Chuck Schuldiner Project

Friday, December 7, 2012


Matricide is an interesting, very Meshuggah influenced hardcore band that must be killer live. On the record their music is pretty solid too. I really like this brand of hardcore that takes a lot of other influences (especially nu-metal) to create something really heavy with a cool groove. In many ways their music is similar to Pantera in that they are all about the riff. This is music you can crush skulls to, but also that you can appreciate the musicianship of. My only concern is that, while there are a lot of guitar breaks there are not a lot of bona fide solos. Even though that isn't really a priority in this type of music I still think it might make things a bit more interesting.  It's important to note that it's this bands cool rhythms that help them to craft memorable songs that you want to pump your fist to. It could be described as a more accessible version of djent. I'd love to get a view of these guys from the pit. Overall these guys are very solid musically and are very moshable. They show a bright future for the Israeli metal scene and I'm looking forward to hearing more from them in the near future.
