"Defaced" (Self-produced)

Reviewed by Rose Grech


With Twelvepointhead, at first you can hear the funk influenced bass, but then it unravels into something else and then some with clear vocals, good guitars and drums similar to the sound of the early 90s. Twelvepointhead is not the poppy rock that's been out lately.

Critics have been labeling them as "Nu-Metal with a difference." I disagree - some critics just want to put a label on bands when you really can't. Twelvepointhead has a good, strong, tight sound that is pretty rockin'.

"Defaced," their debut album, has a few good songs with catchy rhythms and choruses, but nothing is overdone, which is nice and simple.

For their interesting and odd bio check out Maybe it's the British humour that lost me, not exactly sure. (Yes, this band is from England.)

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.
