True to Form - _New Generation of Aggression_
(Independent, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
While there seems to be a lot of really good ideas flowing within this seven-song release and the aggression is there, the music of True to Form just seems to end up surfacing as an amalgamation of many music styles commonly found within '90s metal music. Mesh together the ways of Sepultura, Prong, Stuck Mojo, Korn and Skinlab, for example, and I guarantee you'll find some resemblance here within this act's offering. It's not bad to show respect and be influenced, but this whole music business is set upon making a name for yourself rather than going along with certain sounds or styles. I'm sure they have a solid live show, as their song "What Is the Way" must destroy live, but on disc it all starts to go in one ear and out the other with repeated listens. Maybe things will change down the road -- maybe not.
