THE CAST PATTERN
THE CAST PATTERN
UPRISING

Kansas quintet The Cast Pattern unleash a smörgåsbord of extremity on their debut 11-track affair. Coarse vocals that straddle the metalcore wire collide with a perfectly self-titled "thick/thin" guitar combo that find a strong balance between grind and groove on cuts like whimsically-named "She's Not Pregnant, She's Just Fat". Add in helping hands from Guy Kozowyk (The Red Chord mainman lends some backups on "Shut Your...") and Scott Hull (Mr. Pig Destroyer mixed this maelstrom of metal) and the end results in concrete slabs of aggression with a refined edge that allows space for volatile breakdowns and spastic blotches of tech metal warfare to coexist in perfect duress. If you like it jagged and dangerous, these guys deliver.
