Despite Exile - Re-evolve

Despite Exile - Re-evolve (2012) Independent
Produced by Despite Exile
Tracks : 1.Oscillate 2.Perfection neutralized 3.Mechanical
2,5 out of 5

The Italian 5 piece Despite Exile released their debut album "Scarlet Reverie" in 2011 and follow up with the brand new 3 track EP "Re-evolve" this year, they call their sound as progressive deathcore and I think it´s a good way to describe it. The band is tight and they´ve got a massive sound no doubt but many riffs soundalike and I can´t seperate track 2 from track 3. But the opener "Oscillate" is really powerful and I like the nuances in the guitar harmonies here. Perhaps a change in tempo and key will do the trick for these guys when they release the next album?
