The debut album for Honour Crest on Rise Records is a maniacal blend of electronica, acrobatically insane guitars and drums, and the usual clean and not so clean vocal tandem that’s sweeping the metalcore genre. So how did it sound?
My first thought when the album began was that the band was going to sound like old school Ministry with a blend of metal guitars and industrial sound. Instead, after the intro, the band kicked into a blaring dose of insanity that included blood curdling vocals combined with a more melodic sounding clean vocal touch. Drums are all over the place on this album. It’s really something that left me in awe, as did the guitars. 
The guitars on the album are wicked fast and sharp. Drums, bass and guitar work well together in this band as they hit combinations that will drive you out of your seat and make you act a little wild. I did enjoy the electronic aspect which felt right in the mix instead of sounding like an extra experimentation. The band seems to know what their doing. 
Once again I am operating without a lyric sheet so from what I could ascertain from the vocals is that it’s pretty much more of the same from this genre, but excellently delivered. I would highly suggest checking out this album if you’re into the whole mathcore thing. This band has precision down. My only real gripe is that if you don’t own a stupendous pair of headphones or a killer system, a lot of the music tends to get lost in the mammoth sound of the album. Otherwise, go get it.
