Furor: Blind Faith Revolver

The third release from Greek Metalcore-Deathcore grinders Furor comes in the form of Blind Faith Revolver, an album that proves this band have what it takes to fit right into a scene that is already positively bursting at the seams with acts trying to stand out. Therefore it's not too surprising that it is this very issue which Furor will need to overcome if they are to take their undeniably convincing attempts on tried and trusted ideals beyond the shores of Greece. Although having this album appear from the Metal Hammer Greece label isn't exactly a bad start. Neither it has to be said is the Robert DeNiro samples introduction to "Ω", which begins proceedings in a typically aggressive, snarling spit of angst. Pretty fine it is too, guitars blazing, vocals throat shredding yet surprisingly cultured in places, double kicking drums double kicking for all their worth.

Yet for all the opening salvo suggests something that's going to make you sit up and spit your coffee on the dog, nothing else on BFR smacks home with quite the same conviction or power and from "Stinkhole Loaded" to "Black To Gray" through "Eye Sea" and "Undress Your Face" the lack of variety and individuality really does begin to become an ever increasing issue. Not that any of those songs fall into the category marked substandard, it's just that they don't really illicit much of a reaction at all as they whizz past in the same way as what has come before.

"Nothing For You" does manage to catch the ear, possibly through a more traditional Metal collision of riff and attitude and "T.R.A.S.S." is catchy in a disease ridden kind of way. Yet the overriding emotion remains one of been there done that. Three albums in and Furor need to progress beyond the safety of the genre boundaries in which they currently reside. If they can, then there's no denying they could go the distance. As it is….?
