GIZMACHI The Imbuing (2005)
I must be getting old, I know when within two minutes of an album I get a
headache and the urge to throw a CD out of my loft window.
Gizmachi started out well, opener, The Answer, starts off with some very inspired Alice In Chains like harmonies,
before launching into a barrage of noise, some aweful shouting vocals and
melody-less and pointless guitar riffing. I like black metal and death metal,
bands heavier and more extreme than Gizmachi, but this is metalcore that I
can definitely live without.
When I listen to any type of music, there has to be some sort of rhythmic
melody, either in the music or the vocals.
Gizmachi are lacking sorely in both. This is mostly noise, horrible noise
that I have no desire ever to hear again.
I wouldn't even give this to my worst enemy, if George Bush is looking for
the next secret weapon to bring the enemies of the USA to their knees,
Gizmachi played at high volume would make anyone surrender if only to make
the music stop.
Forty six minutes of the biggest pile of rubbish I have had to review in a
longtime. How this could appeal to anyone is beyond me.
