Vinyl Colour: colored Release: 2020 Label: PURE NOISE ENTERTAINMENT
Knocked Loose is the obvious evolution to decades of bands like Integrity, Disembodied, Botch, and others - total and complete integration between metal and hardcore into a singular, seamless entity. While some musical influences are easily identified - Pantera, Hatebreed, Obituary, and more - the band's palette and canvas has expanded by leaps and bounds, incorporating Gothenburg-style death metal (At The Gates, early In Flames), slam metal (Devourment, Dying Fetus), blood-thirsty thrash (Sodom, Kreator), black metal (Craft), and the mind-boggling complexity of latter, noisy hardcore like Snapcase and Bloodlet. Clocking in at a lean and mean 37 minutes and featuring guest vocals from Emma Boster of Dying Wish and Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die, "A Different Shade Of Blue" grabs the listener by the throat from the jump and slowly tightens that grip for the duration. Vinyl version includes digital download.
