There’s no posturing, no “image before music” as would have been the case in the old days, just 12 tracks of immense class that will stand the test of time and be the benchmark against which other bands will be measured in the future.
The surprises however come from what else the duo can achieve together and on ‘Worthwhile’ we get a heartfelt, slower, piano driven number that is no less powerful but could easily become a soundtrack entry for many many movies over the next few years.
This is a mere taster only of what these bands have to offer and I would implore listeners to check out the albums in their entirety, some have several releases already under their belts, all fantastic and absolutely deserving of a place in any decent record collection.
Drawing influence from bands such as ‘Fucked Up’, ‘Leatherface’ and ‘Protest The Hero’ to name but a few, this band, with their incredible work ethic and ferocious live performances.
I can honestly say that this release is a must listen for deathcore fans and should be held as a standard within an already very competitive but niche sound. To their credit, ‘Beyond Deviation 400 (400 Vocalist World Record Track)’ is a thoughtfully crafted and superbly produced record.
If the earth could speak, it would probably be disappointed in us as a species right now. We don’t think about it, we think about ourselves first. This album presents a world that is, according to Gary, “disillusioned and heartbroken it is now fighting back.
Chock full of driving anthems and softer moments that will garner them an army of fans, the guests are also supplemented with one Travis Barker, best known as the drummer for Blink-182, who makes a handful of appearances as well.
I’m going to rate this one a 10. It’s the best rock album I’ve heard in a while. Buy it!
Sweet Oblivion is a project between former Queensryche singer, Geoff Tate and Italian guitarist, Simone Mularoni. Ryche fans who are wanting something from Tate that is reminiscent of classic Queensryche will like this. There are several songs that would have easily fit on Rage For Order, and Promised Land. For example, the first track, Once Again One Sin is one. An intense synth intro, with the style of harmony guitar and backup vocals that Ryche fans fell in love with. And, his voice sounds great.
