"Pursuit in the Face of Consequence" (Century Media; 1999)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Haste is as hard working a metal band as I have seen in a while. Their CD, "Pursuit in the Face of Consequence" (you have to say the title out loud to get the full effect) is 11 songs and 40+ minutes of blistering, in your face, hellbent metal.

Haste is a six person band as opposed to the customary three or four, and that means two full time guitars and two full time vocals which combine to make for a very interesting ride. 

Sometimes the vocals seem to grate on the nerves a bit, but after a while you realize the screeching vocals are all part of the fun. 

Overall, a talented and killer band!

Haste is Kelly Reaves and Chris Mesley on vocals, Jason Burns and Nicolas Burnsen on guitars, Brandon Thrasher bass and Jeff Gardner drums. 

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.
