As the World Burns

Enslain Magazine Issue #8
As the World Burns’ material finds itself floating through different states of being, from melodic to almost grinding death to mildly thrashy, and all within the same songs. They do each of these well, but the arrangement of it just seems awry. It doesn’t seem to form a complete thought, and tends to lose attention quickly. If they’d develop these fragments a little more, the catchy riffs would have an opportunity to be caught. The production is decent, and they sound fairly tight together, but it just doesn’t sound like they’ve established a sound, and though this tape has its memorable moments, they don’t last long enough without finding themselves getting off-track again. -- Lady Enslain
