Redeemer (Solid State)
by Scott Hefflon
A monster of a CD, produced by Ross Robinson, who’d make a grown man cry to get the best performance out of them. For fans of Fear Before the March of Flames and that type of metal, cuz while it’s a huge roar, anyone who’s been into metal for a decade or more can spot the Machine Head here, the Slipknot there, the feedback noise of pretty much anyone with an amp, and so on. 100,000 copies sold or not, they’re kinda little more than a pleasant genre band, one of thousands, and all the artist graphic design in the booklet doesn’t make the music any better.
