Brotherhood Of The Lake - Brotherhood Of The Lake
Brotherhood Of The Lake is a typical Glasstone Records band. They hail from the U.K., Plymouth in this particular case, they play metalcore and it’s a band with relatively young members. After reviewing a couple of Glasstone bands I know by now that most of those bands are equally great (or shitty as you may call it) and that there are only a few bands that stand out. Let’s see what BOTL has in store for us with their self-titled EP.

This EP has five songs on it and those tracks should be five of their finest to date, since forming two-and-a-half years ago. They say they’re influenced by Slayer and Converge amongst others. For a metal band it’s impossible (or at least very hard) not to be influenced by Slayer, but musically it isn’t audible. Saying the music is influenced by bands like Converge is on the other hand a better way to describe BOTL’s music.

Looking at the songs individually I can conclude that the first four songs don’t have anything other bands don’t have. Those songs will probably do well live, but when it’s coming through the speakers of my laptop it can’t convince me. The last song on the EP, ‘This Glorious Fall’ does impress me though. The track is the most diverse one and that makes it also the most interesting and best song. When this EP would contain five tracks like ‘This Glorious Fall’ I would be very stoked to hear or see more of them. With the four other ones in my mind I know I will be able to live my life without the music of this five-piece though.
