Baptists/Self Titled/Southern Lord Records/2011 CD Review

  Baptists re a band from Vancouver, B.C that play a brand of noisy hardcore mixed with death metal and punk, and this is a review of their self titled 2011 album which was released by Southern Lord Records.

Drums alternate between slow, midpaced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown in at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone which is mixed down low in the mix and eems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars alternate between slow, midpaced to fast riffs that mix, hardcore, death metal and punk together with alot of noisy distortion, and there are little to no lead guitars or solos present on the recording but there are some weird noise effects being used with the e and d strings.

Vocals are mostly hardcore style screams that have a death metal edge to them, while the lyrics cover everyday themes with a hateful edge, as for the production it has a somewhat raw edge but still very heavy and professional sounding.

In my opinion Baptists are a very good hardcore band with a death metal and punk edge, and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Farmed" and "Life Poser". RECEMMONDED BUY.
