Highlights: The Weakest Spot, A Dying Heart
How would it sound like if you merged Metalcore breakdowns, the melody of Melodic Death , speedy shredding solos, the fluency of Nu-Metal, with aggressive, catchy hooks combined with raw vocals, modern riffs meeting traditional guitar solos, and powerful beats supported by a solid bass foundation with all that garnished with atmospheric synthesizers? German band, "All Will Know" have integrated all those sounds in their first studio release, "Contact."
The first time I listened to this band, I was at a lose for how to describe their music: was it Metalcore? Melodic Death? Or Nu-metal? Personally, I'd classify them under the genre, "Crossover" as they combine most Metal genres in their music .
Awesome clean vocals that hit great notes fuse with great success within the music line with the addition of interesting, rhythmic melodies in their tracks. Hypnotizing guitar riffs drives you to jump off your chair and start headbanging, most of the guitar riffs will force you to believe that "All Will Know " play Metalcore as in the tracks, "A Dying Heart" or "Mental Takedown."
The drum lines in this album will echo in your ears with aggression and rage, and will definitely satisfy your urge to headbang. These beats are mounted by a solid bass foundation that will sever your temper. Violent screams, and growling, that carry with it the Metalcore bite, completely dissipate your mind, making enough space for the explosion of notes to ensue. If you're into face-melting solos, then you might find what you're looking for in this album, with it's awesome solos and the great melodies between the guitar lines.
The first time I heard the track, "The Weakest Spot," I started thinking all over again about this band's genre and, as soon as I switched to the next track, "Static," I was completely baffled to the point where I began searching the internet looking for any information regarding All Will Know's musical genre. Overall, regardless of their genre, “Contact” is one album you can't afford not to listen to.
