SURVIVAL: Shayda: Cassette

Real heavy metal guitar leads all throughout this record. The first track really threw me and I wasn’t sure whether I should take it seriously. After a few listens, “Living with Depression” is just a little off from the tone of the rest of this tape, but still finds a way to mix in. In retrospect, I think that song would be a better fit later on in the album. From the looks of the band’s bandcamp page, they have put out a wealth of material and have been in the game a long time. After a few listens, I started to really get into it, though I’m just not a big metal fan in general. If you are though, these guys shred. Check it out.
