SHIN 2 SHIN: Self-titled: LP

May 20, 2014

Shin 2 Shin is essentially Aaron Melnick’s (of Integrity fame) four-years-in-the-making solo project, featuring his incredibly distinct approach to metallic hardcore accompanied by different vocalists. It’s impossible not to compare any of Melnick’s output to his time in Integrity, as his style and tone are so uniquely his own, and such is the case here. The songs are terrific, the performances classic Melnick, but I’m left to wonder how much better this would be with Dwid up front. Still though, killer stuff.
