SATYRASIS: Creation of Failure : CD

Decent metal from Michigan here. The music is solid and the playing is tight. Matt Trzcinski’s solo in the song “Stench of the Earth” is a rager. The vocals are mixed weird to me. They sound flat, despite the singer’s growly hardcore punk style. I could see these guys playing at the Relax Bar. When they hit their stride, they do quite well; the songs are dynamic and steeped in energy. The guitarists are really good, and have the classic metal sound. That alone is worth checking these guys out for. They hit some flat spots here and there, but on the whole, not bad.
