NIGHTBREED: Immortality through Ashes: CDEP

Aug 29, 2006

Sounds like a toned-down version of Unsane. Sounds like a belligerent drunk popping valium (synesthesia rules!). Slower, infectious songs that have a malicious droning quality that nonetheless fails to get dull. The possible negative result of this, though, is that the songs tend to bleed together and sound the same. That really didn’t bother me, however, and became less of a problem the more that I listened to it. The six songs wound up working as a whole, much in the same dark, brooding fashion of the movements of a Chopin opus for a cello quartet.
