Subsource – Generation Doom EP
Posted by Hunter on Wed, 01 Aug 2012.
Somebody just took Pendulum and Linkin Park and mashed them together with added "wub", aka Dubstep. Is it obvious I'm not really sold on the whole dubstep scene? Truthfully, when Generation Doom was winging it's way from me, I saw the word Dubstep mentioned, and my heart sank. I'm not a fan of Skrillex, but I do enjoy Pendulum, so what about Subsource?
Molotov is a pretty apt title for what is a devastating opening track, with an explosive mix of guitars, "wub" and bass, totally took me by surprise. Ok, it did have the "then all of a sudden, nothing" intro where it builds to this immensely promising crescendo, followed by an awkward silence, but when the track properly kicks in, it works. It damn well blows out your speakers. True, the chord progressions of the "guitars" is hardly scintillating, but the delivery surely is.
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
Final track "Kill The Thief" for me has moments where the "wubiness" perhaps goes a little over the top and loses me, but thankfully heads back into something more musically recognisable for me. I now have to hang my head in shame, shuffling awkwardly in my shoes a little, and admit it, I actually really enjoyed this stormer of an EP. There I said it. I hope you're pleased with yourselves.
