NEGLIGENCE
COORDINATES OF CONFUSION
METAL BLADE

Slovenian new jack thrash metal squad Negligence lay down an ornery chunk of headbanging tunes on their sophomore 10-track effort COORDINATES OF CONFUSION. Reminiscent of bands such as Testament and Forbidden, this troupe does an adequate job of keeping vocal lines melodic without losing a feral snarl (“Disharmony”) while the walloping bass and drums dole out an unspectacular yet sturdy foundation for the guitar to rip through the speakers like a cross between Nevermore and Shadows Fall (“Screaming Fear”). Proficient yet hindered by following the classic blueprint a bit too stringently, Negligence leave little to the imagination but does a bang up job in replicating the breakneck feel of many of the Bay Area’s finest in their prime.
