Beckon E.P.

     
         
         
         
             
             
Beckon are a metal band from Scotland, citing Pantera, Lamb Of God, Black Label Society, Soilwork and Fear Factory as some of their influences.    
             
These influences can clearly be heard in this 3 song E.P. full of furious brutal heavy metal. 'God Inside' opens the E.P. in brutal fashion with a guitar sound not too dissimilar to Fear Factory and a superb near death growl vocal performance. Full of pace and brutal guitar riffs, this is an excellent opening song.    
             
'Another Apocalypse' begins with a slow almost acoustic intro before it rattles into life and pounds along with some awesome time changes.    
             
Final song, 'Dirty Ape' at nearly eight minutes long, shows how diverse this band can be by mixing a number of genres to create a wonderfully constructed aural delight. The song features both clean and near death growl vocals as it races towards a furious end.    
             
Overall, an impressive release from a band not afraid to display its diverse approach in establishing its own furiously brutal sound.
