Format: Audio CD
from the moment the first track begins this record promises to keep you entertained. every song has its own personality, though this is a metal/grind/hardcore hybrid in its truest form. though there isn't much variation in terms of jumping from genre to genre, there is quite a bit of range jumping from sub-genre to sub-genre. there is no formula to any of the tracks on this record, and to be honest it's a breath of fresh air. each track goes through several different phases ranging from pummeling blast beats to insanely heavy beatdowns all the way to the occasional clean guitar melodic interlude. dont get me wrong, there isn't any "Singing" or anything on this record, its just pure intensity for the most part. i also enjoy the fact that there is an amazing amount of technicality but nothing is too forced, the drumming is almost perfect. he can use polyrhythms quite well, but can quickly go back to tight syncopation with crunching guitars. the highlight of the album to me is the vocals, everything from high pitched screams to some of the most solid deep growls i have heard in a while. and Guy's lyrics also offer something a little different than everything else out there, discussing everything from video games and our superficial culture to "guys playing the sensitivity card to get some" discussed in "L Formation." there are also the typical bloody and death lyrics, but they aren't over the top, in fact they are placed almost perfectly and remain quite coherent throughout the record. this record is a great alternative to much of the boring, overrated music found in the grindcore, hardcore, and death metal genres. get this record if you are interested in listening to something that offers a more intelligent approach to heavy music.

The red chord are one of my favourite bands right now. This is just straight up brutal mayhem. This album is so heavy in hurts my head. The vocals are amazing, some awesome screams and growls. The music is very technical, with some insane drumming. As well as this there are some brutal breakdowns to keep you interested. This cd has it all. Breakdowns, mayhem and original lyrics.

Watch out. 15 Jan. 2003
By Reed Rosenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There's something in the water in Boston and this year The Red Chord have proved it by following up last year's Boston hardcore/metal masterpieces (Converge's Jane Doe and American Nightmare's Background Music) with a tech metal album that is both accessible and fun yet still innovative. Combining the best aspects of death metal, grind, and hardcore, The Red Chord deliver a disemboweling nine song, thirty minute time signature juggling expose. Incomprehensibly fast and original drumming, technical riffing, and some of the best Godzilla impressions in years are all present. The Red Chord have raised the bar for technical metal on their first release, an astounding feat to say the least. Metalheads, expect to hear much more from this little known band in the future.

Grind on this, freaks! 16 Sept. 2004
By Total Scumbag - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the fastest most insane pieces of grindcore fury I have ever heard. The thing that seperates this band from all the other grind bands is this band's songs are a little bit longer and they incorporate brutal death vocals (this band is not goregrind though). Also they throw in a few hardcore elements, and this band is really popular in the hardcore scene. Don't be fooled though this isn't tough guy hardcore, screamo, or anything like that, this is more like grind-metal played by hardcore kids. There isn't that many breakdowns on this CD but when they do break down it sounds unbelievable due to the overall fast intense pace of the rest of the cd. I look forward to future releases by this band, and their future looks good, as they just got signed to Metal Blade records. This is highly recommended for fans of Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Converge, Premonitions of War, On Broken Wings, or anyone who loves fast intense music that makes you want to punch people in the face.

Hahey, that hurts my ears. 18 July 2003
By D. M. Dugdall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ok, far too many people dish out 5 star ratings to everything they've ever seen, this is stupid, and annoying, and doesn't allow people reading the reviews to get any idea of the rating system.
4 stars is the most i've ever given in a review before...4 stars=superior to others in it's Genre.
This Cd isn't just something you put on because you like a specific song, this cd is a musical experience, like sitting down to watch a movie, you don't select your favourite scene before you've experience the whole show.
It explodes into riff chaos, drummers arms flailing around, vocal chords get smashed against a wall and dragged along a grater. This is brutal, after the initial explosion, rythm takes control, and pushes forward into the first song. Each song explodes and cascades across a jagged metal landscape, but they indulge into real diversity within and inbetween each song, calming down for ambient brakes and tense build ups, un-predictable, with no hooks, just good, honest, metal.
Words are rubbish, they're someone elses opinion, i recommend the cd, support smaller bands.

Technical Brilliance, Avoiding cliche at the same time. 14 Mar. 2006
By The J-Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Red Chord can be described as Grindcore/Metal. Although usually mostly grindcore influenced. Also have some Jazz influenced parts, like The Dillinger Escape Plan.

To an untrained ear, It may sound like just noise with spastic drumming, and guitar all over the place, but that is in a sense what Grindcore is. This album is extremely technical, and you will find yourself amazed at their brilliance in their songwriting.

This album (To me) is better than the follow-up, Clients. It contains more memorable moments, and variety, where as Clients is bland compared to "Fused Together..."

Any, some of the people who reviewed this album, are not very educated when it comes to bands such as The Red Chord. They are NOT Hardcore, or Death Metal. IF you are into stuff like that, Forget buying this album.

Nihilist:

Begins with a straightforward grindcore passage, progresses into a more "hardcore" sounding chord progression. (Thats for the red chord, and is by no means "hardcore") Anyway, pretty fast technical song. This Re-release also contains a Live version of this song, which I highly recommend, just because the way they start it out.

