Chelsea Grin – ‘Self Inflicted’ Cover

Do you like riffs?

Not resting on their deathcore laurels after a near 10-year career, ‘Self Inflicted’ sounds like a second wind for Utah six-piece Chelsea Grin.

Any dated limitations the subgenre could impose don’t apply here, as the band’s fourth full-length sees them expand their sound to produce what is, put simply, a solid metal album. Flourishes like gothic pianos and wailing solos combine with a slick production job that results in their crunchy riffs and breakdowns hitting harder than ever before.

While much of it is familiarly furious, the sweeping balladry of ‘Never, Forever’ proves this band are far more than one trick ponies and can hold their own amongst the biggest names in modern metal.
