Next review: » Attitude Force - Surviving In A Hell
Released: 2010, n/a
Georgia’s new-comers Attila (one of many) style themselves as “party death-metal”, which is an interesting sounding hybrid to be sure. It has the potential to be awesomely hilarious or spectacularly awful – I’d be happy with either. Sadly, it’s neither. RAGE is chock full of typical metalcore/deathcore riffs that are played competently but go nowhere, and yawn-inducing vocals that try incredibly hard to be over the top, but just come off as amateurish. That goes for both the clean vocals and the growls by the way.
Lyrically its all joke-filled nonsense, which isn’t surprising given the band’s made up genre. This neither detracts nor adds to the music mind you – like everything else on this album, the lyrics are just kind of there.
Most real metal fans will rightly pass this off as hipster bullshit, and I can’t fault them for that. More lenient listeners may be able to get past the initial impressions, but unfortunately they won’t find much worth beyond the face value either.
