Trigger The Bloodshed - The Great Depression
Top customer reviews
I was expecting something along the lines of Suffocation but this is a tad more intricate. Insanely fast with a minimal amount of slow interludes, a great deal of concentration is required to catch everything that's going on. My one criticism is in the album production. Personally, I feel the guitars are a bit to high up in the mix & conversely, the drums too low. When music's played at this speed and is this technical, it can become a bit difficult to follow without clear drums to mark out the time signatures.
That said, once you've got the song structures mapped, this is a hugely rewarding listen. The guitar work is absolutely phenomenal, most people would develop RSI trying to perform what these guys do! The breakneck speed does become a little monotonous when listening to the album in one hit but that doesn't detract from the astounding skill on display from start to finish.
I know from personal experience how protective us fans are of our favourite bands so i don't wanna upset any die hard Trigger fans. I am new to the band and these are my initial impressions. This is a good album that is fabulously technical but will require your utmost attention!
Fast, Heavy and quite chaotic. It is an exhilarating ride from start to finish and to get the most from this album you have to play it from start to finish a few times before you fully penetrate it, after that though you can just sit back and enjoy the furious, glorious ride.
The Great Depression: The album starts in a whirlwind of instruments that threaten to upend whatever room you happen to be listening to this in. The pace is pretty chaotic, we are even treated to a brief slowdown in the track which is presumably to help us catch our breath and even in this sub three minute space it is very welcome. Great introduction to the album
Warbound: The pace is just as quick here but the vocals seem to take the lead more on this track, they seem to be calling in the apocalypse and are almost as unrelenting as the drums. The end of the track slows down quite a bit in a nice use of dynamics although the riffs probably could be more interesting.
Sanctuary of the Wretched: The vocals combined with the drums provide a nice out of control wheel over rail type
feel which continues for most of the track. The vocals have a bounce here that makes them a nice hook. The guitars smash out some pointy riffs that could take your eyes out.
The Scourging Impurity: Furiously spiky there must be some very shredded fingertips when playing this song.
The Dead World: There's a lot more light and dark on this track the speeds still there but occasionally we get a bit of time to dwell, which is nice but a bit short lived, used more as bookends to the speed.
I: The obligatory atmospheric track is nothing special; in fact it's very dull, it is however required after the speedy ear pounding of the first half of the album.
Contemporary Perception Narcotics: Back into speed and complexity land; the drums rage away the guitars spike and flail and the vocals growl away.
Desiccate Earth: This track start off at a more considered pace and I think it would be interesting to see how a slow track would turn out from Trigger the Bloodshed. The accelerator pedal is quickly shoved on, so we don't get to see a slow track but when it speeds up you are inevitably dragged with it and you go with the flow with a smile.
The Infliction of Tophet: This song makes the best use of dynamics to produce some really heavy bits and some really speedy sections, one of the best tracks on the album.
Disfigured Anonymity: Back up to full speed for this track and it is a good one the guitars really boost the track into the stratosphere finding a good ground between out and out technicality and catchy hooks.
Terminus: A violent ending that closes the album very well it even very nearly has a sing along chorus and seems to experiment more with different sounds and dynamics.
An album that isn't for the faint hearted, while it can feel a bit one dimensional if you give it some time and dig deep you will uncover some great songs. a fine album.
