The dudes that make up Cataract get to blow out ten candles on their birthday cake this year. If they eat birthday cake that is because listening to their music I think these guys’ prefer drinking blood to eating cake. Anyway, to celebrate the occasion they released an eponymous album and on it they blast away as usual.
Their particular brand of metalcore is not that original (think Born From Pain and the likes) but they do it so well and with so much energy, that you can’t help but get sucked in. Cataract combines a big fat groove with breakneck speeds before reigning everything back in again and then letting it go full blast. This pacing along with riffs that will make your face melt make for one devastating monster of an album that will blow you away from start to finish. Here’s to ten more years of shredding and blasting away every bit as meticulous as the clocks their countrymen are known for.
Score: 8 out of 10
