What is going on around the Northern U.S. and the Canadian area? I keep expecting a certain sound from that area, but each disc I hear is completely the opposite.
Drillpoint's 6-song CD is all about super-chunky riffs and shrill guitars and you're about as apt to find a melody line in here as you'll find a virgin on a porno set.
"Snapperhead" stands out as the best track for me with a rapid fire vocal delivery that sounds like Dave Draiman on crank. The middle set of songs tended to lose me somewhat with their medium pace, but the faster rhythms of the last song "Sick Mind" give it a lot of more punch that the others.
Bottom Line: It's all about the E-string, baby.
