Murder One - Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid
Featuring members of Iron Monkey and Pulkas, I was looking forward to “Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid” from Murder One. The band also features a familiar voice; John Loughlin from Raging Speedhorn was added to the band after show which had him as a guest vocalist. Apparently the guys liked that enough to ask him to join the band on a permanent basis.
 
Murder One’s  bio describes the music as a mix between Metallica, Slayer & Pantera, mixed with modern bands as Slipknot and System of a Down. Well, I can say that that doesn’t make sense at all. The closest thing I can come up with is (unsurprisingly) Raging Speedhorn and fellow Brits Beecher, and maybe some traces of Norma Jean. Somehow rooted in nu-metal with some hardcore and metalcore vibes and a lot of screaming, Murder One sounds like a jackhammer to your head. The pace is pretty much consistent throughout the whole disc, which might lead to a monotone feel if it’s not your kind of thing since it’s harsh and sometimes chaotic music.
 
As already said, the band unfortunately loses itself in the straight on assault on your eardrums. Some more differences in tempo or using some intros could have spiced this disc up a bit. As a first record it’s decent, let’s hope that we can find some more creative writing on the follow-up.
