A BAND FROM SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN NOT CALLED THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER
Because sometimes our readers know best, here’s a track sent in by MetalSucks reader Joseph S. of the unsigned band Incisor, hailing from my one-time hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Apparently the band just released a new EP yesterday called Trendshitter, and — besides from getting awards in both the “awesome album name” and “awesome beards” departments — good God does it crush. Incisor’s 3-piece instrumental attack mixes elements of thrash, groove, tech-death and grind, but their sound is complex enough to be pigeonholed as neither. Through five damned years living in Ann Arbor all we got was Tally Hall; I’d’ve settled for a band with half the talent of Incisor. Sigh.
