AxeWound - Vultures

AxeWound the next supergroup in the metal scene but with double the violence and graphic nature to their name these musicians features Cancer Bats vocalist Liam Cormier and Bullet for My Valentine singer-guitarist Matt Tuck, along with drummer Jason Bowld of Pitchshifter, ex-Rise to Remain bassist Joe Coput and Glamour of the Kill guitarist Mike Kingswood.

This 10-track release is thrashy built with sharp heavy riffs with the vocals being screamy when needed and clean when not. The overall sound is raw yet aggressive like take tracks like "Post Apocalyptic Party" it's filled with riffs hardcore drumming fury with thrashy intensity that's loud and powerful. Whereas "Victim of the System", contains those sing-talk vocals that tend to be highly popular within the hardcore scene making it more enjoyable when a mosh pit forms. "Cold", on the other hand is more melodic than aggressive having the music remain fierce but soothing while "Burn Alive", and "Exorchrist" are more examples of the melodic sound.

All in all "Vultures" is the work of seasoned musicians who are adept at their instruments and their roles. Not relying too much on their past (or most prolific) works, nor do they attempt to be something they are not. It's a album that's fresh after every listen.
