CD Review: Mask of Virtue-In This World(2012)



Debut album is available:
May 21, 2012


The Yorkshire-based band formed in 2009 and have spent the last two years writing and recording and gigging the length and breadth of the UK: frontman Joe Rosser is renowned for his on-stage energy, and the occasional burst of dubstep into the set genuinely make every gig a party!These five youngsters are hard-working and fresh - just what the UK metal scene has been waiting for…(Bands Bio)



Techno rockers Mask of Virtue debut with an album that without all the synths & keyboards could have been a much stronger album. The screaming continues as does the melodic harmonies I was quite impressed with their versatility in the vocals-makes for an interesting listen as you cannot predict what voice he will use next.


.
Here is a sampling of what their album sounds like.
About midway through however allot of this is somewhat sounding similar and that's OK for a new band but they have some songs that are strong like the first song "Antagonistic  Nations" & "Blood For Free"  but some of the songs are slower and they sound better as a band when they blast it out in your face  music.

Overall I enjoyed it but some parts not so much.

Thank you for reading this
