Model 101 - Demo
This demo I�m about to review is the band of our very own editor DemonDust, recently joined by Lukie. It will be pretty hard to review this one objectively, since I obviously hate that little prick, but I�ll do my very best!
The first track opens with a lovely violin intro, transforming in some marching sounds. I�m not completely sure what the use of it is, since it is a demo, but after a good minute a massive throw down kicks in. The drums build up a tension mainly based on the snare and the sound goes more towards Meshuggah-like bands. This is pretty much the recipe for the songs of Model 101; quite simple slow heavy riffs are alternated with more technical, complicated riffs. Here and there some synths flow in, in a way which reminds too much of Textures.

The production is already of a pretty high standard considering that this is just a home made demo; it has a nice fat and modern sound. They are helped by a drum computer, which is one of the reasons making it sound so fat, so we�ll have to see whether Richie can perform these complicated rhythms live. I heard some good stories about him and they�re just starting to do shows on a regular basis so we can check that out soon. On this very moment that I�m writing this review they are opening for Alchemist so that�s a pretty damn good start for them. Model 101 also has a good screaming bald guy at their disposal so altogether they�ve got good cards in their hands. They have peeked well at Meshuggah-like bands, so their sound is not too original, but it is of a high enough quality to check this one out. 

All the three songs on this demo are on their MySpace too by the way, so go take a look now!
