Screaming Beast - Our New Narrative of Hate

Screaming Beast
Our New Narrative of Hate

SCREAMING BEAST are a Groove Metal/Metalcore band, based out of Manchester, England. The band was formed in 2014 and this is their first full length record, after 2 previously released Eps, it is entitled “Our New Narrative of Hate”, that spans 10 tracks over 45:22 minutes of music.

The opener “This Dawn This Day” has a very MACHINE HEAD feel to it, the vocals shift from being very clean to somewhat harsh (similar to HATEBREED at times). The chorus uses back vocals cleverly and musically it reminds me a bit of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE. The guitar solos pack quite the punch. “World with Fate” follows a much more “thrashier” path, with primarily use of clean vocals, and some slower rhythmic patterns. It uses its fair share of panning for its breakdown riffing that should appeal to fans of PANTERA.

“Giving into fear” has a completely different jam feel to it in its early stages, but then rips your head off faster than a shotgun blast and it does it with a powerful groove. One of the strongest tracks on this effort. “Silent submission” has some nice bass-laden riffing, and being the shortest track on the album, it gets its point across very fast. “Despair” as the title would suggest is a slow-pounding number, which sounds a bit like TYPE O NEGATIVE, whereas “Lost and Betrayed” shows off some great bass lines and southern-style soloing, another very cool one to bang your head to. “This Fray” has more distortion than the previous tracks in its intro., and then goes into a nice cavernous tempo. “Society of Slaves” is a pitch-harmonic frenzy and it pushes you to the ground with no chance of getting up.

“The Nameless” would fit perfectly in as a theme song for a new revolution. It shows off a great deal of emotion and controlled intensity. It definitely seems like a plea from the youth for a change in society. “Reborn” ends the album nicely with its LAMB of GOD meets FAITH NO MORE feel to it and shows off some of the harsher, almost death metal vocals found on the album. Overall, fans of many bands I have mentioned above should enjoy these gentlemen. It has a healthy dose of groove, thrash, catchy bass and guitars that pound right through your heart.
