Total Devastation - Wreck Review

by Mike Rapin

Deep, hard, dark, metal. This is Total Devastation's Wreck. There is no other way to really describe such brutal music. I mean, the distortion, the double-bass pedal, the screams, the pinch harmonics, the everything; pure metal.

Now, I must mention the subtle keyboards here and there on Wreck, for they are apparent on some songs, but they only make the music better. I will admit, I do like some metal with keyboards... in fact; I like a lot of it. Total Devastation gives their music that extra edge by adding in the extra background keyboards only because it makes things sound that much more epic.

Many of the songs on this album feel almost metalcore-ish, or maybe deathcore-ish, but add more metal and death behind things and you get the idea. Much of this album is compiled of some cool riffs, sweet drum beats, backing keys, and, of course, some deep screaming vocals. The vocals, by the way, are quite kick ass and should be noted...definitely.

For a end-of-review paragraph, I will say that a lot of Wreck is crazy distortion and palm muting. On top of that, the blast beats and double bass is almost overwhelming, but very, very awesome. Total Devastation breaks the glass that is mediocre and decides to weld a black crystal ball of sheer metal in it's place. A great album if you're into that deathcore stuff, or if you appreciate good metal altogether.
