|September '21 Music Discovery|
|1||Fall In Archaea|
Decided to start with some metalcore/deathcore/math to kick it off. These guys really surprised me. I was worried the album was going to be too formulaic and predictable, but there were more than a few times that it pleasantly surprised me. Female vocals on a song, lyrics I could understand sometimes, unexpected riffs etc. Worth listening to again for sure.
Really wanted to like this more. Was recommend to me by a friend. The thrash + hardcore combo sometimes hit good, but for the vast majority of the album just started to sound monotonous. Didn't necessarily dislike the album, but given the buzz I had heard about it I expected more.
|3||Fall In Archaea|
Went back to these guys because I was itching for more. Very solid EP, songs are more straightforward and there's less surprises than on their full-length, but the brutality and heaviness had more of a presence. Sounds like Ion Dissonance with some prog-inspired moments sliced in there. Great stuff.
|4||Black Matter Device|
Very solid mathcore/metalcore album. Vocal delivery and intensity are what stood out to me the most, but there are plenty of chunky riffs and small moments in songs that kept me engaged. What I'd imagine if Keith Buckley did vocals for early Dillinger Escape Plan.
You Mark Me the Deepest
Decided to listen to a just-released album instead of an older one for a change. I was impressed with the way the album had songs that sounded ominous and scary while simultaneously having pretty textures and synths going on. There aren't a lot of "loud" moments on the album, but the way the songs develop and change kept my attention.
