Drowning “23”

Quite possibly being considered the Hed PE of the hardcore community, Drowning follow up 2016’s Egotrip, which was an odd blend of beatdown and nu-metal, to deliver a strange record that seems to highlight crossover elements aimed at attracting a more alternative crowd. There are peak moments of aggression, when the band is unified and deliver crushing breakdowns that are instant pit activators. But then moments of juvenile delivery take the spotlight, and detract from the band’s moments of glory. This may be a strategic move however, to attract kids who’ve been on the fence between the breakbeat and alternative, but it certainly doesn’t come without baggage that may be a little too painstaking for some to handle. Check it out for yourself, if anything you’ll hear something new.
