Gizmachi “The Imbuing” Sanctuary Records 2005
The standout tracks for me were instantly “The Answer”, and “Bloodwine” for the melody they chose to mix with the track. “Romantic Devastation” begins with a progressive run that would impress any fan of technical playing but the rest of that track is only ok if you asked me. The rest of the CD is a mix of the two styles but has a lot of similarities to the other tracks. This is no means a bad thing for a debut release for there is always room to grow and expand. Yet there are folks who demand this style above all else.
The people who dig the Slipknot sound might enjoy this a little more since it has a connection to the Slipknot guy, however it stands the risk of falling to the wayside if some more of the strong points they have demonstrated are not focused on in future music. The industry seems to be making room once again for power house singing and musical composition and only a select few in the growler metal stand to remain standing should this regain dominance in the market. Audience listeners today do not seem to focus as much hard core dedication on bands as they used to and interest is definitely fleeting in a lot of cases. I feel Gizmachi has the potential to surpass some of their peers, so let's see what comes out from them next.
