Maybe with a different vocalist...
June 14, 2018
I like some of the things that Mike Patton brings to this project, but overall I don't think he was the best choice for this style. His shrieky vocals don't sound great, and his shouty vocals aren't too convincing here. He sounds best on the slower songs, in my opinion.
But the main problem here is the mix. Quietest hardcore album ever? And where is the guitar? Buried under the drums, I suppose. Speaking of drums: Dave Lombardo is easily the highlight of this record, and almost enough reason to buy it if you're on the fence.
