Barely Breathing - Relive The Regret

Barely Breathing once getting past the intro opens with the title track and some great thrash tempo metal but the song 'Barely Breathing' is more then that as it produces a good controlled heavy sound that is tight with some great vocal input using the fast slow approach to contrast nicely and allow the singing to enhance the overall sound.

The band are utilising metal core styles and doing very well with it, the second track 'Probable Cause' has some great melodies and excellent crash gear changing guitar sounds that gives meat to the song with twin style vocals plus added impetus with some nice little touches like fret scrapes. The third song 'Guns Of War' continues the solid heavy sound with some more of the same recipe but imposing explosive breaks and some fast bass pedal with extensive aggressive growled vocals to enhance the war feel, another good song.

The album consists of seven tracks of well structured metal songs, 'Marriage Of Heaven And Hell' suits the twin vocal style with some passionate roars, smooth choruses and a memorable riff to give the album more brownie points plus a nice trad guitar solo chugging down the scale and a little bit of twiddle thinking that it couldn't get better 'Ignite' the 6th and penultimate song belts out of the speaker and although perhaps vocally the worst song on the album it has a great heavy guitar sound and is not misplaced on the album at all. The Final tune 'Free Yourself' leads off with a mood setting intro of melodic guitar supported by a little slow skin work before building up the tempo with an atmospheric anthemic sound full of deep lyrics and wisdom with the song getting vocal layers to add impetus to the sound.
This is a good album that will get the band noticed outside their south African homeland and so they should!
