Postmortem Promises
On Broken Foundations
Style: Heavy Deathcore
Release date: March 17th 2010

Well... this CD called íOn Broken Foundationsí from British band POSTMORTEM PROMISES is a hard thing for me to swallow. We are talking heavy modern death metal, or deathcore if you like, here with both growls and aggressive vocals.


The guitars are heavy and massive and the guitarists are able to come up with some quite interesting riffs here and there but sadly with no real impact. And the then we have the vocals... and I must admit that Iíve heard way better growlers out there and the ďmodern-way-of-doing-itĒ annoys the hell out of me. I feel that the vocals are a bit too upfront so the music is drowning a bit.


Most of the songs are okay but itís not a CD that I want to listen to over and over again. There are better deathcore bands out there in my humble opinion.


But Iím sure that there are takers for this release so donít hesitate to check it out if deathcore with heavy and massive guitars is your thing.
