SHRAPHEAD
BLIND AND SEDUCED
METALVILLE

The debut from Norwegian-based unit Shraphead delivers a slab of sleek modern metal that pulls heavily from the histrionic snarl of the gilded age of thrash metal. BLIND AND SEDUCED contains a plethora of cleverly intertwined metalcore by numbers nuances(“Revelation”) in between a barrage of blackened riffs (“Evilberry Jam”) while the liquid yet hard hitting rhythm section’s jackhammer cadence maintains the overall metallic thunder, taking structural cues from the likes of In Flames (“The Life, The Path to Choose”) and Trivium while balancing a formulaic yet spirited blend of rousing melody with a sizable stream of headbanging crunch.
