5.0 out of 5 stars awsome heavy hardcore metal album ,awesome guitar., 18 Nov. 2004
This review is from: The Oncoming Storm (Audio CD)
Unearth represent a new breed of metal-influenced hardcore - combining jaw-dropping power and speed with a vast catalogue of influences. While the band doesn't precisely fit into the genre-label of 'New American Metal', it obviously draws from similar roots - relentless power, mid-tempo thrash riffs with pounding bass and brutal breakdowns. In effect, Unearth represents the unison of Gothenburg, New American Metal and hardcore.
What separates Unearth from the likes of Killswitch Engage, Lamb Of God and Shadows Fall is their flexibility. Guitarists Ken Susi and Buz McGrath both utilize seven string guitars, which allows them to incorporate passages of blistering European thrash alongside pummeling breakdowns and arse-kicking double bass accents on a signature seven string crunch. The result is a dynamic, aggressive and punishing style which is able to overcome the monotony of most 'New American Metal.'
Vocalist Trevor Phipps provides a standout performance on The Oncoming Storm - his thick hardcore rasp given the added dynamics of clean vocals alongside blistering screams courtesy of the production of Adam D (renown for his work with Killswitch Engage). Phipps' lyrics are also a cut above most - choosing to aggressively voice his political views (as opposed to resorting to the lovesick crooning of Killswitch), and judging from the content of "Black Hearts Now Reign" (an open reference to none other than G.W.) Phipps is none too happy with the current state of America.

5.0 out of 5 stars New awesome band!!!!, 1 Oct. 2004
I give this album 5 starts because the album its self is genius.sadly the only down point i have is there are no quick lead guitar riffs like avenged sevenfold, my chemical romance and thrice but this is not a bad thing. the vocals of the band are execptional and perfectly fitting the music and mood. there is screaming emo in most songs (shouting basicaly) which gives the sound a heavier more enphasised effect.the screaming is perfectly ballanced though (trust me). every track on this album is memorable and different. the lyrics to every song is like a poem !!!! the guys from underoath have put a lot of emotion into this !!!! my personal favourite is track 8. all of these tracks have great choruses!!!
anyway just buy it .... BUT some of the songs may get boring if listened to constantly. just said that if your short for money and if your not sure .. (i also recommend avenged sevenfold and my chemical romance to you aswell you wont be dissapointed(im talking of the albums waking the fallen and mcr 's three cheers for sweet revenge).

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome...get it, 1 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Element Eighty (Audio CD)
Mercury, the eightieth element on the periodic table, is the heaviest metal known to man--quite fitting to a band that plays heavy metal music. Element Eighty, Texas natives and together since ninth-grade, is one of many bands influenced by Metallica. Try to guess how. It has something to do with the periodic table.
For a four-piece, Element Eighty's depth falls nowhere short of amazing. There is obviously some musicianship in each of these four men. Most importantly, the four rockers do not function solo--they unite as a group and play off the other's energy.
Showing all the depth in the world, the Texas headbangers create a sound that is hard to compare. Yes, Element Eighty falls into the genre of metal, but the abundant collection of catchy vocal hooks and the Southern guitar whining reinforce another sound; a softer, melodic side to the four rockers.
Guitarist Matt Woods gives you one of the missing elements in today's bands, the guitar solo. Each song left room for small, but well-worth guitar solo that left most of the crowd wanting more.
Don't get me wrong, Element Eighty is not the best band in the world. These guys are still at the bottom of the totem pole; however, they will be working their way up. For the current king-of-the-hill bands, you better watch out. And for the heavy metal fans, if you are looking for some catchy vocal and guitar hooks, but still relying on the heaviness to soothe your ears, you better check out Element Eighty.

5.0 out of 5 stars pure exelence, 25 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Four Wall Blackmail (Audio CD)
They say that opposites attract. In the case of this great new CD by Dead Poetic opposites sound great together. Take the soft melodies and music of popular emo-rock bands like Jimmy Eat World, Dashboard Confessional, and Boxcar Racer and mix it with a background scream ala of any hardcore band and you have the recipe for a sound that is unique and pleasant to the ears. I really like this CD and recommend it to fans of emo-rock.
