TRIGGER POINT
A SILENT PROTEST
CORPORAL PUNISHMENT

Nu metal mavens Trigger Point come off as an angst-ridden yet versatile lot on A SILENT PROTEST, the outfit’s debut 13-track endeavor. Embracing the nuances of bands like Staind, Mudvayne, and Nonpoint with hints of bands like Glassjaw, VOD, and The Used, this Los Angeles-based quartet is at its peak on tracks like “Picking Up the Pieces”, as a jarringly heavy yet melodic guitar and drum attack permits the vocals to soar, scream, and wail with clarity and a slew of emotion. Pounding out sledgehammer rhythms a la Disturbed on “The Color of Real” and furnishing industrial strength riffs on “Cycle”, the group’s dexterity and ability to convincingly blend genres stand out the most, making this disc enjoyable to the fan of modern day metal’s sound.
