Review: Spyker - Spyker EP
- Artist: Spyker
- Album: Spyker EP
- Release date: November 15, 2013
- Record label: Independent
- Track listing:
- "Of Horses and Beasts"
- "Murderers Grace"
The Self-titled EP starts offf with the song "Kill". The music is very thrashcore oriented and fast, with mixes of slow metalcore and the occasional deathcore slowdown breakdown. The Vocals sound very similar to Into the Flood on this track to me. The Cleans don't sound very good, but those drums slay. The band later goes into a Deathcore breakdown of sorts near the end of the track.
"Of Horses and Beasts starts with very southern metal riffs and reminds me of Phinehas. These guys should be on the next Christian Deathcore comp! They also remind me of From the Shallows.
"Murderers Grace" is very bass and ride cymbal oriented for the first measure (speaking musical terms here) The vocals take a Hardcore feel, which I'm not the biggest fan of. On a Unclean Vocal stance, I'm getting a Forfeit Thee Untrue feel. It's a pretty good way to end the EP.
Overall: Very promising band! The performance and the production are amazing. The Vocals aren't my favorite, but they certainly do a good job. Check these boys out!
