Review: 2X4 – MCMLII

Review by Adriana.

The album of interest this week is 2X4’s newest release MCMLII. 2X4 is a four ­piece metalcore act from Oklahoma.

Every instrument and vocals were presented with clarity, leaving nothing out. Production done as well as this makes everything sound more full and complete. The first three songs flowed into each other very well without an awkward pause or transition. The first song, “Volition”, starts with a heavy, headbanging riff.

One guitarist plays a nice fuzzy yet crunchy riff while the other guitarist plays sweet sustaining high notes that seem to reverberate and it makes your mind drift away, just as Aversions Crown songs do.
