SCARLET
THIS WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO FALL APART
FERRET

Scarlet is a Virginia quartet whose string of bad luck, poor health, stolen gear, and other assorted Spinal Tap band moments will hopefully be quelled by the outfit’s eclectic hardcore release THIS WAS ALWAYS MEANT TO FALL APART. Benefiting immensely by having the resources to record in their own studio (drummer Andreas Magnusson owns Red Planet, who has worked with Black Dahlia Murder among others), the 12-track offering’s massive sounding drums and intriguing use of instrumentation assist songs like the caustic “Simply Carcinogen” and the Thrice by way of Devin Townsend Band track “On Fire” in breaking from the usual knuckle dragging pack. Add in some Avenged Sevenfold choral aping on “Glass Veined Wire Frames” and some left of center metalcore piano and synth instrumentation on the otherwise barbaric “Law is Lawless”, and you’ve got yourself a metalcore release that keeps you on your toes as well as windmilling to your heart’s content.
