Review - The Safety Fire - Sections

The Safety Fire - Sections

4 out of 10

Again, with the syncopated double bass and triplet picking. It's becoming more than tedious now. The Safety Fire uses this technique so much. Alongside lots more double bass, polyrhythm, solo's left right and centre, breakdowns, melody and atmospheric quiet passages. Everything a modern metal band needs in their diet.

It's played impressively tight but then everybody else is playing this sort of thing. I don't mean to be harsh but it' far too sterile and generic, which is a pretty bad word to use to describe technical music but nowadays it seems quite a regular occurrence.

of course there are lot of bands doing this kind of staff right now, but somehow the vocal in this one stands out, sounds kind of oldschool.
I really like this record, because it stands out from the mainstream of 2009 and older records.
