Conscious Control – Feed The Machine [REVIEW]

Genre(s): Melodic Death Metal
Conscious Control’s debut EP, Feed The Machine, has five songs and roughly 20 or so minutes of listening materials. The EP isn’t officially released as of this writing, however, it will be released on February 21, 2014 at their CD release show. Therefore, the songs listed on their Soundcloud are just bits of the full EP, to get a taste of it before purchasing it. Conscious control is a melodic death metal band that hails from Melbourne, Australia.
The first song for review is “Apex.” The pace of the song is upbeat, but not overly fast paced. The instrumentals sound very melodic for majority of the song, except there are some breaks here and there. The vocals that are used is high screams and low screams, the former being the main vocal style used in the song. I like the use of the high screams being the main vocal style, because Scott’s highs sound better than his lows. But, his lows are good too and are well placed in the song.
The second and final song for review is “Prisoner.” When this song is compared to the previous song reviewed, the pace is a bit slower and is nowhere near as fast paced. Instrumentally, it is still very melodic, but with the slower pace, the listener can really hear all the melodic elements and sounds used throughout the song. In the introduction and near the middle of the song, there are purely instrumentals used. The former is a build-up for the actual song, and the latter is a guitar solo. The vocals are roughly the same as “Apex” as well, but Scott doesn’t use low screams too much for this song. Like stated before, Scott’s high screams sound great and fit well with Conscious Control’s sound.
Feed The Machine is a melodic death metal album that provides some awesome instrumentals and fitting vocals. Some of the songs are a bit faster and heavier as others, but that provides a good mix of slow and fast songs for the listener. This EP is Concious Control’s first EP, and it sets the pace for the band really well. I highly recommend you checking out Feed The Machine, and picking up the album when it goes up to purchase. It’s some really good melodic death metal.

Score: 4.5/5
