Review: Senses Fail – Renacer

Rated:

4/5

Forget what you think you know about Senses Fail because Renacer sees the band burying their pop tendencies beneath breakdowns so brutal that even Hatebreed fans will be sated. Recorded with Far guitarist Shaun Lopez, the album sees vocalist Buddy Nielsen screaming like an NYHC veteran as the band mirrors his aggression via the sonic assault of tracks like “Holy Mountain” and “Courage Of The Knife.” That’s not to say Renacer doesn’t have its share of melodic moments such as the intro to “Snake Bite,” but ultimately these well-place segues are but a welcome respite from the pummeling power of the riff.
