Single Review: Matricide "Walk Into the Flames" (Independent) by Corban Skipwith

Band: Matricide
Country: Israel
Genre: Metalcore
Format: Digital
Label: Independent
Release date: April 14, 2022
Currently it’s 6:30pm, I had just woken up from a small nap after work. After I woke up in a ‘Land Of Confusion’ I got myself some water, my dog a blanket and off to the review I went’.
When you derive your band name from the Latin meaning ‘mother murder’ you know we’re gonna have a good time and I must say when it comes to this new single I’m glad to say I was 100% correct with my assumptions!
What we have here is 5 minutes and 17 seconds of creative and technical sonic expression that is centered in rich production, heavy instrumentation and badass vocal performances for a rather enjoyable 3 in 1 delight.
For this single I’m getting a strong ‘Groove Metal’ combined with some elements of ‘Nu Metal’ and ‘Hardcore’ all tied up but done in a way where each inspiration isn’t too overbearing on the sounds following/before it in this 5 minute span which is quite unique to have so many variables come together so neatly and arranged so carefully within one song! It’s really a testament to the bands skill and instrumentation prowess to pull this kind of thing off!
The vocal performances throughout the whole song are well organized and layered out in great timing and distribution alongside that gorgeous instrumentation playing ever so angelic like in the background with its many inspirations coming and going so seamlessly past each other to form that ‘technical brilliance’ I was trying to describe above, but the way the vocals work alongside that production is absolutely brilliant.
All in All, for a first time listen, this was great. Hit the nail in the coffin of what a good band is supposed to sound like and I can’t wait to hear more! Corban Skipwith
