HARDWARES

FOREVER'S NIGHT

Brimstone

(Independent)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 6.5

I love how the intro slowly ticks away and you just have no idea what you're getting into if all you're going by is the album title and band name. Is this going to sound like RAINBOW? FREEDOM CALL? SHADOWS FALL? Well, more like SOILWORK meets PANTERA down at the local bar. When the first tune, 'Under The Midnight Moon', really kicks in, it actually reminds me more of obscure screaming hardcore like SNAPCASE or UNBROKEN, further confounding matters, in a nice way. Unfortunately, at other times, like 'Chaos From A Standpoint', the nu-metal influence seeps in, and that Pantera reference becomes post-Pantera, and things start to fall apart a bit. But don't give up hope: 'Nonexistence' brings some amazing retrofied soloing to the forefront, proving that this Atlanta-based band knows how to bring the right amount of hard rock into their metal. 'Shutter Speed' rocks like mid-era IN FLAMES mixed with, again, that strange breed of American hardcore that really has no place being talked about in a review that mentioned Pantera more than once. And late in the album, we get highlight cut 'Tomorrow's Burden', which is frantic, interesting, and totally original sounding. So, fun, talented, the kind of band that opens for every decent metal band when they roll through town, no doubt. But those clean vocals? Brutal, totally not appropriate and they pack no punch, sounding like they leaked in from a different recording studio or something. I mean, almost completely across the board, clean vocals have worn out their welcome in metal; let's hope indie bands like this take the lead and dump 'em and move on to something more fresh.
