Memphis May Fire: Sleep Walking

Memphis May Fire: Sleep Walking

Metalcore/Hardcore
Rating: 3.5/5.0

Memphis May Fire comes straight out of Dallas, Texas to release their first album, Sleep Walking. The album focuses on the general post-hardcore/metalcore style, which will certainly please fans of the genre. Sleep Walking doesn't contain anything that will set the world on fire but everything is well made and finely produced. Something I found extremely surprising is that the album seems to have almost no filler. Each song seems as equally good as the last one, an amazing find in most metalcore albums. Each instrument is portrayed very well throughout the album, once again showing the overall quality Sleep Walking.

However, the only thing bogging the band down is the simple fact they're in an over saturated market. It's impossible not to trip over all the metalcore in the music industry right now and unless a band does something astoundingly different, I'll still say you've heard it all before. Memphis May Fire brings nothing new to the table and you can hear something just like them anywhere else. However, this I not to diminish the overall quality of the album.

Sleep Walking is the same metalcore you've already heard. The boys of Memphis May Fire have a lot of talent. If they could use that talent to break the mold and try something different, we'd see something spectacular.

In Short

Sleep Walking is the same metalcore you've already heard. The boys of Memphis May Fire have a lot of talent. If they could use that talent to break the mold and try something different, we'd see something spectacular.
