Vice (UK) - Vultures - Reviewed by Obliveon ! Check it out here at this link: https://obliveon.de/review/vice-for-the-fallen/
There is a lot to find out about the British "A new breed of metal" trio, consisting of singer and guitarist Tom Atkinson, bassist Aiden Lord and drummer Connor Summers and their debut longplayer "For The Fallen", but the sound of the band from Manchester is all the more interesting and worth listening to.
Somewhere I picked up the style name Melodic or Metallic Thrash. And indeed, the eight new tracks are very melodic, very modern thrash on the border of metalcore.
Tracks like the grandiose 'Rise ́ with its choral and call/response shouts or the only video single 'Vultures ́ have a healthy dose of hardness, force and speed, but also go and stay directly in/in the ear.
Further examples are the driving 'Exist & Remain ́ and the concluding, rousing title song, which are also like a modern-melodic variant or mixture of Machine Head riffs, Lamb of God shouts, trivium chorus and a shot of Parkway Drive.
However, the result is some really audible songs such as the best of the record, the anthem of the Forgotten 'Left Behind ́, six varied minutes with a lot of dynamics, power, tempo and several lightning-fast, crazy guitar solos.
Thus, the entire Silberling is a fascinating, forty-minute ride, rounded off by a chic cover artwork that fans of the mentioned bands and contemporary, melodic (thrash) metal should try.
