What a surprise it was to see that they were already releasing a new CD only a year and a half after the first. I heard them in 2013 when I found 'Shut It Down', since then I was hooked. Bought 'The Beauty of Destruction' when it released and loved it. After hearing it for the last year and a half I still love it, but They Bleed Red trumps it in every way.
The first thing you notice when 'Consume the Damned' starts up is that it just explodes. After the wave of awesome settles, you notice that it explodes very cleanly, the production is crystal clear here. I loved 'The Beauty of Destruction' but it had a very echo-y feeling to it at times, especially with Howard's voice. Not a problem here, it all sounds clean and Howard is pumping out some even more incredible screams and cleans for this record.
Though it may seem the band is centered around Howard Jones, as Howard is widely discussed when you hear about Devil You Know, the band Francesco Artusato(Lead and Rhythm guitar), John Sankey(Drums) and, first appearance on CD with DYK, Ryan Wombacher(bass) light up the night instrumentally. Francesco's fingers just don't seem to stop dancing across the frett board with his leads. His solo's are also blistering and smooth. The drums are thundering, but has very precise and intense cymbal and snare work. Johns double bass is also some of the fastest I've heard. Though Francesco did great on covering bass with the first album, Ryan's presence as an experienced metal bassist is felt and adds a great dynamic and heaviness to the music.
That being said, Howard cannot be ignored and the man pulls off some of his most dynamic work to date on this record, in my opinion. I, like most, first heard him with Killswitch Engage.Read more ›
