Losing Sun Inertia
By Marcus Pan
Inertia, from Europes metal act Losing
Sun, starts off with Dirtnap on a good note, but before the song ends Im
feeling that its a bit bland, like a cardboard replica of previous
alternative and nu-metal acts that have been around for some time. The
interesting bit is that Losing Sun manage to sneak in a few extra elements
surprising us with a touch of thrash, a dollop of grunge and a sneaky
bit of occasional rapcore. The upside is they handle them all well. The
downside is the mixture blands itself out, like theyre unable to reach
their peak in any one style.
Made up of Marcus on guitar, Paul on Vocals, Mattiaus on
bass and Jayce on drums, Losing Sun certainly have a nice bit of talent among
them, but they fail to show me anything I can really chew on. Its like
the leftover chicken salad I had for dinner I had it before, and it was
better then, but hey its something to eat and I aint gotta cook.
Again the funky opening of nominal song Inertia perks
my interest momentarily the squealy riffing guitar from Marcus sneaks in
a rapcore bit of shred but they try to mix this with a thrash style on vocals
that just loses my interest, then add in a bit of alternative ballad to throw
the song off track even more. Im also finding the typos in their lyrics
really fucking annoying and the lyrics themselves are a bit cliché
overall too. Channeling the Stone Temple Pilots a bit in Closure.
Losing Sun have a lot of talent, really, but its just
another dose of talent in an overdose of industry. Inertia is a cold
salad compared to the spicy chicken burritos of past years newcomers in
these various genres that Losing Sun channel into their mix. I dig all the
styles they cover, but theyll have to pick one and excel at it rather
than switch off between them. They have thrash down quite well, and grunge
