AMPERE: Like Shadows: CD

It’s taking every ounce of nerve I have to not listen to the little David Spade inside my head going, “Yeah I like Ampere. But I liked them better when they were called Orchid.” I do admit, however, that Ampere are a bit more structured and deliver more of the kind of hailstorm-of-bricks heaviness that is crucial when playing such emotive and chaotic hardcore. It’s over before you know it and most songs don’t last any longer than a minute. It’s good, it really is. Maybe in time I’ll come around and listen to more Ampere.
