SINGLE BULLET THEORY
ON BROKEN WINGS
ON BROKEN WINGS is the latest installment from the metal troupe Single Bullet Theory, a 11-track jaunt with bonus live material included. Laying down some crunchy riffs and anguished vocals over typical rhythms, there's a slew of Euro metal influence nestled in between the Pantera-esque power grooves on cuts like "Never Waste a Minute" and "Final Breath", giving this band a bit more depth than expected. Add in the melodic death metal malaise found on "The Killing Floor", a touch of progressive metal on "That Look in Your Eyes", and some cyber-thrash a la Death Angel on "The Reason" and you get an idea the colors the SBT palate contains. If you dig 40 Below Summer, Bloodsimple, or Soilwork, there's something here for you.
