As We Fight/ The Psyke Project - Ebola

As We Fight/ The Psyke Project
by Fede "FedeRock" Taich at 16 May 2011, 4:51 PM

These two Metalcore/Hardcore bands from Denmark decided to go on an old school type of release and put out a split CD. It presented four songs of AS WE FIGHT and five songs of THE PSYKE PROJECT. I can tell you one thing; if you like modern Hardcore you will totally love this album.

AS WE FIGHT is a band that has been around for a while with three albums and an EP. This band has made itself quite a name in the Hardcore scene. This release is also a comeback release for singer Laurits Medom. The four songs are just straightforward Hardcore with a very powerful sound and attitude just as Hardcore should sound.

THE PSYKE PROJECT is a kind of the same mood as the former. It has been around as the former and had also three full-length to date.The difference is especially in the style of music, even though it’s still Hardcore, this band is more aggressive and a little more twisted. The guitar riffs are very MESHUGGAH like and the vocals are more of the Death Metal style. Moreover, there is a big Doom influence.

These two bands have done, from where I saw it, a very smart move, because today you have to keep the fans updated and if you don’t have enough stuff for a full-length album it’s a smart move to do a split especially with a band that is kind-off in the same mood. This is something that was very popular in the 80s Metal/Hardcore scene and I think that with the current situation of the music business today, it can be a great option.

I think that the album sounds good when it comes to the production. I really loved that there is a small difference between the sounds of the two bands, but on the other hand there is still the feeling that this is a full album. The only thing that bothered me is that these guys didn't renew anything. The songs are good but it’s not something that I would call refreshing.
