Every Time I Die, 'The Big Dirty' (Ferret)

6
The Big Dirty
Critical Mass
Label: Ferret

by Andrew Earles

This Buffalo, New York quartet's metalcore sound owes more to classic-rock party grooves than the Swedish death-metal scare tactics that many of their contemporaries ran into the ground a couple years back -- think razor-sharp guitars, as opposed to thick, D-tuned riffing. There's also more melody than on 2005's Gutter Phenomenon, with legit choruses behind Keith Buckley's screams (no childish growling, thankfully). Every Time I Die's rhythmic looseness and sense of humor (sample song title: "Buffalo Gals") actually threaten to bust them out of their sometimes constrictive genre.
