Basement Critters God Save Us As .Jpeg Album Review
Basement Critters are a Belgian metallic hardcore band who recently dropped their latest album, God Save Us As.Jpeg via WormHoleDeath.
Basement Critters take hardcore back to the 90s with their aggressive guitars and vocals that don’t have the same energy as their current counterparts. The band does have an eye for detail when it comes to the guitars, which is a major focus on the album.
The album God Save Us As.Jpeg sees the band tackle the negative influence of technology on our lives. The messages, however, sometimes get lost with the vocals, being too aggressive. The anger at times feels insincere and just a product of the genre. Where Basement Critters sign is when they combine that aggression, with melodic sections. On the tracks Hero, Lucifer, and Gadget Generation the band shine from their lyrics to their sound.
God Save Us As.Jpeg by Basement Critters is an okay but not great album. There is protentional from them when they expand what hardcore can be and are sincere in their execution. Highlights are Hero and Gadget Generation. I can see a future for them in the music scene if they continue to focus on what they’re passionate about.
