These metalheads from South Carolina tear my brain to shreds with this highly anticipated deathcore album: Skepsis. It's been 3 years since Malice and their fans, including me were very anxious for this release.
These ten tracks are furious and well produced beyond my highest expectation. In fact this album, lyrically is one big concept! I don't have the lyric book, so I'm not quite sure what it's about. What I gather from the lyrics I have looked up, is that in the character's mind...chaos and Dementia and other conniptions ensue. Well my brain was also turned to some lovely gunk of joy. I adore this death metal record. It's the vocalist's lows that put the album into overdrive and sends your mind flying. The guitars are, as I say for the heaviest albums: pummeling!
The breakdowns would make any scene kid groove and believe me this is NOT scene kid music by any means haha.
The only flaw present to my ears was the constant use of the double bass drum. I love me some double bass, yet these sound to artificial for my listening. Other than that there are no other flaws in my view.
Skepsis is a key to one of my many inspirations for writing any death metal riffs. Death metal and deathcore fans will really head-bang to these 39 minutes and crave more and eventually float into...Skepsis.
