Quarter the Villain - _Regicide_
(Independent, 2010)
by: Aly Hassab El Naby (4 out of 10)
Quarter the Villain integrate numerous elements in their music, but each one of these elements sounds like something you've heard from someone else. Also, the "Rocky Mountain Hydro-grind" sound that was stapled by Cephalic Carnage tends to pop up quite a few times while listening to the _Regicide_ EP. There are some cool ideas though, like the waltz melody at the end of "Sock Puppet Vendetta" and the riffs of "Choking a Sloth", but altogether, the tracks are just all over the place.

There really isn't much to say about this fifteen minute EP. Every band member obviously knows his instrument and handles it quite proficiently, but that doesn't instantly make them a good band. Case in point: Dream Theater; but I digress. Quarter the Villain need some extra work to impress, and I wouldn't expect much progress from them if I find a full-length album ready next year. That being said, I think "Choking a Sloth" should make it through to that album.
