Memoir Of A Massacre will be releasing their latest EP Images March 5th. Having never heard this band before I've been taking a little longer with the review than I usually do. It is a well crafted collection of high energy music. They've mastered that art of their craft. Being a guitar player I especially enjoyed double guitar work which will benefit them greatly during their live performances.

The rhythm section of the band is tight. The drumming is exciting and not boring. The bass lines are pretty tight as well. My favorite song on the EP is "House of the Wicked" even if it does fall in line with some old school Korn dashed with a guitar solo. But compared to the rest of the album it is one of the more diverse songs. 

"Possession" is another interesting song. The vocalist showcased in this song is beyond insane and a bit too quirky at times but in a weird way it all seems to work. 

Over all this isn't a bad album, great musicianship. Is it something you've never heard? No. But that doesn't make the band a bad band. They are excellent at what the do. I do look forward to future releases. I'd like to see how they grow from one album to the next. So go give them a listen and judge for yourselves. It won't be a waste of time.

3 out of 5 stars!
