A lot of energy here from this American band from Ohio. What
first comes to my mind is Prong and Coroner. It's mostly in the musical
quality and the somewhat industrial sound of the drums. The strange
thing is that a ballad-like song finds it way into the style of
Mindscape but what the hell – every true metal band must have a ballad!
The vocals are old-school in a way and remind me of something but I do
not know what…wait, maybe the guy from Downer and Rob Zombie at times?
I have heard this band some time ago and it's not strange cos they've
been around since 1995. The songs have a steady groove and there are no
real transitions but it's not tiring because they consist of various
riffs and guitar-licks. Mindscape have toured quite a bit with artists
such as: Danzig, Reveille, Flotsam and Jestsam, Ultraspank, Taproot,
Nevermore and Immortal. As you notice these bands do not have much in
common but the truth is that Mindscape works great in combination with
these bands. Maybe due to the fact that the music is pretty old-school
but has a somewhat modern sound and groove.
I guess you'd like the music if you are into: Prong, Coroner, White
Zombie, Static-X or even power-metal (I hate this style of metal!). Find
