Spineshank are the band that are on the tip of everyone's tongue. It always seems that they are inches away from a massive breakthrough and reaching a level of success that their peers have acheived much quicker. Their debut was a raw, heavy album that fused melody with blistering metal, and the follow-up, 2000's 'The Height Of Callousness' took what was already there and bulked up their sound with the use of electronics. 'Self-Destructive Pattern' is the culmination of those two albums. Both sides of the coin are presented here and Spineshank have turned out not only their heaviest, but their catchiest album to date. Songs like "Violent Mood Swings" and "Dead To Me" will kick you around the room until they finish, well "Smothered" and "Beginning Of The End" have Spineshank showing a softer & catchier, yet unrestrained style. The pinnacle of this album to me is the slow-burning "Stillborn," which is the perfect fusion of metal and electronica. Other standouts include: "Consumed," "Slavery," and "Forgotten." I definitely recommend that if you like any kind of heavy music, you pick this up. Spineshank are experts at what they do. They know how to bob your head without snapping it off and they are just now reaching full maturity.

When it comes to Nu-Metal bands such as Linkin Park, Disturbed or Papa Roach come to mind. Radio friendly, angry at your dad, rap/metal. While there's nothing wrong with that, the genre doesn't seem to bolster a great deal of creativity. Spineshank I feel is underated, for their lack of rap, and not so radio friendly songs. Lyrically they've improved at some aspects, but stll contain the angst filled shouts "It's like a f*cking disease!" But overall they've managed to make some nice progressionns with each album starting with Strictly Diesal(which sounded somewhat Industrail).
The CD is quite good, and the vocalist does a nice job switching from his shrieks to more melodic singing, something which was sparse in Hieght of Callousness.
1. Violent Moodswings - This song could of come right off of Callousness. It's a rougher piece of work, but I like it for it's rawness.
2. Slavery - This is progression, the lyrics are good, and the song is hard but not so much that it hurts.
3. Smothered - The most radio friendly song on here, it's practically devoid of any shrieking, and is slower, but you fans of old will still enjoy it.
4. Consumed (Obsessive Compulsive) - A decent song, it does do a nice job in switching from his growling to singing voice. After a few listens it gets kinda old.

5. Beginning Of The End - The beggining kinda sounds like New Disease, but the rest of the song is anything but... it's more catchy and less harsh.
6. Forgotten - The slowest song, I think they could of done better, it's sounds like something Linkin Park would sing.
7. Self Destructive Pattern - From here on out it's back to old school, the songs pick up as do the lyrics.
8. Tear Me Down - One of the faster songs on here, lyrically it could be better.

And even if it could, the cd blows easily away with its memorable tunes, clear melodocism, and the remarkable heaviness.
At some tracks the band definitely got even heavier and angrier sound, while the songs like Smothered, Beginning of the End, and Forgotten (hopefully, one of next singles) can stay forever in your head due to actual melodic singing and extremely catchy choruses. The commercially professional and correct mixture of the "screaming" hard-hittnig songs with more plain heavy rock-like tunes only helps in this case, making the album interesting for much greater number of the heavier music fans.
Lyrics and perfectly played instuments add a lot, and overall the recent release by Spineshank can easily and beautifully decorate rock charts, as well as any modern rock collection.
Undoubtedly strong effort that's worth buying and real enjoying.

Now most of you who like heavy heavy heavy music won't like this as much as HOC, but this CD also has the heaviest stuff they've ever made...however, it also has some of the lightest stuff they've ever made. I like the analogy used on the roadrunner records site. It says that HOC punches you in the face and keeps punching you, while Self-Destructive Pattern will punch you, let you think they're done, and then punch you in the face again. This is exactly how the CD is. With tracks like Violent Mood Swings, Slavery, Consumed, Self-Destructive Pattern, Stillborn, Falls Apart, and Dead to me...there is no drop off on how heavy they are. However, with tracks like Smothered, Beginning of the End, Forgotten, and Fallback...they will gain a lot of new fans.

when roadrunner released return of the rock cd it had "synthetic" on it (from height of callousness), i thought it was the best song on the cd, so i bought the album thinking they had songs like synthetic.. nope..
i was totally f**king blown away.. basically every song on it was very good or the best ever.. iv'e had the album for 3 years.. & still love it 110%.. after waiting like 2 1/2years they finally got their 3rd cd out & still has the edge it had in thier 2nd album. In my opinion this album is no greater then H.O.C. but has songs that any spineshank fan would love. They have gotten lighter in some of thier songs.. like "beginning of the end", & "fallback. They also got heavier.. like "violent moodswings", self destructive pattern & stillborn. I came to find that i like Spineshank's heavy side better then thier melodic side. Although Spineshank is both heavy & melodic mixed in, they do have songs where its just melodic. Songs like "Synthetic", "New Disease", "Full Circle", "Smothered" & "Forgotten" are melodic songs that i like. "Fallback" is a little too upbeat, which i hope Spineshank never ends up doing.
01. Violent Moodswings 10/10: What a great way to start off the album
02. Slavery 9/10: Good death/hardcore metal song.. lyrics in this are kinda weak though
03. Smothered 10/10: Does this remind u of "Synthetic"?? another great song that deserves a metal.
04. Consumed 10/10: One of my fav spineshank songs, i never tire of this song
05. Beginning Of the End 6/10: I love the music in the verses, really dark.. at first i dint like this song but i gave it a few listens and its not a bad song
