I fully appreciate a band that can both be a throwback to classic mathcore, yet still hold their own identity through exciting, memorable song compositions. Pupil Slicer deliver what is already one of my favorite metal releases of the year, as well as an impressive debut that makes me super pumped to see what they put out in the future. I highly recommend giving this a listen if you're in the mood for some high energy math/metalcore.

I am so excited to finally explore more metal-based albums and I am enjoying Mathcore the best as a subgenre. This was so cathartic and fearless that I felt all my worries gone. I was instantly immersed by all this seemingly complex yet neat production work. This hypnotizing and grinding throughout the album was a treat to my ears. Impressive debut record from this UK band.
Rarely does a band come around and bring back the vibes found from the Dillinger Escape Plan without coming across as mocking their efforts. This is such a band. This shit is abrasive, but not downright inaccessible or incoherent. There is a fine line between collapse and satisfaction on the album and Pupil Slicer walk that line perfectly. This is definitely a 2021 must-listen.
