Hail Metal people! I’m back again. Can I get an Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhhh?
I’ve got a quicky today, because, as always, I’m in over my head. It’s by suggestion of Rufio: Denial Machine.
This Chicago-based outfit arose in 2009 and completed its first record in 2010, followed in the same year by an EP. Encyclopaedia Metallum lists them as Groove Metal / Metalcore, but I’m more inclined to give them a little Progressive label as well. I dug up a couple of songs for you to enjoy.
Let’s start with the closing song of their album, which is self-titled. Song’s called Worms of the Earth and is a pleasurable mix of Metalcore, Melodeath and something more classic. Can’t really say what it’s based on, but I get this mild swirl of an 80’s Metal feel somehow. Loads of clean vocals, but some proper throat-mangling too, fierce riffing and sharp lead guitar work. I could get used to this!
The other song I pulled in is from the band’s EP, The Gainsaying of Korah. This song carries the title Silver Tongue Devil and is much more inclined to be Metalcore. Pretty typical stuff, actually, but well executed and with guitars that are particularly appealing. There’s a definite richness and fullness to the tone. Rock away!
Denial Machine can be found on Facebook. Pay them a visit if you liked what you heard.
