What happens when an old Deathcore band shifts away from that genre and actually plays Death Metal? What you get in the case of Trigger the Bloodshed is a very talented Death Metal band. Believe me when I say that they did get rid of all their Deathcore influence. Why do I give it such a low score then? Well it is hard for me to explain. They know how to write good songs and they make them flow very well. But the main problem is that the songs are just not memorable.

The band members are talented songwriters and every song flows together. But in the end, all I can really remember is the tremolo picking in the first song and the breakdown at the end of the second song. Don't get me wrong now, this is a solid release and I would say it is worth listening to as there are still is some good thing to be heard. But this album is pretty much in the middle of the pack. The fast paced playing of all instruments blends together and makes it pretty much one single song going on throughout the album. One good song, but not one song I want to listen to for 34 minutes.

This is a Technical Death Metal band that dropped all of their Deathcore influence to be recognized by the metal community. I can say they gained props from me for doing this, but more work is needed to make more grabs within the music and to make everything not sound like just one song. With the talent within the band, surely in the future they can make a release that will please many Death Metal fans. But at this time they are right in the middle of the road.
