With a band name like Book of Job it is hard to take any musical entity seriously, but this power trio definitely know how to persuade with their energetic, metallic hardcore anthems. “Hamartia” has a strong production, mix and sound as all of their instruments work in conjunction with each other, and the vocals just add more fire to their chaotic upheaval.
Their music is pretty basic, mainly comprised of power chords and bar chords with a few strummed chords thrown in for good measure. Musically, this bunch is pretty tight, but their debut CD “Hamartia” lacks color in terms of musical diversity as all ten tracks have a similar direction in feel and tempo.
For those you into slamming and moshing, this CD will do as it has tons of break neck rhythms that’ll get you into a slammin’ frenzy. Just one listen to track 4, “Pursuing The Cosmos” and you’ll be thinking that are these guys really singing about the cosmos, kind of funny as they don’t seem the type to sing about any related to space time continuum. Book of Job should appeal to fans of “Bring Me The Horizon”, “Unearth” and even hardcore legends Madball. [Worm Hole Death] Sarjoo Devani
