I like lasagne, pizza and many other Italian things and a new thing from Italy that I have recently discovered are the metal outfit Cry Excess. Cry Excess have recently released their debut album Ambition Is The Shit which I’ve had the pleasure of listening to a handful of times this week.
Cry Excess bring something that the metal and hardcore scene has been lacking for a while and that’s the fun element. Yes the music is serious and the vibe is intense but with a handful of dance like samples between songs and some tongue in cheek lyrics Cry Excess are putting their own spin on abrasive music.
I say it all the time when reviewing this style of band but it is in no way meant as an insult but Cry Excess are not reinventing the wheel as this music has been dished out for decades but they are very much giving it their own spin. 7.7/10
