Everything Burns
Style: Modern Melodeath
Release date: February 22nd 2010

That's not a thing I want to hear in the morning when my kids wake me up. No, I'm not talking about the music they play. This English five-piece signed with Rising Records to release their debut 'Home'. First time listening I was rather impressed and normally a record is getting more appreciation when listened to it more often. But that did not happen with this one, and I can't really explain why.


Everything Burns can be placed between all the modern metalbands nowadays which mix deathmetal with metalcore, melody, some grunts and lots of clean singing parts. Most of the songs have a kind of catchiness in them and are not bad. The drums are tight and the aggressive parts are aggressive indeed. The clean singing is kind of average and could improve. Further there isn't a lot to carp on, but to me it is getting a bit bored after a while.  Perhaps I have listened to too many bands lately that play this style. Certainly I don't want to write this CD completely off, that would not be fair to them. What these Brits do is o.k. and I think there must be enough metalfans that like them. I think this record just came in at the wrong moment.


For all modern metalfans who like grunts combined with clean singing.
