Those Who Lie Beneath
An Awakening
Style: Metalcore
Release date: March 26th 2010

You can not accuse these Americans of lacking brutal energy. No, Sir. Over the waves they fly with tremendous speed.

In fact, they have such a hard time letting go of the gas that it becomes a tad too intense for my liking. When they've hammered through the first two tracks, the third, Through His Eyes, finally shows a little variation - with the only problem that it's not a very well-wrought tune. This is an issue with a majority of the album, by the way.

On it goes until the last track, Still Breathing. It's an instrumental and by far the coolest song of the album as it strays completely from the rest. Would have been interesting to hear singer Jamie's voice on this song - just to find he can do anything but scream his lungs out.

Next, please.
