Spinning Heads
Change the Game LP (Clear Vinyl) (Sedition Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Undoubtedly when you read reviews of this LP you are going to read comparisons to CAVE IN and ISIS and I wouldn't necessarily disagree with that but the band that keeps coming to my mind is KNUT although I would be the first to admit that SPINNING HEADS has a more unremitting delivery than KNUT. SPINNING HEADS has found a perfect balance between metal, hardcore, and grind. SPINNING HEADS also manages to incorporate a very progressive feel to their music so that the sum is somehow greater than the parts - those parts being glass-gargled vocals, staccato guitars set to kill, and blitzing rhythms. I can't quite put my finger on what it is that elevates this above 90% of the metalcore out there but it might be the unquestionably superior song writing and the absolutely vicious and unrelenting passion displayed on each and every track.
