Switchtense: 10 Unbreakable Years (CD/DVD)

Let me just start off by saying that groove metal does not appeal to me at all. All of the genre's trappings just bug me, especially the tough-guy posturing that goes along with it. And, although I've liked the occasional Lamb of God or Pantera song, as a whole I detest the genre.

Now, that being said, Portuguese band Switchtense are shockingly good at what they do as they have it all-The chugging rhythms, the posturing and the defiance that seems to be part and parcel of groove metal. In short, it's everything I hate about the music and everything the fans love. This album/DVD captures the band live and really shows how they could potentially rise to the top of the genre.

If you like this stuff change my score to a 4/5 and check it out. Otherwise stay far away.
