SLAVIOUR Inside Out/SPV (2007)

Aggressive new album from this trio. Opener 'Origin' is a touch nu/alternative, with funky heavy/soft sections, and a great trad metal solo before further bursts of funk like metal vocals. Extreme grunge? Well perhaps.

On 'Shatter' the guitar continues in the same way, and the vocals sound slightly processed.

'Swept Away' is heavier, the vocals almost rapping over the heavy bassy riffs.

'Altar' opens with a more intricate guitar line, it’s more indie metal. Occasional strumming with heavy riff bursts and upper mid range vocals as used by guitar pop bands.

Closing track 'Red Road' checks in at nearly 9 minutes, and opens with the kind of programming you’d find on Planet P Project before the riffs burst in. Touches of Nirvana but more extreme and less grunge.

Based on first impressions, as I really couldn’t return to this album under any circumstances. Comes over as good for this more extreme end but nothing special.
