This is the first time I heard this band, really the first time ever. Not much information I’ve got about this band, so I need to send multiple email to this band to get more info.
First impression, ..this band is cool…and their music are really cool. The EP of Loathe’s Lamb’s To The Slaughter containing 5 tracks. The track listing of Lambs To The Slaughter :
1. Watch The Children Prey
3. A Glow So Haunting
5. Mission : Down
Lambs To The Slaughter produce by David Vella at Temple Studios.
This EP start with the track Watch The Children Prey. Drum intro is open this track, and then you will drowning into the heavy metal riffs and vocals. As for my every review. I always said about the specific tunes or earmark. That will make your sound different from the other band. And this is important, so it is easy for fans to remember each songs.
The vocal on each songs are so heavy, authenticate the pure death metal or heavy metal bands. It is thick
The entire Lambs To The Slaughter tracks confirmed that Loathe stick with the pure metal riffs, great vocals, great arrangement. The best thing that a band should keep in an album is how they can keep the “energy” of the entire album, and Loathe can do it better.
The next song is Guttermouths, its another great song, i don,t know why, but i like the intro of this song.
A Glow So Haunting remind me the sound of Cradle Of Filth’s Nymphetamine album and Dillinger Escape Plan.
Bucketlove, yes..i agree, this track deserve to receive a hit single. This song is totally awesome. Listen this song with your headphone, and imagine you are in the middle of moshpit.
If you are a fans of Dillinger Escape Plan or fans of Suffocation or fans of Cradle Of Filth you have to buy this EP.
As this is their first album or EP that i ever heard, so i can not make a comparison with the previous album.
The last song on the list of this EP is Mission : Down. Speed thick sound, good vocals, this is what you can found on every Loathe’s tracks in this EP.
The way they arrange their music is so cool, great composition.
i personally like this album.
This EP is Recommended, 5 point highest, this EP deserve 4 point.

note : If I could give advice for this band, maybe it’s good if they improve the quality of their sound recordings
