Don’t have the full length yet, but the two singles I have “officially” and the other couple online releases show some promise, I mean, after their last album it’s tough to get worse… one of these new ones is very happy metal core type stuff… a very “everyone jump up and down” then do melodic chorus type thing. The other is a bit more post clayman sounding and shows promise again.

Mark Morton
Spinefarm Records
Well, this guy… from Lamb of God decided to do a solo album, his signature guitar sound is present but with different singers, so far, one track with Chester from Linkin Park… has his vox, but with a heavier edge musically, also Alissa from Arch Enemy, Randy, Chuck Billy, Myles Kennedy and a bunch of who’s who performing other stuff aside from guitars… cool stuff.

Humans Are Broken

All female (except the drummer) blackened death metal… brutal, harsh, but with a deathy groove… great stuff.

We all know what CoB is all about… melodic guitars with keyboards and a wall of sound… these two singles (so far) keep that flag flying. I always liked what this band does and like the new stuff here too. So heavy, yet catchy and melodic.
