3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad not great..., 6 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Of Vengeance and Violence (Audio CD)
Also rans in the time of nu-metal Dry Kill Logic have definitely improved with age and this is a far more mature offering than The Darker Side of Nonsense.

They have progressed to something resembling Machine head meets Shadows Fall I know that sounds great but they fall just short of the mark. Yes the riffs are pretty good, as are some of the songs on here but the vocals become a bit samey and it lacks the hooky breakdowns that made them a bit special in the first place (listen to rot or paper tiger to hear what I mean).

The addition of some guitar solos is obviously an attempt to bring them inline with most of what is going on in Metal right now and to some extent suceeds, but my main problem with this album is the workman like drumming. There is some double kick work that is sometimes impressive but it just feels like the drummer is on autopilot and he is not in the same league as Brann dailor (Mastodon),or Jason Bittner (Shadows Fall).

Pretty standard fare all in all obviuosly they are making an effort to distance themselves from their past but they have yet to find something of their own to offer and in a world dominated by inventive and progressive metal bands it just doesnt cut it..

Try instead Shadows Fall The War Within, Machine Head Burn My Eyes or Unearth The Oncoming Storm
