Members reviews

I was excited by the initial announcement of a full length album release from Knives Out! The album was scheduled to be released in the fall of 2011 on the newly formed Razor To Wrist Records where Todd Smith and Jasan Stepp created a platform for all of their future Polkadot Cadaver/Dog Fashion Disco-related projects.

Even though it took the band another few month to complete the album and release it on February 14, 2012, I'd say that it was the time well spent. "Black Mass Hysteria" has managed to carefreely climb on top of my list of this year's best records and I'm pretty sure that it will remain in the top 5 for the remainder of this year!

Even though four out of these nine tracks have been previously featured on the band's 2010 "Rough Cuts" EP, I definitely can see how much these compositions have gained from a polished re-recording. "Surrounded By Demons" and "Pink On The Inside" sound even more brutal here than they ever did before while the rest of the new material doesn't disappoint either. I especially like "Hysteria", which reminds me a lot of Mike Patton projects like Tomahawk and really puts a great memorable edge to this album.

I can definitely recommend this album to fans of heavy groove metal with a twist of art metal added to the mix. I'm sure that the rest of you will at least find it memorable enough to mention it on your list over best releases from 2012, so you might as well give it a spin or two!
