As The Monster Becomes
Renascentia EP

As the Monster Becomes… what?!? Another deathcore album? Why yes folks that’s indeed what it is. Now that 4 of you are left reading this review, we can continue.

This Italian quintet have dropped an EP that basically is exactly what you’d expect: you get plenty of breakdowns, bass drops, a dual-vocal attack, some djent style guitar leanings that have become all the rage, and even some electronic/dub-step elements similar to Beyond all Recognition. The songs are a decent length with the shortest one clocking in at 3 minutes, for an overall run time of just over 20 not counting the intro.

This is decent, but nothing you haven’t heard before. One positive about this album is that for being independent, the production is solid with plenty of bass to be had. That’s a good thing because if you don’t have that in this genre, you’re dead before you even begin. And on a further note it can be had for free through a link on their Facebook page, so the scene kids will be plenty happy about not having to shell out any dough for it. So take a few minutes and check it out if you’re a fan of the genre as it’s an album that can hold its own but definitely won’t make any waves.

    all deathcore bands have to have like, an incomplete sentence as a name in order to exist.
