Vernon of Persia hails from San Antonio, Texas with a solid backing behind them already. The outfit has stuck to self-producing and self-releasing their own material, dropping their debut effort Relativity Of back in February of 2017. Since then the group has been focusing on establishing themselves through live performances, having shared the stage with headlining acts ranging from As I Lay Dying and Suicide Silence all the way to Miss May I and Silent Planet according to the accompanying press release. Three years later and they present their latest, a six song recording dubbed Ascend. But does this melodic act live up to the expectations, or have they grown away from what made them stand out in the first place?
Originally formed as Waster back in 2006, Sweden’s Reveal took their black/thrash metal inspirations and ran in a fairly different direction over time. The four-piece act established themselves as a mixture of those staples, but with a hint of psychedelic rock and experimentation, leading to the underground success that was their second full-length effort Flystrips through Sepulchral Voice Records. Fast forward three years and we now face their third studio album, Scissorgod, which appears to change things up a little more. But are some of these diversities worth it, or does this actually take a step back from what the group is capable of?
