4.0 out of 5 stars ...the next modern metal greats?... 23 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
It seems a long time ago now, but Trigger The Bloodshed used to be a deathcore band. But they (wisely) realised the teeny tiny pigeonhole they'd squeezed into and made the move from ultra-extreme to a milder form of extremism, that of more traditional death metal.

They've been near the front of the brutal metal pack pretty much since their inception in 2006, with earlier albums "Purgation" and "The Great Depression" earning them legions of shirtless young boys happy to get all sweaty, rubbing up against one another. 'Cos its metal, right! To be fair, they only really started to work for me when, post "Purgation", they, um, purged themselves of their original vocalist, bringing in Johnny Burgan, who added a whole new dimension to their sound.

And that sound has made some further leaps and bounds on "Degenerate". It sounds absolutely amazing, so a large round of applause to Mark Daghorn, who having earned his chops with Orange Goblin and Cradle Of Filth seems to be making it his business to sort out a younger generation of metallers. The opening track, 'A Vision Showing Nothing' is quite possibly their best tune yet, utterly savage, yet instrumentally and aurally, a brilliantly put together song.

They've also learned how to slow things down, and at times, they almost manage to achieve a Slayer, circa "South Of Heaven" vibe. Which is quite remarkable, if ultimately unattainable. C.mon, it's Slayer, dammit! But when you listen to some of the monstrous, groovy riffing that's going on, it's nigh on impossible not to join in. This is a great album, by far their best, and if they can keep progressing like this, then Trigger The Bloodshed could end up as modern metal greats.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's hooky, it's brutal, it'll scare the crap out of your non-metal friends, and it might even wash the dishes for you. 24 May 2010
By A Customer - Published on
Trigger the Bloodshed may be the best technical death metal band around when it comes to infectious brutality. Yes, they're fast and yes, they're technical. Unlike other insanely fast technical death metal bands (looking at you, Brain Drill), there's an undercurrent of melody and/or harmony. It's a dissonant and breakneck-paced melody, but it's there. I liken it to the disaffecting mournful drone that accompanies most deathcore acts' chunkier material, just quicker and more technical.

Their last effort, The Great Depression, was filled with said melodious moments. There was a choral hook that belied the machine-like palm muting and staccato double bass that made me want to jump off the couch and break something. That trend continues with Degenerate. Once again, the title track has one of the better hooky undercurrents of the album. This great opening helps solidify in the listener that this is top quality stuff and that a full listen is required.

The band's speed should be of note, as it nears Brain Drill-esque madness without making the listener take the music in bits and pieces. That's the beauty of this album. You can listen from start to finish without needing a break from the technical wizardy. Though the riffs are very complicated and would require a great bit of talent to learn to play well, they never get stale or retread other riffs.

The production is top notch and much better than The Great Depression's. The mix is crisp and clear, every instrument clearly audible. The guitars have that nice trem-shaking hum and saw-like edge that allows some absolutely brutal chugs but doesn't deter from the higher-noted trills, fills, and solos. Vocally, lead singer Jonny Burgan has an understandable growl that, at least at times, relies too much on his hands cupping the mic (think Suicide Silence's vocalist's style, and you'll be bang on). The drumming is absolutely insane, but that's to be expected of former Aborted drummer Dan Wilding. The man can play drums with anyone, except maybe Gene Hoglan.

If you like tech death and want something you can sink your teeth into, this record is for you. It's hooky, it's brutal, it'll scare the crap out of your non-metal friends, and it might even wash the dishes for you. For fans of the band and of the genre, it's a must buy.
5.0 out of 5 stars Easily crushes their past releases!!!! 1 Aug 2010

This is TTB's best release, without question. Their last 2 albums were marred by poor production and not very memorable songs. This album literally destroys their last 2 cds to a pulp. Taking the time to also put out a great cd cover and packaging to round out a very professional release. The production on this lifts this band to new heights, in my opinion. No more muddy instruments, this sucker punches you in the face and does not let up at all. They redo Whited Sepulcher, which crushes the original. One of this yr's best!!!
