PostReview:Design the Skyline-Nevaeh

Hi guys!

I'm here today to do a review of Design the Skyline's official debut, Nevaeh. Now, Design the Skyline is infamous in the metal world for releasing one of the worst metal songs of all time, Surrounded by Silence, earlier this year. This song was so bad, many people immediately called DTS the worst hand ever. If you haven't heard it already, here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViSZI6UJEUQ

So after hearing that, I expected this album to totally awful; I was wrong. DTS has pulled a Waking the Cadaver and have DRASTICALLY improved. This album sounds nothing like the atrocity that was Surrounded by Silence. But does that make it a good album?

This album is one that features everything from technical riffing to songs that sound like they'd be done by ADTR. Guitar work on some songs is absolutely fantastic, on other songs it's just average. Same thing for bass and drums. When the band wants to, it can create some very impressive song writing and riffing, but however they don't do it enough and the album really suffers thanks to songs like Let Go of Your Life (or something close to that title, I don't remember the exact name.), that offer nothing good.

But the worst part of this album is the vocals. They are really, REALLY bad. They feature pig squeals, and that is just something I absolutely hate. Not only that but the actual screams and growls are just.....weak. They definitely need to improve, cause it really held this album back. Oh, and they need to lose the autotune on the cleans. Didn't really dig that either.

Pros:Some guitar work is fantastic.
Definite improvement over Surrounded by Silence

Cons:Vocals SUCK
Album is very inconsistent
Little replay value

All in all this is an album of purely wasted potential. On the instrumental tracks and the song Destroyer the band really shows what they're capable of, however outside of that they never put it to use. Still, 5 good songs on a 10 track coming from this band is impressive. So DTS does show some promise, and they may be capable of releasing something really good in the future. 5/10

Thats it for now guys. Until next time...

Music is just like candy, you throw away the rappers.

I once told a girl I loved her more than music. I lied.
