Equal Minds Theory are a band from Russia that plays a mixture of noise, grindcore math metal and post hardcore and this is a review of their self titled 2011 album which was released by Octupus Management.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the noise effects bring a very dark and avant garde sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful tone with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine noise and grindcore with post hardcore and math metal with alot of many different time changes being thrown into the riffing and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording except for the last song and it haves a blues rock feeling to it., as for the acoustic which are only utilized briefly they use full chords to bring a very experimental avant garde edge to the music.
Vocals range from high pitched noise/grindcore screams to hardcore style yelling, deep death metal growls and melodic post hardcore parts, while the lyrics cover philosophical and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Equal Minds Theory are a very great sounding noise, grindcore, math metal, post hardcore hybrid and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Oceanbound" "The Nomads" "Grindiac" and "Hollows Earth". RECOMMENDED BUY.
