"Meris" (Demo; 2004)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
Meris's three song demo is a curious taste of a potentially interesting band. The three songs on this CD blend elements of industrial, modern metal and a hint of thrash for an overall effect that is original but also feels a little uneven.
The first track, "Desire Quandary," kicks off things with a Mudvayne-like edge. "More of Nothing," track two, has a slower pace and is a quirkier tune. Track three, "Nova Scotia," is probably the best written of all three tunes, supported by a great riff and a rolling pace.
As always, three tracks isn't really enough to get an overall picture of a band, but the three songs on this demo show a band with potential. I look forward to hearing more from the band, especially something of a more frenetic pace.
Meris: Sean Hugunin - vocals/guitar; Ryan Buck - guitar/vocals; Eli Atkinson - bass; Brad Roberts - drums.

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.
