Triverse Massacre is a United Kingdom based four-piece mixture of Melodic Death, Metalcore, Thrash Metal and Groove that formed in April of 2010. For 2014 they present With Bared Teeth and Truths, the follow-up to 2012’s four song EP In the Jaws of Deceit. But does this new effort cast the spotlight on the group, or does it show them gasping for air?

With Bared Teeth and Truths mixes those styles again well enough with a moderately crisp, slightly thinned audio quality. “Exhale Betrayal” has some tight Thrash Metal riffs that sum up the eighties perfectly while shifting to catchy Gothenburg-era hooks that are felt on “Bullets Kill Beasts” after a glorious battle-ready introduction. These two stand out the most following the unimpressive “Wolves at the Gates.” While a solid dose of hook filled Death Metal, there’s plenty of uninspiring breakdowns and single-chord chugging that the aforementioned audio quality leaves a lifeless heap, not to mention seems to go on forever. Even “Torn from the Throne” does a better job by putting some enthusiasm into the Hardcore heavy riffs with solid drum patterns to help fill things up, even in the breakdown about two minutes in. The raised volume of the bass guitar a minute later sounds great as well, though it’d be nice to hear it at this level all the time instead this brief section.

Really, With Bared Teeth and Truths isn’t that bad a release overall. Most of the complaints end up being cosmetic in the sense that the recording could have been a little richer, even for a self-financed effort. That bit aside, the material here does manage to stand out well enough, though “Wolves at the Gates” can definitely benefit from being trimmed down by a minute and a half or two. Since you can stream this entire effort through Triverse Massacre‘s official Bandcamp page before buying it for yourself, there’s no reason not to give With Bared Teeth and Truths a quick once over, even if it all does sound like it will translate better on stage than it does digitally.

02. Exhale Betrayal – 2:42
03. Bullets Kill Beasts – 4:48
