Make Them Suffer - Lord Of Woe EP (Review)

Make Them Suffer is an Australian based band with so far only one release being the their Lord Of Woe EP. The band has been labelled as symphonic deathmetal, deathcore, black metal, but I would say it is quite a mix of all of them, this interesting mix makes this band quite diverse and unique, already making this band interesting. The band uses quite a bit of symphonic sounds of piano and a bit of orchestration, giving their songs a real unique feel, especially the fact that this is being played a long a heavy 7 string guitar which at times is also doing breakdowns. So already you must review this band in a completely different aspect. The vocals is all screaming ranging from quite a few different types of screams. The guitar is quite heavy and fast, tremolo picking is used along with breakdowns played with the piano and orchestration. The lyrics are mainly around the idea of destruction but not completely sure on what, but that is more on my interpretation on it, but the lyrics are grim and heavy which is just great. For their first EP they took it quite seriously, getting it well mixed and well published looking quite appealing and sounding really clear. One thing I forgot to mention is the awesome drumming done in these songs, great blast beats and really fast pasted. I have seen Make Them Suffer play live several times and the drummer puts so much effort into making that sounds so great, plus the band themselves have great stage presence keeping everything heavy, and off stage great guys to chat to. I would really recommend going on their facebook and liking them and checking out their songs, they are a great band and deserve recognition. Plus they get sick tee shirts to make owning their merch all worth wild.

Dude, you have exceptional taste in music. I was going through the music on the side. Parkway drive was my favourite band a few years ago.

I have to suggest Job for a Cowboy. You might enjoy their music.

Yes I have checked out Job For A Cowboy and they aren't band, might review them.

Sweet tunes, but i would rather see some moshing instead of headbanging.

Darkest Hour just came out with a new album this year if you wanna give that a listen. Favorite band of all time.

I typically prefer some clean vocals in my heavy metal, but goddamn. I sure as hell really enjoy orchestrated work--I feel it adds another realm of complexity to the output.

You have some excellent recommendations. Glad to be following you.

Nice shreds but What I don't like on this genre is they somewhat sound like vomitting girls haha :P thanks for the share tho. At least you made me listen to (the whole song.).

Nice songs dude!

That Bastard From Bellingham said...

Well, the breakdowns certainly live up to yer hype!

But man, screaming...do they even have lyrics?

Duuuuuuuude, I ain't dissin', I'm just sayin'. Tone is a hard thing to get across over the Internuggets, and you KNOW I'm cool witcha.

Y'know what though? I'm gonna train hard in guttural singing and do a song with my band just for you dawg.

Serious, no jokin'.
