WEAKENING THE STRUCTURE
THIS DARK REIGN
Recourse is a hardcore death metal troupe whose album was produced by Dying Fetus head honcho John Gallagher. The 10-track WEAKENING THE STRUCTURE wields an anger with crossover appeal a la Hatebreed and Lamb of God, as the band’s succinct hardcore chuggings and shrieking vocals are combined with a dastardly grinding rhythm section on tracks like “Point Blank” and “Nature of Conflict”, giving the band a death metal edge. Heavy in all the right places, and relentless throughout the entire disc, Recourse’s latest release jarringly builds a bridge between hardcore’s straightforward poundings and death metal’s intricate aggression.
