TRENCHES
THE TIDE WILL SWALLOW US WHOLE
SOLID STATE

The press release quotes for this disc pretty much sums it up;"We're not doing this to win the scene, to have the tightest jeans or the swoopiest haircuts. We're doing this for us", says former Haste the Day frontman Jimmy Ryan, whose new unit Trenches have cleverly discovered the middle ground between Isis, Tool and Mastodon on their debut release THE TIDE WILL SWALLOW US WHOLE. Shaping its powerful post-metal disposition with dollops of sludge metal into glistening instrumental interludes with tumultuous shifts in tempo and emotion ("Bittersweet"), this band masterfully melds modern metal's avant garde elements together ("Call It a Day"), forming a trajectory of dynamic metal which conveys a forward-thinking yet focused mindset that fans of Zao, Deftones, and Cult of Luna will have no problem embracing.
