Italian Metalcore outfit Cry Excess excite the senses with their upcoming release Vision, due April 24th via Bleeding Nose Records. The line up consists of, Jaxon V. on Vocals, Mark Agostini and Andrew V. on Guitar, Brain N. on Drums and backing vocal duties, and last but not least, Angie S. on Bass. This 5 piece truly are advocates of the Metalcore genre.
Though the Italians don’t do much to push the boat out into the wide, vast ocean that is the metalcore genre. They do bring something conventional, yet well done, and well assembled. They travel out deep enough to provide your ears with something packaged beautifully. It’s one solid, well rounded album, showing fierce energy and a harmonious balance of melody.
The track “Immortal” is the epitome of this bands excellence and demonstrates the extent and depth of their ability. Truly well crafted with synth and melodic yet heavy guitar passages, that resonate perfectly in tandem with the vocal delivery. Other notable entrances are “Survival” & “The Black Squad” – again, proving they are a force to be reckoned with.
Though the formula works effectively thus far, we encourage the collective at Cry Excess to even find greater self-identity in their sound in order to make an even greater and satisfying impact. Because everything ticks the boxes so far, showing great promise, turning heads 360 degrees until they snap.
Metalcore maybe extremely over saturated, but the safe bet played by Italy's finest show's their is breathing room. A well produced album and full of memorable, heavy moments.
