"Engage the Mechanicality" (Siege of Amida; 2010)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Midwestern deathcore squad Discreet showcases endless streams of breakneck chops and invigorating levels of aggression on the 11-track sophomore effort "Engage the Mechanicality."

Despite the awkward album title and spelling of their name, this release unleashes a technically proficient and relentlessly ferocious assault that adroitly bounces within the death metal genre to present an onslaught meshing crushing cacophony with seething rage and jawdropping musical prowess (“Bishop of War”).

Armed with a face-melting twin guitar battering that adds intrigue to the unit’s beefed up delivery of headbanging grooves, tumultuous tempo shifts and primal slam metal melodies (“Human Harvest”), Diskreet concocts their hybrid style with care and conviction, devastatingly deviating from the norm throughout this affair to warrant repeated listens at maximum volume.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
