ANOTHER KIND OF DEATH-- No Signal CD
This is the debut full-length album by Spanish band Another Kind of Death. Spanning 26 minutes this album dishes out awesome crushing technical metalcore/grind that taps into a weird evilness through the singers monstrous gutteral rasp and the band's frequent descents into apocalyptic/cosmic noise-dirges, while throwing in some killer melodic post-hardcore hooks (imagine a brutally heavy BOTCH/CONVERGE hybrid suddenly taking a left turn into TEXAS IS THE REASON-esque rock), somber piano melodies, post-rock dynamics, and other cool weirdness.
Fans of stuff like CONVERGE, MAJORITY RULE, and AS THE SUN SETS would dig this, as the riffs are mega heavy and infected with that kind of keening high-end guitar assault...but ANOTHER KIND OF DEATH definitely has their own unique, bent take on the chaotic metalcore sound. Crackling electronic drones rise to the surface, stop-on-a-dime drumming nails each song to the floor, spastic splattery noise freakouts achive liftoff, and some awesome unexpected production tricks (tape dropouts, found sounds spliced into the songs, swampy sound washouts,etc).
