DAY OF VENGEANCE
"CRUTCHLESS"
RED CORD RECORDS

DAY OF VENGEANCE formed back in 2009 out of Bradenton, Florida. These guys play
a mixture of Metalcore & Hardcore music. The base of their foundation is more of a
Metalcore sound and Hardcore built on top of it. They do mix some old school Hardcore
with some more modern Post Hardcore sounds and styles. The music will go from straight
out fast paced madness into a slower more melodic type vibe. I liked how they would
switch back and forth between these styles, even though I prefer the heavier ones. When
they get into the heavier parts they tend to head back to an old school Hardcore style of a
lot of bands from the '90's. It kind of had a New York Hardcore feel that reminded me of
bands like
SICK OF IT ALL, MADBALL & early AGNOSTIC FRONT with some
TERROR tossed in the mix. Then the more modern Metalcore parts would come into play
and bands like
ATTILA, FOR TODAY, CHELSEA GRIN & even some KILLSWITCH
ENGAGE
. There is a crushing groove that runs through out a lot of their songs, which I
really dug a lot. They add in a lot of change ups, hooks and breakdowns along the way as
well. The vocals are a blend of styles as well. There are some really harsh screaming old
school Hardcore vocals, some melodic clean Post Hardcore vocals, some lower ended
Metalcore growls and even some grooved out Nu Metal type vocals that reminded me of
HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD  a little. These guys have a lot going on in their music and
they seem to be able to bring it all together nicely. I could see a lot of fans from both the
Hardcore & Metal scene really getting into these guys. "CRUTCHLESS" is a killer album
from beginning to end and is definitely one album you will want to play over and over
again. This one will be hard to top on their next outing!
