Review of Painside’s new EP – Build Your Fiction
The problem with the newest offering by Painside, Build Your Fiction is that it is phenomenal, rich in harmony and proof that new, vibrant and real talent in the Progressive Metal scene exists outside the traditional venues, but the album is way too short. I found myself wanting more; it was hard and fast and very, very good, but over way too soon.
Since the release of their first epic album Dark World Burden, an album full and powerful, with perfect resonance in both skill and meaning, this EP Build Your Fiction is a shot the music scene this country really needs. Originating from Brazil, I don’t believe any artists from that area since Sepltura has grabbed the attention of US fans as fast and as true.
Build Your Fiction could be a vision of things to come, lyrically sound and musically artful, Painside weaves thoughtful messages and dynamic harmonies together in tracks titled “A Caustic Romance”, “Break the Hive”, “Reject The Silence” and the epic “Unbreakable”, which was used as the entrance music for UFC Fighter Ronys Torres, these are four heart pounding songs that hit you like bolt of lightning and resuscitate your spirit.
I am going to seriously follow Painside’s development and news, bringing this fantastic group’s story to you as it develops; Painside is one strong import to have in your life.
If you have not yet heard their first album Dark World Burden, I suggest you get it now and see why I want to see more from this Brazilian Super Group !
