BODY POLITIC, THE - Egressor - CD - Indie - 2014

As far as "modern" metal albums go, Egressor is a love/hate affair. If you are new to metal and don't know better, you will love it. However, if you have heard proper music, you will have a hard time looking for it here.

Basically, you have ultra technical, disjointed sections with growls - which are impeccable - and then parts with clean vocals or hardcore guitars - which are impeccable too, but serve no purpose. Just when you start thinking you are getting a grasp of the song, one extreme will be replaced by the other, and in the end you will just feel sad that - as awesome as they can be - the good parts are ruined by unnecessary fillers. Where some bands could use a similar approach to create some dynamics, The Body Politic just throw in interchangeable parts one after another and hope that, in the end, somebody will think that these compose songs. To their credit, The Body Politic put a lot of parts into some 24 minutes of this EP; but what's the point? (5/10)
