Tragedy Essential

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (6 Votes)

There must be something going on here that I don't get. Call it "Americore" I guess. Kilfast are so generic, they should come in a white box with 'noise' stenciled on the top. Apparently these dudes are doing ok, getting stage space with the likes of Arch Enemy and Hate Eternal. But I certainly didn't take any pleasure in listening to this, and I cannot imagine wanting any contact with people who would. This is extremely boring rat-tat-tat grindy death metal with stereotypical cat-vomit vocals and nothing resembling a hook or a riff anywhere. It seems no mystery why the US underground sucks so bad when this is the best people can come up with for a 'metal' band. Couldn't we just have a bunch of Helloween clones like everyone else? Why do we have to be different? But nooooo, what we get is deathy hardcore junk that would put me to sleep if I didn't find it so annoying. It gets one point for track 5, a nice piano bit that bears no resemblance to the rest of the CD, unfortunately. If this is the future of metal, kil me faster, please.
