Jacob R. Dring Great guitar work with brutal riffing and a surprisingly well-done ambient bridge before the final breakdown. Overall very enjoyable track, especially with the "gangsta" snippets.

Just as you think a thuggish hip-hop track is about to drop, we throw you into a world of metal confusion. Then it gets even heavier with 8-stringed weight of a djenty drop E tuning. Then some hero-metal leadwork stops off at a chill lounge for a few moments, pounds through a southern riff, and returns to even stranger downtuned dissonance. This builds immensely but morphs to your relief into a lovely rock ballad complete with another heroic lead. Then the familiar chorus returns and all is well.


All Coretastrophe tracks are instrumental... no lyrics!
