ten56. - Downer
If you missed out on Aaron Matts' phenomenal screams when he was in Betraying the Martyrs, it's not too late! Aaron's come back in full-force with this relatively new act, ten. 56. This record has everything you could ask from a heavy modern metal album. Moments of low-tuned trudging through an auditory abyss, upbeat 2-step hardcore anthems, aggressive hip-hop influence, lyrics that tackle darker subject matter, and almost every sound effect you could make on a guitar. Most songs averaging just under 3 minutes, these songs don't overstay their welcome and will have you coming back to mosh over and over again.
