Sliver - Thine Eyes Bleed - In The Wake Of Separation (CD, Album)
The finale of the album, 'Regret Your Fear,' is absolutely breathtaking. From the frenetic riffage at the beginning to the hardcore sound of the the chorus. The most stunning part though, occurs when about halfway into the Sliver - Thine Eyes Bleed - In The Wake Of Separation (CD a breakdown begins, but soaring above the crazy beats is an insane solo which I think actually passes back and forth between the guitars!
The way that the solo syncs up with the breakdown is just nuts. All in all, this is a very aggresive record with a very good sound. I would recommend this to pretty much any metal head, but especially fans of The Black Dahlia Murder, Himsa, Chimaira, and Lamb of God, as the breakdownish metal has the same feel. It may be the highlight of the song. Throughout the entire album, there are a good number of distortion effects which add a not-so-clean element to the album in a Sliver - Thine Eyes Bleed - In The Wake Of Separation (CD good way allowing a fiercer attitude at times than a clean, polished sound would have provided.
Another song with a particularly "kick you in the face" surprise is 'And Since Forgotten. The combination of the two is enough to make any metal head throw the goat. Unfortunately, very few records are flawless, and one of the only aspects of this album which did not impress was the last bit of 'Live to Die,' where melodic vocals try to take over and do a fairly poor job of attempting to do so.
The following track though, 'Corpse You Up' is a very bloodthirsty-sounding song with a fair bit of groove and great guitar work mini solos and breakdowns abound. The Sliver - Thine Eyes Bleed - In The Wake Of Separation (CD of the album has a similar sound, but each song remains able to captivate the listener with plenty of new sounds and aspects of metal added to the album.
However, given a little more experience and time to develop their compositional chops, there's always hope for improvement Album) future efforts. And, for what it's worth, this is a whole lot better than Kittie!
