EMERGENCY GATE
THE NEMESIS CONSTRUCT
TWILIGHT ZONE

German squad Emergency Gate apparently boned up on their melodic death metal on their fourth release as indicated on the sextet’s latest 13-track offering THE NEMESIS CONSTRUCT. Ripping the keyboard overlay and churning metal rhythm trick directly from the overwrought In Flames/ Scar Symmetry/ Raunchy playbook (“As My Bride Cries Blood”) while doing very little else dissimilar from their peers to stand out, this disc renders some durable tunes that will get the neck moving a la Killswitch Engage or Bullet for My Valentine (“The Green Mile”) yet ultimately suffers from the stick to the by the book method, hindering this act to rise above anything beyond being just another unidentifiable heavy band with slick production, modern technique and played out Swedish metal nuances.
