FAVOR THE BRAVE

"Entropy" (Self-released; 2013)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Philadelphia, PA based quintet Favor the Brave demonstrate a deep appreciation and advanced comprehension for the more extreme side of modern heaviness on the outfit’s three-track endeavor "Entropy."

Throwing down an unabashedly skull-crushing display of technical prowess and primetime mosh-worthy passages aplenty (“Resources”), this troupe showcases a hodgepodge of metalcore nuances riddled with dizzying fretwork to create a sound that falls in line between the rousing arrangements of As I Lay Dying, the pugnacious pummeling of August Burns Red, and the sheer heft of Whitechapel (“Salvation”).

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.
