A Lesson in Respect (Eclipse Records)
Enslain Magazine Issue #6
Order Issue #6!  This review included. The country-influenced state of Tennessee offers us this 3-piece metal band, Disarray. Their label debut, "A Lesson in Respect," is thirteen short songs of slow thrashy guitars with catchy, repetitive hooks, and understandable yelled vocals. The songs are very hardcore-like in their style, but the bass and guitar sound more metal. Vocalist Chuck Bonnett does a small amount of growling on this release as well. Disarray have some relatively decent material that can be quite catchable, and pit-able, but as a whole, this album just sounds like any other demo with good studio production. Their sound isn't original, it's very basic, and really has nothing new to add to the constantly moving scene. I can, however, imagine them to be much more intense live, and worthy of checking out. -- Lady Enslain
