Review: Romans – All Those Wrists [2008]

amazon-romansVermont quartet Romans impactfully projects their geographical region’s well-known metallic sounds with much respect on their self-produced 12-track affair ALL THOSE WRISTS. Dabbling within the houses of Isis and Converge, this squad’s presentation contains a hybrid of equal parts sonic battering and crushing panoramic, as tracks like “Depths” and “Smear Merchant” are possessed with hardcore explosiveness while “Tidepool” takes the Quaalude plunge into haunting sludge metal. Capable of ripping through this multi-influenced attack with their unique slant intact while providing a condensed yet aurally rich blend of modern hardcore metal, Romans have made an impressive release that transcends the output of your garden variety heavy band. -Mike SOS
