NYC-based quintet someonElse forge a unique blend of modern rock on their 11-track debut THE DOOMED. This troupe’s schizophrenic style swings from brooding alt metal where Faith No More reigns supreme to fragile modern rock moments a la Deftones (“Comatose”) to rough around the edges post hardcore championed by the likes of early Thrice (“Faust”) with David DeCeglie’s high-pitched vocals following along with fierce intensity (“The Devil and Dying”). Powerful guitars and pummeling percussion are also prevalent across the span of the release, displaying a dynamic and progressively minded aggressiveness where passionate interplay between musicians maintains levels of intensity necessary to switch from seething to melancholic as effortlessly as they do (“Bad Luck Charm”). Melding a refreshing batch of modern heavy elements together with detailed song structures that challenge the listener, someonElse offers an abundance of strong material for fans of bands such as 36 Crazy Fists, Finch, Karnivool, and Fair to Midland. -Mike SOS
