Spineshank
Strictly Diesel (Roadrunner Records)

By: Geoff Melton

Thanks to a bit of a guiding hand from Dino Cazares, guitarist from labelmate Fear Factory, who in addition to being a major influence also invited them to open their California show with Coal Chamber, Spineshank have burst forth with an impressive debut that blends high intensity metal with an electronic edge. Although comparisons to the largely groundbreaking sound of the aforementioned Fear Factory are inevitable, Strictly Diesel finds this youthful four-piece moving in a more melodic groove than most bands following this path, giving them more of an emotional edge, but never finding them lacking intensity and heaviness.
