CONTRIVE - THE INFERNAL DIALOGUE
Metal To Infinity
Another new band but this one is mixed
by Devin Townsend. Not that I am the biggest fan of Townsend but itís
remarkable these guys managed to make Townsend mixing their record. These guys
seem to be from Australia and have released an album before which I have never
heard. This band from down under had the opportunity to support bigger bands in
Talking about their music I can be
pretty short. This is a mixture between Thrash and some kind of Metalcore. The
music has their melodic moments but I miss something in it. Is it the lack of
emotions, the fact that the songs donít take me by the throat? Is it the fact
the vocals are so boring? I donít really know but for some reason I stayed
cold after hearing this one.
That doesnít mean you shouldnít give this one a try
if you like the heavier stuff. There are possibilities but the band needs a
better song writer, someone whoís able to put his heart into the music.
