Undivided sounds very much like it was released in 2007, not so much in that it sounds old but that it sounds very nostalgic. All in all, it is solid most of the way through and this band has a promising future if they stay true to their core sound. If you like dropped chords, chunky minor tones, and fist pumping heavy rock, this is an EP worth checking out.
Through “Hellbent”, Extinction Level Event is showing they are ready to take on the world, three basses at a time. Extinction Level Event is currently working on new music, and plan to have another release in the spring. You can listen to “Hellbent” on streaming services such as Spotify, Bandcamp, and Youtube. You can also find them on social media @elebandofficial.
There are a few debut albums out there that could sit comfortable in a Top Twenty and Benthos should be on one somewhere. It would be no surprise to start seeing their name pop up as openers for bands like Orange Goblin, Electric Wizard, and Mastodon; maybe even the famed Corrosion of Conformity or Clutch.
Solipsis has a feel to it that only Purest of Pain can provide. These songs feel like they are made for the stage, which is something that some albums miss when they are recorded. This album is thought out, polished, and makes a great addition to the music collection of any death metal enthusiast.
Illusions of Grandeur hail from the city of Lancaster, PA, which historically is known for modest Amish culture, sprawling farms and quiet back roads. Their debut album, Songs of the Siren, released on Toil Records and is a lot of wonderful things, none of them modest.
The Darkness in Devotion borrows liberally from both alternative and indie rock, and it does it with skill. Other Son has created an album that is, in places, reminiscent of Coheed & Cambria, Fall Out Boy, and The Killers. Between that and its relatable emotional content, it is sure to find an audience not only in Colorado but across the United States.
Taste The Blood, like its predecessor, was also recorded, mixed and mastered by King. Currie stated that they’re “proud of the record. It’s clearly more of our aggressive and relentless materiel that we’ve written and our fans would agree.” It’s sure to please fans who enjoy both the classic and modern thrash metal, stylized from acts such as Testament, Death Angel, Kreator, Overkill and Exodus.
