Quarter the Villain - Regicide

A maelstrom of blast beats, a pair of guitarists that churn out more arpeggios than Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen combined and vocals that switch between death metal bellows and high pitched screams can only mean one thing in this day and age: Deathcore.
With zero deviation from this formula, Quarter the Villain’s self-released EP reveals little other than an overbeaten deathcore sound that becomes tiresome after a while, but will probably impress fans of Veil of Maya and Born of Osiris.
There’re fifteen minutes of all kinds of chaotic and complex sounds that represent a hazard to neurons in the brain here, I mean not even if you take loads of Centrum you’ll be able to memorize two notes from the whirlwind of riffs and leads that makes “Regicide”. Final song "Sock Puppet Vendetta" is an exception though, mostly due to the waltz cadence at the end of the song, which is nicely complemented with the sounds of tubas and violins.
If you can withstand a tech-deathcore sound for more than fifteen minutes, maybe you should keep an eye on Quarter the Villain for future releases.
