Review: Llynch – We Are Ghosts [2008]

amazon-llynchGerman quintet Llynch pulled out the stops while comprising their latest album WE ARE OUR GHOSTS. This 10-track disc oozes with post-hardcore grit and champions atmospheric alternative metal elements, as cuts like “Athena” recollect the wares of Handsome and Quicksand while the jagged “If It Ain’t Rotten, It Ain’t Mine” scours the underbelly to unearth the sounds of Will Haven and Unsane. Off-kilter yet retaining a sense of melody a la Deftones, Llynch does a bang-up job juxtaposing  pristine tones and jarring dissonance within a crushing metallic assault that fans of left of center metal can easily identify with. www.bastardized.net -Mike SOS
