TOTEM SKIN: Still Waters Run Deep: LP

Epic crustcore from Sweden. This is a reissue that originally came out in 2014. I’m surprised the demand for this was high enough to warrant the need to bring it back into print. Musically, it’s okay for the genre. They tip over into a sort of metal emo field at times, and the vocals tend to be overwrought and overly emotional, reminding me of the terrible “screamo” era of the late ‘90s. I guess they’re passionate about their music, but I’m not interested in hearing it again. –Matt Average (Adagio 830, adagio830.de)
