Review: Pentarium – Zwischenwelt

Boy do I have a treat for you this week with the album Zwischenwelt. Zwischenwelt is from German “melodic death metal” band Pentarium. This album is very interesting, read about it below you won’t regret it too much. Or maybe you will, but you will at least get to check out a good band in the process. To give you a sense of what’s to come: it is less like melodic death metal and more like older metalcore.

Beneath The Remains – Demo [REVIEW]

Genre(s): Groove/Melodic Metalcore
Beneath The Remains’ three track demo was released earlier this year (or sometime late 2013, there is no release date I can find). The demo consists of three songs, “Pray for Pain,” “Angels & Demons,” and “Straight Out of Hell.” This demo reminds of how metalcore use to do sound like, before the overuse of guitar chugging, unneeded clean singing, random breakdowns, etc.
Beneath The Remains sticks to an old school metalcore type of sound with the mix of groove metal. The song that portrays the most groove and old school type of metalcore sound is “Pray for Pain.” The song has the best audio quality out of the three. “Angels & Demons” has a bit more guitar chugging it, and “Straight Out of Hell” has a lot more riffs than the other two songs, also it has a guitar solo near the end of the song. They do keep to some guitar chugging as well in the song too. Overall, Beneath The Remains’ demo is solid and their upcoming EP, I expect, to be good. So, keep on the lookout for the band!Score: 3.5/5
