HARDWARES

SEROCS

The Next

(Comatose Music)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 8.0

Right away, I can tell that I can get behind the open, clanking-bass production sound, one that makes me think of GORGUTS and older-era CRYPTOPSY, two references that also spill over into this Mexican band's sound, a supremely technical take on death metal that reigns supreme, although you're left wishing you could grab on to some of this barbed-wire madness and bring home something to remember instead of a bunch of scars that just make you think, 'Yeah, that was insane and brutal... but what was it?' So it goes with tech-death, though, the overall sounds and feeling winning over songwriting, the complaint as old as insane blasting, frantic fret work, killer psycho-guy drumming and maniacal time signature changes, all of which SEROCS lay down with considerable authority here. And, you know, the songwriting is almost there: the riff nearing the end of 'The Variable' is almost memorable, and the mid-point of 'Weakness Fed The Fear' just might get stuck in my head when I'm walking down the road at some point in the next couple of days (update: nope). But once unglued from that need to hear a goddamn song, this band impresses with their angular take on tech-death, one that approaches things from a much more raw place than most sterile tech-death, the feeling way more human and likeable than most of their peers, again, reaching into that Cryptopsy and Gorguts terrain in a pretty big way, and with a great amount of success. And although the lineup is a bit of a confusing situation (started as a one-man project, now a full band with members spread out all over the place), the bassist for Monstrosity is in the house, and that's definitely something we can get behind, just like the smart half-hour run time.
