UNDERWELL: "Plan Your Rebirth"

Rating: RR
Label: Wormholedeath 2013
Review by: Urban "Wally" Wallstrom

Having the lead vocalist/growler by the name of Marshmallow?? surely can't be your perfect/ultimate metal situation. He's either the derranged cracker, girlie, or merely just extremely afraid of the bonfire? Hey, take your pick. Underwell and their "Plan Your Rebirth" album - the rather typical post-hardcore effort which seem to be very popular at the moment. Growls vs. clean vocals. Brutal vs. soft melodies.

Hailing from Italy and fueled by the f**ked up system, the lyrics speak of an necessary change where a social and spiritual rebirth is much needed to build the better tomorrow as well as the future world. Right on brothers and sisters, release the hounds, crush the establishment, it's payback time! Ehem, sorry about that. But a creative mind cannot afford to stand aside? "Plan Your Birth" didn't exactly set my world on fire though, the Italo five-piece show promise on tracks such as "The World Of Pain", "Sick Youth", and "Bye Bye Black Bird". Sadly their brand of post-hardcore has frankly been done to death in the 00's and may not differ from the U.S. bands.
