FIGURE OF MERIT
VATIC
EARACHE

File Minneapolis noiseniks Figure of Merit under the broad extreme metal genre, as this pummeling quartet let loose eight tracks brazen with massive amounts of dissonant feedback and hardcore attitude. Tracks like “Arrow to the Sun” lock the listener inside a hypnotic groove underneath a bed of cacophony, while “This Will Not Save You Anymore” combines nuances of doom metal and hardcore to come off like Mastodon meets Snapcase. For an intriguing experience full of crashing instruments and jagged structures, Figure of Merit’s brutal barrage succinctly delivers.
