Soulless - _The Darkening of Days_
by: Adrian Bromley (
Ohio act Soulless have definitely got a solid groove going. Their death metal groove mixed with vibrantly aggressive (yet coherent) vocals is definitely worthy of praise as it rarely changes up much, thus allowing the listener to headbang along to the disc without any drastic momentum changes. From start to finish, _The Darkening of Days_ aims to please with its crushing death metal vocals and hard hitting drive. If there was any setback, and usually there is within this genre, it is the somewhat simple production that comes along with their violent outbursts. It just seems too standard sounding. Had the production been a little more cleaned up, I'm pretty sure the songs would make more of an impact. Just my two cents, folks. This still hits fast and hard. Choice cut: "Turn".
