EP Review: CLOCKWORK ASYLUM Eve Of The Eclipse

Eve Of The Eclipse
Release Date: October 17, 2017
After doing a quick video review for them, I was sent "Eve Of The Eclipse" by Clockwork Asylum. As I mentioned in the last review, these guys are less chaotic than what I am used to. While there are still gutturals throughout, this release is laden with beautiful vocals. Catchy lead and rhythm work as far as the guitars go, the bass is simplistic yet well done. After listening, some of the bass rolls got stuck in the back of my mind. Reminding me at times of early Disturbed and the heavier tunes by old Silverchair, this release is for all ages. Guitar squeals also make this a good time, as they are all well-placed. The last track on the album, a bonus track, is a heart-felt dedication to a friend of the band who is no longer with us. It was a really heavy tune in places, which I did not expect. The drums on this are tight yet not overdone, making this a pretty tight album overall. When you are in the mood for some heavy grooves, pump this release through the speakers. I really think you might enjoy it. -Devin Joseph Meaney
