Molotov Solution The Harbinger

Molotov Solution The Harbinger
The sound of deathcore is pretty formulaic these days: pummelling drums, aggressive vocals and breakdowns galore. With their latest release, and Metal Blade debut, Molotov Solution have chosen to heed this formula, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Although the Las Vegas, NV band's style of song writing isn't unique, their execution and musicianship make up for it, and almost make you forget that this band used to be considered grindcore during their inception in 2004. The Harbinger is simple to follow and gets to the point right away with "Warlords," following through with straight-up, groove-based deathcore until the album's end. Mixed by Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying and mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Music (God Forbid, Shadows Fall, the Acacia Strain), it's ultimately the production on The Harbinger that takes the band's sound from mediocre to decent.
