TRACK THE CURSE
THE NEW LAND
Track the Curse is an outfit that sounds like two completely different bands on THE NEW LAND. One side uses an unfittingly gruff vocal sounding more like a growling Florida death metal act, while the other opts for a more West Coast punk rock vocal vibe, as the band trudges through a bastardized concoction of splattercore, black metal, and three chord punk stomps. On the 11-track offering, this quartet aim for the lowest common denominator of rock, keeping it at gut level throughout tracks like “Serpentine City” and “Reaching for the Lost”. If Cannibal Corpse hooked up with Hot Water Music, this would be the result.
