ALASKAN: The Weak & the Wounded: 12″ EP

Heavy and drawn-out modern metal that seems to have influences by bands like Kylesa and From Ashes Rise, but with some late 1990s emo introspection parts in the songs. The vocals are dry in sound and delivery. It’s as though they’re really trying to give the songs more power by screaming their heads off. But despite all the things they do in the songs, from the time changes, movie samples, and all that, the songs don’t have any real grabbing power. They tend to drone on and on, building up this wall of sound, and it goes nowhere that you would want to follow as a listener.
