Hailing from the apologetic country that is Canada (no offense), Unicron were a British Columbia-based experimental metal outfit who didn't last long, though upon hearing their first and only EP titled Powerbomb, I can sort of see why this band didn't properly take off. Featuring an album cover that's about as colorful and kooky as what's actually on the recording, Unicron's only release doesn't have much in the way of personality nor replay value. The four songs recall pre-Hail Mary Iwrestledabearonce, but slightly more cohesive; the word "cohesive" is being used loosely, by the by. Although the quartet boasted some potential here and there - and Powerbomb can be good, dirty fun if spastic savagery tickles your fancy - Unicron were by no means noteworthy in the least. The vocals shared between Courtney LaPlante and bassist Kenneth Walker are pretty dry-sounding and bog the overall quality of this EP down.

A very fun and unique release. Not only is this EP amazing, but their live show is even better.

I Wish there was a higher rating available for this EP...You know once in a while you think to yourself that everything has been done, and then you hear a band that just blows you out of the water and shatters everything you knew about music and life in general. Unicron did that for me here. Combining elements of Brutally heavy deathcore with Extremely poppy hooks and soaring melody from female singer/screamer Courtney Laplante, Unicron has found struck something special. I know that in ten years when this band is huge we will look back an realize how important this EP really was for music

Wow, the album art resembles one's diarrhea while tripping on the finest shrooms on this planet. This band has very capable members on the instruments, with the only possible problem being the screams from the vocalist, only because you may not be used to screams from a...woman!? Regardless, it's a solid release for fans of deathcore with plenty of wank in it.
