Austin, Texas' Expander evoke old-school Voivod with their logo, their techno-punk song titles and even the artwork on Endless Computer, the band's debut album. They play hard and fast Thrash that features a lot of punk vocal lines and songwriting which further links them to the Québécois legends but the similarities stop after that. The singer employs a monotonous scream and the guitars have an artificial buzz, almost like they are laden with too many effects, resulting in a sound that rapidly got on my nerves. The song "Authority Spire" has a Black Metal vibe with the guitars shifting over to a tremolo picked sound and the vocalist going with a raspier delivery but for the most part Endless Computer is an endless chore of annoying sounds. Pass.
