Sawthis – Youniverse

sawthis - youniverse - album cover art e

Sawthis, from Italy, presents us with 2013’s Youniverse.

The album sounds like modern extreme metal, which touches on industrial, thrash, and progressive elements.

Lyrics are screamed in a hatecore style, so the ‘Cookie Monster’ factor is absent.

More refreshment is provided in that the drums sound like drums – like they should.

The songtitles have a wonderful flow; each is a short phrase.

Song intros often feature samples, and are all reasonable ‘radio-length’ (under 4.5 minutes each).

Not especially melodic, tunes incorporate elements from newer Sepultura, Pantera, Hatebreed, and Machine Head – this release should please fans of those bands.
