When Midnight Strikes! (Pivotal)
by Scott Hefflon

Death metal with hints of Swedish melodic metal, but far too straightforward death to be confused with Dark Tranquillity or In Flames or anyone else. Brutal, gloriously-produced, and catchy in their straightforward way, but not dynamic enough for me, a fan of melody, breakdowns, flourishes, perhaps a few harmonies or angelic counterpart to break up all the grrr. This is the kinda band you love on a comp, then discover the whole album is the exact same as the one great song that hooked you.

This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
