32 Leaves Welcome to the Fall

32 Leaves’ new album Welcome to the Fall is pretty much heavy muzak; you barely notice it when it’s there, it sounds familiar and its generally quite inoffensive. From the Maynard-esque proud, booming vocals to the generically aggressive guitars, 32 Leaves are pretty unremarkable. Bordering on nu-metal town, 32 Leaves have taken their lessons in intensity from the guidebooks of Disturbed or Staind. If it were up to me, I’d take the elevator music over this. (Double Blind)
