Maroon - The Cold Heart Of The Sun

Century Media, 2007, CD, Vinyl

Quite a brutal and heavy sound here.

Not really sure what genre it fits in as it has elements of different things.

The thing that gets me about some of these bands that veer towards the mainstream metal sound is that it can sound cliched or ham-fisted slightly. Like a parody almost. Especially with the vocals. Like in how they are supposed to sound serious and real and heavy and absolute edge-of-sanity-dark-night-of-hell-endless-misery but in actual fact they sound comical. This happens a lot with these bands but a lot of metalheads don't get that. It's a fine line. This is getting close to that but it's pretty decent stuff and sounds genuinely quite real and sick most of the time.

For me, this is as good as anything on Century Media I heard recently.
