I've been hooked into a new loud music PR company for the last couple of months (as if you couldn't tell by what's been reviewed). One of the things I love is that the rep gives every band a unique genre listing. Escaping Amenti is "apocalyptic metalcore." And, yeah, that just about sums it up.
And that's about it. These songs throttle through at a high tempo and maximum volume, with both shouted and sung vocals (just like FF), and every once in a while it becomes necessary to remember to breathe.
The tableau is laden with goodies, and the feast is sumptuous. Escaping Amenti is something like a metal greatest hits package, combining some of the best sounds of the last 30 years with meticulously-crafted songs. Metal for metalworkers. Or something silly like that. In any case, adrenaline is not a problem here. The issue is keeping the heart rate from going febrile.
