is a so-called Nu-Metal band and “The Volume of Self” is their
debut album. Nu-Metal is usually NOT
my cup of tea but this album is bearable… actually it is a tad
more than bearable.
not familiar with the names of most Nu-Metal bands but to me they
sound like Mudvayne,
Park and Limp Bizkit… among others. At least to me… but what the hell do I
know about Nu-Metal…?
get 12 tracks with both aggressive and clean vocals and some of the
songs are surprisingly catchy. Not that Twin Method will change my
world, but they are a pleasant surprise.
me Twin Method is at best
when they slow down a bit to a more depressive, melancholic,
atmospheric style. But when they go aggressive again… I simply
lose interest in them.
more complaint; - The first 6 songs are okay but then they begin to
bore me a tad. The rest of the songs sound very much the same to me
and are not above average.
this is just your basic Nu-Metal CD. Nothing new under the sun,
however a bearable release. Last, but not least; the production is
great and crystal clear but I will close with the statement that
Nu-Metal generally still is not my thing, but Twin Method is… compared to what I’ve heard so far from this
sub-genre…a pleasant surprise.
