Sharp end first deliver an amazing and interesting mix of seriously heavy metalcore and powerful, soaring melody.This band are extremely talented, dynamic, and energetic. a bit like killswitch engage meets chimaira with their own individual, unique edge. All 11 tracks are quite simply awesome and its hard to choose a stand out track!! wishbones, dividing infinity, suffer yourself and warchie grabbed me by the balls instantly!!!The drumming is relentless, pounding with originality and a sense of urgency. The vocals are a fascinating turn between a scream/roar and clean melodic and superb singing, sometimes both within one sentence(check out warchie).The guitarwork is faultless, intense riffing blending effortlessly into melodic glory and effects at just the right time. The more i listen to this album, the more im hearing in it, the sign of a truly excellent band. Another refreshing part about s.e.f are their lyrics, which are heartfelt, intelligent and meaningful, a listener prepared to dig a bit deeper will find much to identify with. All in all, this album is an interesting, diverse and most enjoyable mix of straight up , honest to god, in your face real metalcore with a dash of skater rock and the most anthemic choruses. I LOVE this album!
for fans of: killswitch engage, 36 crazyfists, chimaira and soilwork
