Embrace The Fall
Napalm Records

The back of this CD described this as thrash metal. Not really. It's more metalcore with thrash elements. However, it sounds like a clone of several other bands from this scene with not anything that really stands out to distinguish them from the fold. Gut-wrenching screaming vocals, heavy down-tuned riffs, etc... very formulistic. Still, it's heavy as hell, the band is solid and the production is well done which all counts for something I guess. Like every style of music there are a lot of bands that sound similar to each other, but a lot of the metalcore stuff was not my favorite anyway. However, it's not bad and if you like this style of metal then it's right up your alley.
