flesh and honey
Posted by: ReviewRinseRepeat from: Nebraska on
Syrens debut self-titled EP opens up with, “Flesh and Honey”, a hardcore blend with elements of grind, metal, and screamo. The former giving an interesting take on where the genre is going. The layered vocals that present themselves towards the latter end of the track give what is generally a bland category of music a unique perspective and something to look forward too as the album progresses. “The People vs Mother Wolf”, illustrates itself with off-key guitarwork building up the mood; while ending in a tumultuous breakdown. Song structure, patterns, and timing are all very reminiscent of The Jonbenet but in a heavier form.
Moving into the thick of the album, “Metamorphosis”, the tempo slows down quite a bit; with drawn out cacophonous chords and drumworking setting the mood. The lyrics and vocals have a lethargic, yet oxymoronically energizing aura about them. The instruments and time signatures are definitely the theme of “Equality 7-2521,” at the same time the vocals seem to drudge on the mood of shoegaze-categorized bands.
Oh, Sleeper because an obvious comparison as the album moves into “May Armageddon Reign In These Hands.” Flushing out the finale, “Poison Begat Poison”, the theme of breaks and breakdowns, has a very well-comprised summarization of the album as a whole. The final track also does well to lay out a significant ending, and provide a provoking setting for future work.
To give a brief conclusion, the album consists of a blend of quickriff grind, sludgerock, classic hardcore and much more. The genre crossovers and diversification definitely give Syrens their own feel, and something that should be given a listen to any fan of hardcore to any degree.
