Review: 'State of Deceit'
'Retribution (EP)'   

-  Genre: 'Heavy Metal' -  Release Date: '6th December 2019'

Our Rating:
Genre: Thrash metal.
Influences: Pantera, Slayer, Killswitch Engage.
Cliché title: You might say that.
Riffs: Check.
Snarling / guttural vocals: Check.
Incongruous breaks with clean vocals and melodic guitar breakdowns: Yep.
Colossal fretwanking solos and excessive displays of technical ability: in abundance. To the extent that it’s painful and kills the momentum and the enjoyment. Yep.
Moments where the guitar licks go symphonic and sound like Brian May: Yes – but why? Really, why? Why This is not cool. Never was, never will be.
Metal EP marred to the point of loathing it on account of indulgence and cliché? Yes. Hell, I lasted three tracks.
