The Only Review That Matters- Spit On Your Grave

Updated on July 14, 2015

Methane

About a year ago when I started doing this, one of the first things I did was start a twitter page for my account. Shortly after creating a twitter page for myself, I discovered very quickly that I already had several followers. One of said followers was a band called Methane.

I had never heard of them before so I decided to look more into it. After doing some research, I found out they are a heavy metal band from Sweden. The band was formed in 2012 by two brothers, bassist and lead vocalist Tim Scott and guitarist Dylan Campbell. Along with lead guitarist Jimi Masterbo and drummer Andreas Strom, the band had spent the last year touring Scandinavia and the U.S.

After reading their bio, I found they had a YouTube page and decided to listen to their most viewed songs, Hang Me High and Scars and Bars. I wrote one of my first reviews about them and gave them a high rating for their commitment to stay in the context of true metal.

About a week ago, I got a message from Tim Scott asking me to review the bands new single before its released on July 1st. I was more than welcome to review the band's new song and he sent me the link for the track. So without further ado, here's my review of Spit on your Grave.


What I liked- The song has the same heavy style of the other two singles I reviewed last year. Right from the beginning, you're hit with a heavy, pounding drum beat and guitar riff that sets the tone for the rest of the song. Individually, each band member sounds great. Campbell and Masterbo's guitar playing is fast and heavy, Strom has the speed of Dave Lombardo with the heaviness of Vinnie Paul, and Tim Scott has the hybrid vocal style of Tom Araya and Phil Anselmo. The guitar solo is a nice change of pace that fits the feel of the song without overshadowing it. With the right music video concept and director, this song could be an instant anthem.

What I didn't- I can't explain, but its like the song is missing something. It needs something in it to make it stand out from the rest of the metal bands out there. Maybe something like a contrasting intro to help build suspense and desire to hear the rest of the song.

Bottom line- This song is right on par with any of Methane's other great songs. I said in my last review that this is a killer metal band and they haven't made me change my opinion on that. This band deserves a record deal and I can't wait for the day they release a full length album. With all the mainstream metal bands seemingly toning down the tenacity, Music needs a band like Methane to bring heavy metal back to what it was meant to be.
