Review by Wade Speer

Columbus, Ohio based hardcore band Beartooth are releasing a new album titled Disease this Friday September 28 via Red Bull Records/UNFD.

I’m going to be straight forward here and say I didn’t enjoy the album all that much as I thought I would. Definitely a big sound change compared to their previous albums. Which isn’t a bad thing at all, bands need to grow and release what they want to.

There’s definitely a few songs I dig on the album like “Bad listener”, “Manipulation” and “Enemy” which has their hard hitting beat that I love. I feel that his vocals are too soft in a lot of songs to suit their hardcore-style and definitely doesn’t scream as much.

Even the songs I do enjoy, I feel there’s just something missing out of the Beartooth I’m used to. The music is a bit slower than usual as well. But the bloke does an incredible vocal range and I can’t bag them for doing what they love.

In conclusion, I wouldn’t say not to listen to the album as I’m sure a lot of people would enjoy it. It’s probably a bit like Parkway Drive fans going from Horizons to Reverence. It’s still Beartooth but just a bit toned down.

5 out of 10.
