Scars - SOIL

It doesn't seem all that long ago that Chicago's SOIL were struggling to get themselves heard amid a sea of LIMP BIZKIT and KORN wannabes whose musical output was deemed far more “marketable” than the southern rock-tinged sounds practiced by the Illinois quintet. All that changed when a radio programmer in Orlando, Florida, ...

Mankind - FACTORY 81

Not much to say here. Like RELATIVE ASH, SLAVES ON DOPE and PRIMER 55, Detroit's FACTORY 81 are a faceless, generic nu-metal band who possess neither the songwriting ability nor the ingenuity to compete with the big boys, coming across instead like a bad copy of the kind of DEFTONES / LIMP BIZKIT / KORN-inspired ...

self-titled - FULL DEVIL JACKET

At a time when most of the up-and-coming heavy rock acts appear to be derived from the KORN / LIMP BIZKIT school of songwriting, it is truly refreshing to come across a band that is modern sounding yet doesn't succumb to the idea that one must incoprorate hip hop infuences into its style in order ...

Arguably the UK's best hope of contributing a worthy homegrown act to the current hip hop/metal explosion, ONE MINUTE SILENCE have already done a fair bit of touring Stateside, where they've only had limited commercial success thus far. Dubbed by some a "more aggressive RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE", OMS' sophomore effort basically picks up where ...

Reinventing the Steel - PANTERA

Unsurprisingly, there is very little "reinventing" going on here—PANTERA are content to happily regurgitate every single good idea they've had since their much-acclaimed Vulgar Display of Power release (arguably their finest effort to date), and to their credit, they do it extremely well. On the first couple of listens, much of this come across as ...

Our Time with You - RELATIVE ASH

Much like labelmates PRIMER 55, Chicago's RELATIVE ASH are a second-rate act who were snapped up in an attempt to capitalize on the current popularity of the so-called "pimprock" / rapcore movement, and their full-length debut is a generic, derivative affair that brings to mind early DEFTONES (circa Adrenaline). Produced more than adequately by Steve ...
