Sinai Beach
Immersed (Victory Records)

By: Jeb Branin

SINAI BEACH is a band that seems to channel the spirits of PANTERA and FEAR FACTORY but to their credit, they avoid sounding dated or retro. Instead they give their precise and driving sound a very contemporary vibe that owes a thing or two to the post-Y2K metalcore juggernaut. In the end the entire project is probably unlike anything you have heard before, although all of the various components will be very familiar. For a long time Victory Records hasn't been shy about releasing metal albums that only manage slight nods to the hardcore roots of the label but I gotta say that Immersed may be the most metallic album Victory has yet tackled. You will have to apply your own perspective to determine if that is a good thing or not, but old fart metalheads like me aren't complaining very loud.