"Hi, were the Red Chord, this next songs called..." Immediately starts the song.

Ends with an awesome Jazz chord progression.

That Certain Special Ugly:

Kind of minor sounding guitar harmonies begin the song following a sample of a spinning top. Progresses into more "red chord" style grindcore. Pretty metal influenced song.

Catalepsy:

One of my favorites of this album. Very metal influenced with alot of pinch harmonics. Guy, the vocalist does alot of Low vocals, which is his specialty. The ending is amazing, if any point this album gets close to death metal, its the end of this song. Contains a BREAKDOWN, amazingly. The Red Chord is the only band that can manage to play a "breakdown" and not bore you to death with a simple ass monotonus formula.

Like A Train Through A Pidgeon:

Probably one of my favorite song titles of all time. Once again, this song is genre defying, and cannot be labeled as one specific genre. Contains one of the high points of the album where Guy growls the line "Am I dying or just waking up."

He Was Stretching, And Then He Climbed Up There:

This song is, for the most part an interlude/transition to the next song, clocking around 2 minutes. Contains hardly any drums, mostly creepy sounding guitars, and vocal effects, Guy uses the effect "bitcrusher" I believe. Provides a good transition into the next song.

Breed The Cancer:

Continues where "he was stretching.." leaves off, slowly begins a transition into more grindcore and blastbeats. Then transitions into a metal sounding riff. Has great lyrics.

L Formation:

Probably the albums most technical song. Guitar riffs/drumbeats change every few seconds. At around 30 seconds it goes into one of the only melodic pieces on the albums. No singing however, but the guitar is clean and melodic, its a very nice change from the rest of the album. The guitar then does something very cool, A prog Jazz transition into the next riff, while still clean, and a blastbeat. You just have to hear it to see how brilliant it is.

Dreaming In Dog Years:

Ahh, probably the most "popular" song from this record... thats not saying much however. Very metal influenced in some parts, and very grindcore in some other parts. This is one of the Red Chord's most famous live songs, where the end turns into a huge dogpile, "It's not gonna be alright, It's not gonna be okay."

This song is amazing when seen live.

Sixteen Bit Fingerprint:

I never got into this song, but It's a good song nonetheless. Serves as a good ending to the record, although I wished that it would've ended more dramatically, In my opinion, Dreaming In Dog Years would've ended it better. This song does it well though, with some clean Jazz parts Almost like "L Formation" Ends with more "bitcrusher" sounding effects, most likely made with vocals.

Overall, If your into technical metal influenced grindcore, this album is for you. One of the best of its kind, and probably hard to top by even The Red Chord themselves, "Clients" wasn't as good.

Ferocious and jaw-dropping 21 Jun. 2006
By Jeremy Brackeen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought The Red Chord's debut album "Fused Together in Revolving Doors" at Best Buy for $11.99 when I was down in Eau Claire, and I really like it alot. Personally I find this album alot better than their follow up "Clients". FTIRD is a pure ferocious blistering technical grindcore/death metal assault that will just beat you to a bloody pulp. They also have hardcore influences as well, but they are far from being hardcore or metalcore. This album is chock full of deadly vocals, ferocious technical grinding guitar riffs, vicious breakdowns, and sick intense drumming. Guy Kozowyk's growling vocals are just brutal and deadly as hell. Guitarists Mike McKenzie (who does backing vocals) and Kevin Rampelberg lay down a barrage of monster grinding riffs that slice and dice through your skin like a razorblade. Adam Wentworth's bass lines are good and very deep. Mike Justian's drumming is absolutely sick and intense. Plenty of vicious piledriving blast beats and nasty double bass throughout.

The first song "Nihilist" opens the album with a barrage of grinding guitars, jackhammering blast beats, and Guy's sick growling vocals come into play without warning. This song is very heavy and intense throughout, and it's my favorite song on the album. The second track "That Certain Special Ugly" is more mid tempo with more hypnotic riffs, while the next two tracks "Catalepsy" and "Like a Train Through a Pigeon" come back at you fast with more rampaging drums and speeding guitars. Other standouts including "L Formation" and "Dreaming in Dog Years" (which is one of the band's most popular songs) keep the sheer ferocious aggression going.

The songs and the ratings:

1. Nihilist - 5/5 (Favorite song)

2. That Certain Special Ugly - 5/5

3. Catalepsy - 5/5

4. Like a Train Through a Pigeon - 5/5

5. He Was Stretching, And Then He Climbed Up There - 4/5

6. Breed The Cancer - 5/5

7. L Formation - 5/5

8. Dreaming in Dog Years - 5/5

9. Sixteen Bit Fingerprint - 5/5

10. Jar Full of Bunny Parts (Bonus demo) - 5/5

11. Better Judgement (Bonus demo) - 5/5

Overall this album is an absolute must have for any fan of The Red Chord, metal, grindcore, death metal, or just extreme heavy music in general. If you're new to this band, I suggest you start off with this album first. Anyways I hope you'll all enjoy it just like I'am right now. STAY EXTREME!! STAY HEAVY!! STAY METAL!!

LONG LIVE THE RED CHORD!!
