"Subcyde" (Last Entertainment; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Swedish quartet Subcyde's vengeance screams metal on their eponymous 11-track disc. This band's style falls somewhere within the Pantera plus Meshuggah marker but is ultimately greatly diminished due to its sheer derivative nature. 

Subcyde does manage to hit hard, groove thick, and growl convincingly, but many bands happen to pound out the same batterings with a bit more uniqueness and style, leaving Subcyde to go back and try to find something all their own.  

Subcyde: Johan Wikforss drums; Ola Englund Guitars; Martin Anderson Bass; Antonio da Silva - Vocals.

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.
