Seneca - Reflections
Lifeforce Records to me is a very trustworthy label when it comes to releasing good albums. It’s a label that brought forward great names like Trivium, Heaven Shall Burn and Caliban and still holds bands like Raunchy and Burning Skies. With Seneca’s Reflections to be released soon, a new band is being welcomed to the ever growing roster of heavy bands. Let’s check out whether it’s a worthy one again.
 
Seneca plays the kind of deathcore/extreme metalcore that seems to have gained much popularity over the past years. Names like Bring Me The Horizon, The Eyes Of A Traitor, Glass Casket and Beneath The Sky pop up in my head immediately when hearing Reflections. It’s a style that’s not very new anymore, and a style that can’t be renewed very easily either. And that’s exactly where the main problem lies for these guys. Sure, they play heavy-as-fuck metal(core) with lots of breakdowns and a very angry vocalist. Even some progressive twists turn around the corner now and then.
 
Yeah, it all sounds nice and gives you a major kick in the nuts. But then again, I’ve heard it all before and you basically have the idea of what this band is capable of after hearing two or three of their songs. I don’t mean that in an insulting way, it’s just a fact.
 
So, I’ll keep it short for ya. If you like any of the bands mentioned above, Seneca will be a very welcome addition to your album collection. No doubts about that! If you don’t like those bands, skip this one. Don’t even bother to find something new on Reflections, ‘cause you won’t. Seneca is nice deathcore/extreme metalcore for fans of the genre and nothing more than that. Period.
