THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES
TAIL SWALLOWER AND DOVE
SUICIDE SQUEEZE

For their third offering, Seattle Metalcore dynamos These Arms Are Snakes (formed from ashes of the highly influential Botch) flirt with the cranking build and release dynamics that R.A.T.M perfected. Yet more proof of Seattle’s newfound eclecticism and increasing momentum, Tail Swallower And Dove is a scattershot but highly determined album of daringly staged tunes, with terrific fun is to be had as a song’s apex will spill over into awesome uproar. Of special note is vocalist Snere’s hyperventilated incantations, stirring from submission to derangement to an all-out rightous meltdown, launched of the back of his band’s brilliantly sustained tension. Unfortunately all the explosiveness of the first act retreats into dystrophy towards the end. Still, there’s crossover potential here.

7/10
