We Swim

We Swim
(Self-released - 2009)

The Copenhagen-based quartet offers death'n'thrash / metalcore and kick off with A Million Metaphors, they take you onto a wild ride! Sometimes complex parts, sometimes straight forward, but always with some mean growls by Jonathan Albrechtsen. With We Swim they stick to the chosen path, but get more brutal. Death metal growls build a harsh contrast to some melodic guitar play, but soon the guitarists Daniel Leszkowicz and Asser Topp-Mortensen are back to firing heavy riffs at you. This song shows quite well why they are nominated for the Danish metal awards as 'talent of the year'. The last track is called About Words and here they add some distorted clean vocals which make this one stick out. I think they should work with varying vocals more often... But that's a matter of taste... Anyway, they present themselves very well and you can check them out on their MySpace or by downloading the album at!
