Curb - _Curb_
by: Adam Wasylyk (3 out of 5)
Just by checking out the cover art, song titles, and of course the band's name, I concluded that this was just another hardcore/punk band. Putting it on, I was astonished to find it's actually death/black metal! Vocals influenced by Carcass and any black metal vocalist, they at times shifted in sound which kept things interesting. The music for the most part is mid-to-slow-paced with the majority having little speed. There are some blast beat parts but the guitars had precedence in the final mix which left them sounding weak. Production isn't very good and needs improvement. I give credit to Curb for not trying to cash in on the death/black metal imagery and trying to survive on the music alone (this is proved by having song titles like "Mend", "37th Triangle", "Blanket", and "Out"). They have my eternal respect.
