Conglomerate of extreme styles ranging from metalcore, deathcore and thrash
New Jersey act Cranely Gardens released their first debut, the 'Locust Valley' EP, in 2015. Now they release the follow-up, a seven-track EP called 'House of Decay'. It's one of the coolest album covers we've seen this year and has plenty of firepower to backup the bold artwork. It is a conglomerate of extreme styles ranging from metalcore, deathcore and thrash. While sometimes a little contrived, overall the EP has plenty of energy, riffage, double-bass and break-downs to please the new generation of US metal fans. I'd be interested in a bit more melody injected into the arsenal.
