ARTIS­TIC AMER­I­CAN ALT.ROCK­ERS LURE YOU INTO THEIR DARK WORLD

■ WARN­ING:YOU’RE gonna need an at­ten­tion span here, plus an open mind. If you can tick those boxes, you’re prob­a­bly buoy­ant enough to swim in Sil­ver Snakes’ choppy wa­ters. Signed in the U.S. to Clau­dio Sanchez’ Evil Ink la­bel, there’s touches of the Co­heed And Cambria front­man’s genre-flip­ping wiz­ardry in De­vo­tion and Dres­den. Else­where, icy walls of gui­tar clash with elec­tron­ics and purring vo­cals build to de­spair­ing roars. Think of Lonely The Brave’s pic­ture-per­fect sad­ness mixed up with Killing Joke’s apoc­a­lyp­tic vol­ume. Just when you think it’s not pos­si­ble, Sil­ver Snakes pile on more lay­ers. Red Wolf cli­maxes in an­gry pokes of gui­tar, while Glass is one of the few tracks equipped with an ob­vi­ous hook – and, like most of this al­bum, it’s an ab­so­lute killer. DOWN­LOAD: Glass. FOR FANS OF: Deftones, No De­vo­tion.
