Release: 2017
Genre: Metalcore/Hardcore
Reviewer: Greg Watson

Tech metalcore from the swamplands
COMMENTS:
Forthteller's EP 'Nihilist' is an exercise in madness for me. Comprised of five tracks, the band follows the standard metalcore formula of song structures causing the album to be a little too predictable. It's when the band breaks from the mold a little that things really shine. Technical guitar riffs with thunderous drums and catchy vocals capture your attention and keep you rapt with anticipation for more. Those moments are too few and far between though and in the end, 'Nihilist' just sounds like another metalcore album added to the fold.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Asking Alexandria, Upon A Burning Body, Of Mice & Men
