Chasing The Coroner - "Sleep When You're Dead" Review

Arist: Chasing The Coroner
Album: Sleep When You're Dead
Genre: Deathcore

Chasing The Coroner's debut album hits February 28th, 2012. Total Deathcore got an exclusive first look at this album. CTC is a 4 piece from Wheeling, WV that formed in 2010. They were your normal deathcore/metal band until a line-up change, brought in Alex Wright on vocals. You may be asking yourself, "What's so special about Alex?" Alex is a woman, and she absolutely kills it.

I know what you're all thinking, though. And no, this isn't a iwrestledabearonce rip-off. They are nothing like IWABO, in fact. CTC just makes heavy music and none of the filler you find in IWABO. It is simply 12 tracks of pure mayhem and brutality. The only track they could have done without, in my opinion, is a remix track they did. It just doesn't fit in with the rest of the album.

While the actual writing may not bring anything innovative to the table, it is by no means bad. They aren't trying to disguise it either, which is refreshing. CTC just wants to come in and rip you face off. It's low tuned. It's dissonant. It has a lot of breakdowns, some they may even feel forced. And I am perfectly okay with this. Their music does exactly what they wanted it to do.

Keep an eye out for Chasing The Coroner's debut album, "Sleep When You're Dead", which drops on February 28th, 2012. If you're into belligerent breakdowns and low tunings, this album is for you. It does not focus on extreme technicality that other bands do. They just focus on being heavy, and in my opinion, are pretty damn good at it.

Favorite Track: Less Than A Dollar
Rating: 4/5
