ON BROKEN WINGS
SOME OF US MAY NEVER SEE THE WORLD
On Broken Wings hails from Boston, and this six piece outfit fits quite nicely into the whole New England hardcore and metal scene, as the 10 tracks that comprise SOME OF US MAY NEVER SEE THE WORLD display the best elements of the East Coast movement. Armed with a heavy-handed death metal attack, especially vocally, the style melds well with the dark, sludgy guitars, which are reminiscent at times of fellow statesmen Overcast and Converge. The band also steers its metallic vessel through different genres of metal, from tough guy metalcore breakdowns (check out the opening riff to "Like Starscream") to shimmering instrumental interludes, making emo-tinged music with guttural vocals sound a lot smoother you'd think. Taking bits and pieces from all of the heavy music scenes in its area, rather than merely molding composite musical sketches, On Broken Wings have formed an ambitiously creative work of art of its own.
