Glass Casket hail from North Carolina, which other metalcore acts such as Between The Buried And Me, Beloved, Hopesfall are from. and in my opinion, Glass Casket are alot like Between the buried and me and DEP. the music changes so fast from crazy riffs, to thrash, to the hardcore breakdowns, to death metal. and to the bass fans out there, the bass guitar is prominant thoughout the album as well. when i first listened to this album, i got goosebumps. and thats no poo.
Adam has a great screaming vocal that is just ungodly, but its not screaming all the time, so dont think the vocals get boring. because he switches the screaming vocal with in my opinion the best death growl i have ever heard. but thats not all, adam even has melodic voice as well. which is nice to have the change from every now and then. the vocals reminds me of Mike Patton (Faith no more, Mr. Bungle, DEP ) to Maurizio Iacono ( Kataklysm ).
The drumming is awesome as well. Blake plays with some intesity. blast beats from hell during the death metal parts. and quickly switches to for the chaotic metalcore, to the breakdowns of hardcore. at times it seems he is having a seizure, from hitting the hi-hat and the snare so **** fast.
I would say listen to this album more than once at first, because you will find something new that you might now of heard upon the first listen.
If you are a fan of metalcore, this is a must. and i think that fans of death metal would embrace this as well. it just has that quality that someone looks for in a album. very talented artists that shine through on this release. Glass Casket are on Abacus Records, which is part of the Century Media family.
