Invader 2012 Review

Invader: Invader

Some Kind of Metal
2.0/5.0

Whatever this is, I don't like it. A jumble of thrash metal, speed metal, punk, hardcore, hardcore and death vocals. Best guesses.

Above, Invader: go nuts.

Hailing from Pittsburgh, Invader's debut is hybrid bird, but mostly a cacophony of discordance. There's little or no harmony or melody here; you know, those things that define what music is. Lyrically speaking, it's an avenue for sociopolitical diatribes against culture, religion, and politics. Two interesting notes: first, Never Wanted to Kill You More may sound like a punk song and, two, the art work is quite clever.

While best for giving you a headache when listening, this disc may have a greater use. The American military can play Invader the next time they want to evict some fascist dictator from his palatial estate. Guaranteed he'll come out crawling on hands and knees by the third song, or before. Otherwise, play loud, annoy the neighbors, and destroy your brain. Just kidding. Or not?






In Short

Some strange harsh hardcore metal hybrid useful for driving a fascist dictator out of his palace.
