The Evolutionaries Exoskeleton
By Marcus Pan
Weve encountered The
and reviewed their
Normalized CD back in Legends #149.
Exoskeleton is similar in style and make-up; fast paced, crunchy and
speed laced. Borrowing from punk, hardcore and electronic, coming across
sounding like a Jerry Only/Marilyn Manson bastard child, The Evolutionaries
stomp happily about the New York area. Well, maybe not happily but stomp
Right out the gate Exoskeleton comes out thrashingly
fast with Recombination and Model Citizen which follows. The
Center Will Not Hold will slice in some melody like a scalpel filleting the
heavyset guitar riffs. Vocals touch whinyness without sounding like cheese.
Bliss use of off-kilter sounds that clash
together, a furious battle between electronics, drums, guitars and vocals
only one army short of a Lord of the Rings level razing of the
plains. Closing this short five track release is This World is Ending.
After brutalizing you for a while, a windy ending blows away the torment of the
album. An interesting close to the Exoskeleton EP.
Nice work again by The Evolutionaries. Exoskeleton is
similar in scope and style to Normalized but with all the genres the
group borrows from its hard to sound dated or rehashed when you have so
many pieces to put together during the creation of a single track.
