalpel – Methods to Delusion

0001020561_10

From Massachusetts, Scalpel are releasing what they call psychedelic death metal, in the form of their album Methods to Delusion, to be released on the 25th of July. Aimed at fans of Death and Suffocation, we are told to expect an old-school death metal sound with a lot of experimentation and very few boundaries. The whole album is actually very inventive and something to be respected at a live show. However the album is also very under-produced, meaning that a lot is left to the imagination as to how good it could have sounded with the right editing.

Review: Born Of Osiris – The Eternal Reign

1200x630bb

For those of you that have been living under a rock, Born of Osiris is a widely known progressive deathcore/djent band. Their latest EP ‘The Eternal Reign’ is a re-release of their first EP ‘The New Reign’ with a bonus song. Now before I begin, I must note that for many years, I couldn’t stand the sound and style that is Born of Osiris. I respected the theoretically simple, yet practically challenging trademark that makes Djent what it is; breakdowns in ever-changing time signatures. But in particular, I did not like Born of Osiris for the plain fact that, at the time, I just didn’t get it… there’s no better way to describe it… however, having spent the year (so far) scouting on my tippy-toes for the latest releases, I have come to realize that 2017 has felt like a year where bands either get better than before, or worse than ever. This being the case, I decided to forget everything I thought I knew about this band, and start all over again.

Review: Trinity Site – After The Sun

Trinity-Site-After-the-Sun-2017

From Germany, Trinity Site delivers to us a melodic yet futuristic form of death metal unlike any other melo-death act today. This is a band that could very well be among the ranks of bands like Dark Tranquility, In Flames, and Carcass. So melodic death metal, what makes this one so special? A listener might ask. Well to begin, we hear of many new bands and artists claiming to have matured as musicians and inflicting upon us a sound that will allegedly revolutionize the genre as far as they’re concerned. Unsurprisingly, many of these up-and-comers fail to back it up and end up looking very foolish. In this case however, this is a band whose bio promised me n othing, and didn’t need to, for their music seized my complete and undivided attention.
