Greyscale
Discord for the Dead Kid (Battle Born)

By: Mike SOS

Greyscale is a Reno, NV based quintet transplanted from Long Island, NY whose 10-track release presents an intriguing mixed bag of musical styles, with hard and heavy ultimately winning out. Despite the decibel level being tested, these guys are deep-rooted in the dub and drum and bass aspect of music, as most of DISCORD FOR THE DEAD KID's tracks display an undercurrent of the aforementioned styles. Sounding at times like a cross between Dredg, Nonpoint, and Skindred, tracks like "Get At" and "Searching for Substance" reveal a clash between chugging guitars and groove-laden rhythms, while the dub-esque feel of "New Beat" showcases an adventurous side of the group. For a mix of chunk and funk swung with a ten-ton hammer, Greyscale's latest disc is as solid as it gets.
