THE PARIAH

No Truth REDFIELD/SILENT CULT Im­pas­sioned nelodic met­al­core with all its rough edges in­tact

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Albums. Lives. Merch. - NIK YOUNG

It’s only been two years since this Ger­man melodic hard­core quin­tet dropped their Di­vided By Choice EP but they’ve al­ready se­cured telling sup­port from the scene. No Truth, their de­but full-length al­bum, fea­tures guest ap­pear­ances from Coun­ter­parts‘ Bren­dan Mur­phy on the first sin­gle, Surged, Alazka’s To­bias Ris­che for the po­lit­i­cally-charged Re­gres­sion, and 18 Miles’ Daan Nieboer for the mer­ci­less Com­fort Zone. Front­man Hen­ning Bege­mann’s vo­cals are hon­est and im­pres­sive through­out and there’s not a clean cho­rus to be found.

Some tracks are less mem­o­rable than oth­ers, but Silent Birds houses group shouts that should earn rowdy in­volve­ment from crowds and Stran­gled show­cases the smart mix of emo­tive sound­scapes and raw ag­gres­sion that make this band truly shine. The Pariah’s clenched teeth at­ti­tude and dy­namic en­ergy is po­tent and re­lent­less, while the al­bum pro­duc­tion hits the per­fect balance be­tween au­then­ti­cally gritty and pol­ished. This band have prom­ise by the buck­et­load. FOR FANS OF: MO­MENTS, CONVEYER, BE­ING AS AN OCEAN
