When Reasons Collapse – Full Of Lies

When Reasons Collapse Promo shot

Hailing from Paris, When Reasons Collapse brings their own inventive take on deathcore with the release in the UK of their Full Of Lies EP. Aligning melodic death metal and metal core into a potent enterprise, the French quintet through the seven tracks making up the release, whilst not standing as a unique presence in the genre and the wealth of new metalcore cored bands around, bring more than enough to suggest it is only a matter of time before they step into that type of stature whilst simultaneously raising strong appetite for their debut album due in 2014.

Formed five years ago, When Reasons Collapse has built a strong presence and reputation at home, a pair of two self-produced EPs earning critical and fan acclaim alongside as their explosive live performances. Now the band has its sights on the British metalcore scene and it is fair to say you would not bet against them making the same strong impression even amongst the amount of similarly clad bands already trying to seduce the passions here. With a sound seeded from the likes of Heaven Shall Burn, All Shall Perish, and The Black Dahlia Murder, and fronted by the great squalling tones of Christina, it makes for an instantly intriguing and satisfyingly rewarding proposition.

It is unlikely that Full Of Lies has enough to truly set the band apart right now even as good as it is, but as the septet of brutally When Reasons Collpase - Cover Artworkconfrontational and imaginative songs take their swipe at the senses it sparks the suggestion that their album has potential to if it evolves the strong and pleasing groundwork found on the EP. Starting with Another Beginning the release teases at first, the opening instrumental not really true indication of things to come for newcomers but certainly an accomplished and hue soaked welcome that awakens the senses and imagination ready for the following onslaught firstly brought by Another End. The track takes a mere moment to offload testy riffs and antagonistic rhythms all primed to welcome the emerging carnivorous core of the song and the caustic vocals of Christina. Her tones have a Krysta Cameron (ex-Iwrestledabearonce) persuasion about them and lie perfectly within the metallic malevolent tempest crafted by the excellent guitar work and bass predation. It is a striking start if not exactly a full enslavement of the passions but one which already marks the band as one to offer full attention to.

The following Wounded seizes the brief pause between tracks to brew up a similar but individual enough torrent of raging riffs and barbarous rhythms again ridden roughshod by the excellent vocals. Like its predecessor the track also finds nothing to lift it above its companion or other creatively like-minded bands yet with the fine guitar craft and venomous intensity there is nothing to lose hunger over or dismiss. That wanted uniqueness is found in its successor though, the exceptional Made Of Stone. Pissed off from its first second with vocals and rhythms searing and punishing the senses respectively and the guitars bringing their own corrosive fascination, the song just draws on greater strength and accelerates its qualities with each passing press of time. Contagious and demanding the track slips into a midway lumbering gait which with a weight as greedy as the rapacious attack seems to ignite something deep within band and song with the sound finding even greater maliciousness amid a richer blaze of vocals from Christina and band that is enthralling and diverse.

Will To Die and the title track rip into the ear with crippling drum provocation and sonic entanglement stalked by the strong if not jaw-dropping bass sound. The first of the two never settles into a single or determined intent instead pleasingly leaping around with inventive and unpredictable imagination whilst the second casts a vindictive and ravenous expanse of vitriolic fascination around the riff and rhythmically sculpted savagery leading to even stronger assumptions about the promise and future of the band, though the pair of songs still fall below that central pinnacle of the release.

The scathing barbarous fury of Walkers In The Dark completes the EP in red-blooded style as the band unveils more scalding sonic craft and belligerent attitude. It seals the confirmation that When Reasons Collapse is a real force in the making and Full Of Lies despite not pushing the band to heights above others, one thrilling and promising release.
