In this case, the vocals are brutal. So is the music. The whole thing is a massive slap in the face, combined with a firm kick in the nuts and a full-on assault on your eardrums. It's the ideal soundtrack to a hardcore wrestling match, or a street fight if you like. According to the biography, Dive Your Head are children of the 1990s, influenced by nu-metal and groups like Of Mice & Men, Stray From The Path, or even My Ticket Home. That's perfectly fine by me, but I don't know any of those bands.
After listening to the first few tracks, 'Les Rois Perdus' and 'Avaritia', I was ready to compare this band to a hardcore version of bands like Fear Factory. Perhaps because of the fierce sound of the guitars or the meticulous battering of the drums. 'Luxuria' threw some death metal to the mix and here and there I even sense flashes of black metal. Needless to say that this is one intense motherfucker. Vocally, I almost constantly think about Belgian legends .Calibre.
'Post-Mortem' is the culmination of it all, post-hardcore, combined with industrial metal and a good slab of catchy melodies. Obviously, all of that aggression is spew out in the language of Molière. But before that makes you think twice about checking this out, often the exact language is barely audible, except in closer 'Invidia', which adds a bit of funk, nu-metal and rap to the whole thing. In all, this is a harsh, brutal and intense piece of work, varied enough to remain interesting.
