Structures -- This is a great grindcore band, wading into the waters of mathcore, from Toronto, Canada. On this album they are back with a tour de force sound. A lot of good groove riffs, with chromatic blast passages on the guitar. The guest vocal tracks almost have an "Against Me" sound, very nicely done! This band is primarily a grindcore band that ventures into the realm of mathcore, but not going so far into it that you get lost. A lot of mathcore bands are too extreme and harder to listen to, this band seems to blend the element just right.
The recording, a strong effort from Structures, well recorded, drums and vocals sound great. The only parts that need a bit of addressing are the heavily scooped mids on the guitars, a lot of heavier acts suffer from this. With detuned 7-string guitars, the heavy mid scoop tends to make them sound either muddy or too thin on lead passages. Also, the bass playing is buried into the muddy mix, so you have no idea what the bass player is playing, other then exactly the main root note of the chords.
