Low Twelve/Splatter Patter/DBC Records/2010 CD Review

Low Twelve are a band from Chicago, Illinois that plays a mixture of hardcore, groove metal, and death metal and this is a review of their 2010 album "Splatter Pattern" which was released by DBC Records.

Drums cover alot of variety with some slow to midpaced drumming mixed with some fast playing and brutal blast beats with somewhat of a tribal ege, while the bass playing is all rhythm bass that follows the riffs coming out of the guitars with a very powerful sound and there are also alot of samples from documentaries about war and serial killers.

Rhythm guitars are mostly heavy hardcore style rhythms that are also influenced by groove metal, thrash and death metal in the faster riffs, while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding guitar solos.

Vocals are mostly hardcore style of yelling vocals mixed in with some deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover war, political and hateful themes, as for the production it has a very heavy sound that captures all of the musical instruments.

In my opinion Low Twelve are a good band for this style and while you usually dont listen to that many bans that play this style, I still feel Low Twelfe are a good band and if metalcore with a death metal edge is your thing you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bodies In My Pocket" "Blind Torture Kill" "Not Forgotten" and "Dying Room". RECOMMENDED
