Smash together the lead singer of Foxy Shazam, the self-loathing bounce of Korn, and the seething rage of Iowa-era Slipknot and you’ve got Tallah’s Matriphagy.

Songs follow a loose concept and twist and turn without much warning. While a few songs overstay their welcome such as We, the Sad, the overall sound and enthusiasm of the group is fresh, captivating, and promising.

Stand out tracks:
Overconfidence, L.E.D., The Silo

Soundtrack for: Scaring the shit out of little children ... read more

If I Die First revives early 00’s post-hardcore in the vein of From First to Last and They’re Only Chasing Safety-era Underoath. Melodramatic shrieking and higher pitched vocals trade off before giving way to massive choruses and the occasional breakdown. Surprisingly, the songwriting on display is tight, confident, and mostly recreates the initial magic when your ears heard similar sounds a couple decades earlier.

On Human Target, Thy Art Is Murder take two steps forward and one step backward. The merciless title track, prophetic New Gods, and bleak Atonement are a few of the best songs the band has penned to date. Despite this, songs such as Death Squad Anthem and Make America Hate Again are painfully predictable and try to be too clever for their own good.

Thus, the inconsistency of songwriting here causes Human Target to shoot itself in the foot instead of striking a bullseye.

Narrow Head transport listeners back to the nineties and brink of the millennium with nearly apathetic vocals, driving guitars, and mostly mid-tempo romps drowning in fuzz and feedback. 12th House Rock is equal parts moody and frustrated.

Stand out tracks:
Emmadazey, Delano Door, Ponderosa Sun Club

Soundtrack for: Slamming Capri Suns and playing marathons of Tony Hawk Pro Skater on the N64 while going through your darkest days of puberty alone in your room.
