Of Quiet Walls - Dopedisco and the Hetero Elephant EP

Of Quiet Walls - Dopedisco and the Hetero Elephant EP
Record Label: Sharkmen Records / Villagekids Records
Release Date: 2007


Of Quiet Walls are a seven piece metalcore band out of Germany. Take a moment and read over that sentence. Yeah, I said seven piece. Besides the typical guitar, bass, and drums combo, they sport two vocalists and a pretty much useless keys/effects/background vocalist.

The bandís debut EP Dopedisco and the Hetero Elephant EP is a seven song outing of typical metalcore-by-numbers. The two vocalist scream back and forth at each other through the songs while one occasionally sings over technical guitar lines and double bass. Throughout the whole album, I tried and tried to hear any of the electronic elements the band claim to have, and it remained nowhere to be found. However, the band has something going for them, and itís their energy. The album never lets up, keeping the intensity high through screams, growls, singing and various gang vocals. Iíd also have to thank the band for sparing us the constant chug breakdowns that plagues metal these days; the breakdowns are technical and unpredictable, on par with bands like August Burns Red. The recording quality is phenomenal considering the band recorded it themselves, sounding even better then what some major studios produce.

Of Quiet Walls are basically playing whatís hot right now, and while theyíre not typically memorable, they are talented. If they could find a way to separate themselves from the already saturated metal scene, they could go on to do great things.
