Words that Burn

PRAEY cover art

Alt metal is an endlessly interesting genre, and though I never got deep into it, I think that there's a lot of cool creative content coming out of the strange sonic worlds that these bands craft. One of the coolest rising forces on this distinct scene has to be Words That Burn, an Irish alt metal act who bring in touches of Faith No More along with the Deftones to get a very distinct sound. There is something distinctly screwed up and evil about the sound of this band. Sure at times they may have *gasp* clean vocals, but even then, things seem strangely... demented. One of my favorite aspects of the sound is the eerie melodic lines which ride unevenly on top of a strong rhythmic backbone. There is something distinctly unsettling about Words That Burn and that makes them special. Their new record Praey is one that you're going to want to check out time and time again, simply because it is so gloriously different.
