This is the second album by Italian Death Metal band The Juliet Massacre.
This is modern Brutal Death Metal/Deathcore
The vocals consist of pig squeals, deathgrunts, screaming and even the odd semi-clean.
The songs blend blasting brutality with breakdowns and the odd melodic passage. While it’s modern and energetic, unlike a lot of Deathcore bands The Juliet Massacre remember the Death Metal side of the Deathcore equation.
This will probably be a bit too “-core” for a lot of pure Death Metal fans, which is a shame as there’s a decent amount of brutality to be had here. The songs don’t let up and the album supplies the requisite hit of aggression.
I enjoyed this. With a slightly stronger sound and a little tightening up in the songwriting department The Juliet Massacre could easily ascend to the big leagues. Until then, I’ll still be listening to this again in the future.
For fans of Despised Icon, All Shall Perish, The Black Dahlia Murder and Job for a Cowboy.
