Waves Like Walls – ‘Brain As A Weapon’

Waves Like Walls ArtworkWhat is it with fucking metalcore bands and references to water in their name?  It seems to be that one band picks a theme and every other mutha on the scene tries to come up with the least imaginative variation thereupon…

While this German five piece may wish their name to give the impact of a tsunami, the result on this debut EP is far less destructive or terrifying:  in fact, it’s a very mediocre example of the genre, with typically growled vocals and stop-start guitar riffs.  Even the less than subliminal Slipknot rip-off moments fail to rescue this shipwreck.
