"Three Years Eclipsed" (Candlelight; 2011)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

After a five-year hiatus, New Mexico unit Kryoburn returns with their sophomore effort "Three Years Eclipsed."

This nine-track excursion blends superfluous arrays of Fear Factory’s industrial metal tendencies (“Reinvention”) with bursts of metallic polyrhythms and metalcore melodies, in turn creating a clinically heavy offering (“Slaughtered with Lies”) meticulously pieced together from the scraps from metal’s most advanced laboratories.

Serving a slew of dastardly keyboard enhanced modern metal derivations, this long awaited offering champions a synthetically induced crush that hits with all the right emphasis (“Season of Suicide”) yet stays too close to the template to gather a unique identity or render anything groundbreaking or fresh.

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.
