THE GREEN RIVER BURIAL is a German band from Frankfurt and formed in 2008. After releasing a demo in mid 2009 the band released their self-produced EP in February 2010, titled Means To An End, and now the have put out their debut album, Separate & Coalesce.
They say that their music is hardcore / deathcore, I say that it’s metalcore and there’s nothing wrong with that because there really isn’t much in the way of hardcore on here at all. You get the growling, deep vocals, chugging guitars, thumping drums and rumbling bass work of metal core, so don’t be ashamed to call it that. Now that we have that settled, let’s get a bit deeper, shall we? These guys carry off the metal pretty well, lots of cool breakdowns going on played by Mo, along with the growling vocals by Mert, we have a bit of clean vocals mixed in, the drumming by Tom and the bass from Phil are also done really well and they succeeded in getting my foot tapping and getting into the songs more as the album played. There is a nice instrumental track just over half way through the album that lets the band show of a bit of a different, more mellow sound that was a nice treat.
I really thought they did a great job on here and really liked it a lot more than I thought that I would. These guys have put out an album that should get the metalcore fans out there and buy it and go see them if they come around your neighborhood.
