Other Eyes Wide are a band from England that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of extreme metal, alternative and hard rock with some death metal elements and this is a review of their 2015 album "Chapters" which was released by WormHoleDeath Records.
A very distorted and modern metal sound starts off the album and after the intro it starts getting more powerful while also adding in death metal growls, high pitched screams and a touch of alternative and you can also hear a lot of melody and clean singing in the bands musical style and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a few ballads while some of the heavier parts also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts at times while some of the screams also add a touch of black metal into the bands musical style and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Other Eyes Wide creates another album that borrows him the more mainstream sides of metal, rock and alternative but also add in some groove and death metal elements along with a touch of black metal to create a sound of their own on this recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion this is another decent sounding recording from Other Eyes Wide and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Broken Path" "Hidden Strength" "E.C" and "Live". 7/5 out of 10.
