Acts Of Tragedy - Left With Nothing (Memorial Records) 2017
A conceptual album “about vices, addictions and how these habits could lead men to their self-destruction”. Recorded at V-Studios and produced by Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane…) at Getaway Recording Studio, Left With Nothing is a storming assault of accomplished and extremely focused top notch songwriting. Somewhere between Lamb Of God’s groove of As The Palace Burns, The Dillinger Escape Plan’s musical deconstruction of Miss Machine and Mr. Bungle experimental chaos, Left With Nothing is a galloping, teeth grinding effort that can be both punishing and adventurous at the same time. Acts Of Tragedy’s new effort is strong and dynamic, offering something diverse and well-structured, making it a highly enjoyable piece of work.
