Overcome - Blessed Are The Persecuted

Solid State, 1996, CD, Vinyl

This is more classic metalcore in the vein of Chokehold, Unbroken, Indecision, Culture etc. The production isn't the worst and the band have a decent sound with some sick songs. Seeing such a thing live would have been an experience. The lyrics have a Christian focus I think.
The riffs sound evil ironically, but we all know that evil on that level is not really evil, just part of the whole job. They have all the right parts in the mix and the singer sounds like he damaged his throat just to make this record. I prefer Morning Again if I choose a band in this style, but this is up there with the best from that era.
