Time Has Come - _White Fuzz_
(Regain Records, 2008)
by: Jackie Smit (5.5 out of 10)
Time Has Come is Regain's contribution to the ever-expanding death-core subgenre, and please don't get me wrong -- unlike some of my more elitist brethren, I don't automatically hiss, spit and join the chorus of boos at the whiff of a band being compared to the likes of Suicide Silence and Despised Icon. For my open-mindedness however, at the very least I don't expect to be taken for a sucker.

The trouble with Time Has Come isn't so much in how they're packaged and sold, as it is that they're a hopelessly shoddy facsimile of the bands they attempt to emulate. This is boldly underlined by the record's b-grade production, which causes even some of the band's brighter ideas (the latter half of opener "Keep Your Tongue From Evil" for starters) to be drowned out under a blanket of distortion. It also serves to highlight the fact that the band possess little of the depth or dynamics of their North American counterparts, and as much as they attempt to cram as many ideas as they possibly can into the space of each five minute song, the reality is that every few of these land like the crisp, clean punches they were intended to be.
