LIES BENEATH
DEATH OF THE AMERICAN DREAM
SELF-RELEASED

NYC metal squad Lies Beneath exhibit a metalcore and thrash hybrid that packs a powerful punch of pummeling percussion with neck-snapping riffs aplenty on their 10-track album DEATH OF THE AMERICAN DREAM. Fusing the soaring crush of Lamb of God, the progressive acumen of Nevermore, the dexterous twin-guitar assault of Shadows Fall, and the opaque melodies of Machine Head (“Acirema”), this unit whips up a maelstrom of melodic metal fury, topped off by a dynamic vocal delivery that supplies the histrionic hostility for songs like the modern thrash structured “Devil Beside You” and the chug-happy Pantera-esque title cut to reach their maximum impact levels. Lies Beneath provides a potpourri of contemporary heaviness boasting both strong songwriting savvy and well-executed performances to warrant the attention of fans of today’s post-thrash metal movement.
