Album Review: End Up Falling - 4 Song Demo

End Up Falling
4-Song Demo

End Up Falling is a 5-member metalcore/pop metal band from Los Angeles, California. When I listened to these 4 songs, my first impression was Chase Long Beach (vocals only) mixed with Atreyu. I agree, that is a different mixture but it keeps it interesting.  

EUF are very much newcomers to the scene but I hear and see tremendous potential for this band. The recordings aren't that bad and musically, it's pretty good. It was hard to pick my favorite song but after listening to all the songs, my pick would be Hope's Downfall. It starts off with some Atreyu style screams and about 50 seconds into it, Kristen comes in with her pop rock style singing. Some people don't care for male screams/female singing but I love the dynamic and with a little bit more practice and higher quality recordings, EUF will be touring right along Eyes Set To Kill, Kittie, In This Moment among many others.

I recommend each and every one of you to check this group out and help support them in anyway possible whether it's supporting them in future merch sales or checking them out on tour or even just telling your friends about them.


Album Review: The Beat Conception - Beginning Of The End Vol. 1

Let me just say this, at first I was pretty skeptical about reviewing this album because I usually don't get into instrumentals but damn was I ever wrong!!!

Let me get you introduced to The Beat Conception. Its a group made up of three members: Shah Syed AKA Skywalk3r (born in Toronto, raised in Detroit), Donnie Odom AKA Mozaic (Grand Rapids, Michigan) and Emmett Mcfarland AKA Angered Rebel (Cincinnati, Ohio).

It starts off with an Intro by Angered Rebel that is amazing! I'm not familiar with the sample used but it's hilarious and it has a jazz overtone and some beats towards the end. The next song is Rocket (Jupiter's Eye) by Angered Rebel which is the track that caught my attention immediately! The only way I can describe this track is jazz infused hip hop at its finest. Track three is called Masterpiece by Mosaic and the title describes it beautifully. It's definitely a soundtrack instrumental that everyone will love. Track four is called Smoke 'Em by Skywalk3r and let me tell you, hip hop artists are going to be drooling over these beats.

I figured I would give you all a sneak peak of the album by telling you about the first half because everyone needs to purchase it and really feel what I'm talking about. Go buy the digital album here and you even get a special bonus track (you have to buy it in order to see what it is). If I could pick two words to describe this album, it would be "smooth transitions". Every track is unique from the next but they all fit together perfectly. I can't wait for vol. 2 and every other one they come out with.

Phoenix, Arizona

Howitzer is a 3-member metal behemoth barreling out of Phoenix, Arizona. Since forming in 2000, Jeremy, Matt and Beau have sharpened their skills and honed their hatred to put together the strongest metal release of 2008, the aptly titled “Rise To Power”. Welcome to the next level of aggression. Howitzer has taken their disgust for the repetitive and has crafted their own brand of pure heavy metal. They don’t play by the rules, they don’t follow formulas, and they don’t listen to anybody – they simply put their money where their mouth is. Their backgrounds are as diverse as jazz, punk, classic rock, blues, and old school metal come together to bring you a modern day Frankenstein of bone crushing metal. These guys write heavy music for heavy people for a heavy scene. Their following is growing by the hour so you better catch them now before they are bigger than you can handle. Check them out on the road and pick up their albums and bang your heads until your head falls off.

Heavy, chaotic, melodic, and just plain crazy are some of the words used to describe the group’s music. They take the concept of a live show and instead of making it a performance, they create an experience. Currently, I, Apparatus has 3 EP’s (I, Apparatus EP, This is Your Derailment EP and Iscariot EP) and also a 7” (Entitlement) and will be releasing their debut full length this summer (Ebola and the Botanist).

Unto Acheron is a Melodic Death Metal/Metalcore quintet rocking out of Dallas, Texas. They are noted for their Greek mythology-based image which is why they are coined “Greekcore”. The band originally started out in August of 2009 by guitarist Brett and was called Beneath Haides in order to channel his heavy Greek influence. It started out as a traditional metalcore band and quickly evolved in deathcore and that’s when the name changed to Unto Acheron. They began to self-record what would become their full-length self-titled debut album. Old songs were upgraded and new genre-destroying songs were made for their collection of songs, and their musical prowess brought the attention of Ling Chi Records. You can pick up their album on Itunes, Shockhound and at any of their shows. Keep a look out for another release in the future and check them out when they roll through your town.

Album Review: Neurotic November - Neurotic November EP

Neurotic November
Neurotic November EP
Self Released

This is why I love being apart of the underground!!! I get to jam out to insanity like Hialeah, Florida’s very own Neurotic November with their 2008 self-titled EP. This 4-track EP has everything from sweet breakdowns to glass breaking screams followed by deep growls and then some. It starts off with the first track, How You Gonna Leave Fat Boy High And Dry Like That, which is probably my favorite song off of this album. It has everything I’m looking for in a metal/hardcore band. I especially love that a couple times at the end, it makes you believe the song is over and then punches you in the face. My other favorite is track four, The Emo Winter Break of 96 which definitely has a hint of early For the Fallen Dreams and that’s a huge compliment. Not only do I love this album, but I love the album tracks!!! You can’t go wrong with a track called Johnny Cash... What We Do To You (You Got Cheap Sex, We Got Terror). So, go check out their facebook page and download this album from them and help support Neurotic November by purchasing future albums and hitting them up on any tours.

Album Review: Broken Torment - Broken Torment EP

Broken Torment
Broken Torment EP
Self Released

Broken Torment is a 5-member metal band from Wednesbury, England. Turning hard hitting Djent sounds into heavy melodic riffs and also interbreeding some 90’s style progressive metal and 00’s style groove metal into the mix. It was hard to write this review since all I wanted to do was listen to this EP, especially since it’s only 4 songs, which is the only negative I have about this EP. Out of the 4 songs, the one that I fell in love with was Phantoms. It’s brutal, it’s anger, it’s deep. The production on the song is a little rough but maybe that’s why I like it. Broken Torment has been touring up and down the England coast with this release and I’m hoping to see them in the states sometime in the near future. But for now, go check out their Facebook page and download Broken Torment EP for free. No one can pass up that great gift, unless you’re a rock so download it and fall in love like I did.

Genre Spotlight: Psychobilly/Horror Punk/Rockabilly

Pretty much, every one that knows me that the number one genre that is dearest to my heart is psychobilly.
