This is “The Rap Metal king of the Philippines” Slapshocks’ 6th studio album. Released on October 2009, the band has again conquered the satisfaction of their fans from their country and even in the abroad. This album features the band’s shifting of genre and their experimentation from the old school Rap Metal/Nu Metal to Alternative Metal to Metalcore. All tracks are considerably Metalcore, with brutal musical elements and technical screamed vocals from the band’s frontman Jamir Garcia. Compared to their last release, which is Recollection (their 2nd compilation album), this is indeed a Metalcore album. Although considered as their 6th LP, the release only consist of 6 tracks, heavily and brutally produced by the band itself.
3. Like Eskimo
5. Can’t Stop Us Now
6. Cariño Brutal
All tracks are listenable, specially if you’re a true Metalhead. This release is for you. It features the band’s evolution from their last 5 releases. In my opinion, it can be considered to be similar to the styles of international acts like Trivium, Killswitch Engage, Bullet For My Valentine, etc. In fact, the first time I heard the song “Like Eskimo”, my first impression is that it really sound like a Killswitch Engage song, since it is a Melodic Metalcore song. The title song “Cariño Brutal” sounds a lot like a Trivium’s material, similar to their last release “Shogun” back in 2008. My favorite track from this release is “Cariño Brutal”. In fact, it is the only song in Filipino language, which is cool enough. I love the part where they shout “Hoy!” which sounds a lot like they’re promoting the country, and the phrase “Inukit mo ang dusa’t pasakit, kung ako sayo wag na wag kang lalapit!” being repeated a number of times while being screamed. Great job guys! I wish Slapshock will continue creating more songs like this in the near future. Recommended album, cheers!
