Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars Futility is the debut album from the american metal band Daath. I have seen this band praised to heaven in different metal magazines and just had to find out what the fuzz was all about.

The music is death metal with lots of modern influences from especially the metalcore genre but definitely also from the Swedish Götenburg sound that bands like Soilwork and In Flames have made famous. A band like Chimaira comes to mind several times when listening to Futility. The vocals are processed most of the times and it sounds terrible if you ask me. Angela Nathalie Gossow from Arc Enemy comes to mind as she has a similar processed growling style. I have nothing against processed vocals but sadly most processed vocals are badly produced which takes away the power an aggressive vocal is meant to deliver and that is exactly what happens on Futility. There are a few parts with clean vocals in a song like Slow and there are also some acoustic guitar for variation, but that is the only time Daath strays from the formula of heavy riffing and machine like sounds. I almost forgot to mention that Daath has also listened to lots of Fear Factory.

The musicians are pretty good, but with music as generic as this, it´s hard to enjoy.

The production is awful. The click track on the drums are badly produced and as a whole the sound quality fails in every way possible.

Is this a 1 star album then ? I´ll be very nice and give this album 2 stars because there are a few parts here and there where I want to bang my head, but progressive this is not. Innovative then ? That would be a big NO too. If you want to hear something that sounds a bit like this but is much more enjoyable try the Swedish band Dark Tranquility instead. Personally I would really like to give this 1 star but the quality is too high though and I can´t break my own criteria. Not recommendable.
