Alienatör: Pariahs

In great murky noise and in a wicked culmination of sludge and noise rock, Alienatör gift us with their thirteen track record titled Pariahs. Within this release you are to find nothing else but abrasive in your face music that does a great job of snapping your head back before you realize what’s going on. From beginning to end Alienatör offers up a truly murky, chunky yet noise filled sound that tears at your ear drums, but in the best possible way. Each track is a madhouse of artery stopping, head banging sludge and noise rock that you cannot simply turn away from.

Once you hit play you hear a twenty second static filled intro complete with news clips regarding drug use, and you quickly realize what you have stumbled in to. As soon as the intro fades, you immediately become hit with buzzing murky riffs that are backed by hard hitting drums and manic vocals that are screamed at you from every angle. The first full track you come across titled “False Hope” is a hard hitting, in your face offering that hits you immediately and ultimately traps you within the vortex of chaos that Alienatör produces here. Each track that follows the intro is a chaotic sludge filled wall that storms at you from every direction never giving you a chance to escape the noisy, sludge filled blitzkrieg that Alienatör ushers forth.

Through and through Pariahs is a record that gets right underneath your skin from the very beginning. This record does a great job of manifesting itself in your brain from the get go having you thrash around and bang your head until your brain bruises. Each track is a force of sludge filled reckoning that is incredibly potent and explosive. These thirteen tracks are volatile and explosive as each one shoots straight out of your speakers to provide you with a truly whiplash inducing listen that you will not soon forget. Bombastic and neck bending from the beginning to the end, Pariahs never stops its noise riddled rampage until the final scorching note crosses the boundaries of your speakers.

With all of that said, each track really is great and something to behold. The musicianship is great, the vocals are varied and solid, the production is clean and the song writing is good as well and that all comes together to create something that is wholly entertaining and unforgettable. Each of the thirteen tracks that are harbored within the chaotic walls of Pariahs are great as each one is just as good as the last. If you are looking for something unique, new, heavy, entertaining and head banging, you don’t have to look much further than Pariahs.

TripleMurder: Pre-Meditated

Never to be put in a box or pigeon holed, TripleMurder uses their heavy eclectic sound to produce variety and diversity. There is a lot that TripleMurder has to offer within their six track EP titled Pre-Meditated. From groove filled riffs, to heavy break downs, to searing solos, to varied vocals and more, TripleMurder packs this EP to the bursting point. Through six offerings, Pre-Meditated provides a wickedly heavy yet entirely memorable and entertaining listen. The one problem that you will run in to is that this EP is not nearly long enough, but that is a purely selfish complaint. Through the twenty plus minute run time you are treated to cohesive and very solid metal all the way through that will sure please the gnarled ears of death metal, deathcore and fans beyond those genres.

TripleMurder wastes zero time getting you acclimated and acquainted to their cohesive metallic sound as they set in immediately as soon as you press play. There is no intro to warm you up as TripleMurder thrusts you head first into their brand of head caving metal as they feed you chunky riffs that are backed by ripping grit filled vocals that pierce the wall of tumultuous drumming and shredding riffs. The meshing of death metal and deathcore works well here as TripleMurder sew the two heavy genres together to create an overall cohesive, groove filled and technical sound that is hard to deny. Each track is a well written storm of death that comes out swinging aiming to engulf you in all of its fury.

It isn’t just the grooves, or the killer vocals or the solid drum work, but it is also the breakdowns that tie each track together well too. The breakdowns are used sparingly throughout Pre-Meditated making them have more impact on each track. Not only are they used sparingly, but they aren’t your typical chugging, unearthly down tuned break downs either. Each one is neck bending heavy of course, but they seem to have more substance to them and each one is different from the last making each one unique. This all adds to the variety and diversity that TripleMurder utilizes to their immense benefit.

Through and through, Pre-Meditated is a very solid release. One that brings the heavy in droves, but it also is incredibly memorable and entertaining. Each track is just as good as the last and TripleMurder really show off their song writing abilities through each track. The six offerings present here are unique, heavy, varied, well constructed and much more which ultimately creates an incredibly great listening experience. As mentioned above, the only complaint is that this isn’t long enough but that’s just purely selfish.

TripleMurder has created something here with their debut that is flat out great through and through and really nothing else needs to be said other than that.

Pre-Meditated will be released September 20. You can pre-order this EP here and here.
