WORSELDER - PARADIGMS LOST - SLIPTRICK RECORDS  
Hailing from the Pyrenees region of Southern France this quintet's third release is 10 songs and almost 54 minutes long. The band's influences are listed as Pantera, Coroner and Testament. The opener is not the heaviest, the production leaves gaps in the rhythm section. The pseudo or sometimes clean vocals don't help in filling it either. Being near seven minutes long Infighting cannot resist including something akin to a System Of A Down section. The title track starts promising heavier things and even though it is solid the variations take away from the metal that it could be and instead move the sound to a metalcore side. Seeds Of Rebellion is perhaps groovy or what could be described as such, and once more insists on unnecessary variations. Idols sounds heavier, it has its sludge-y moments. The Sickening (a horror movie title perhaps?) starts with a high pitched heavy metal scream and is generally melodic with exotic type riffing. Severed starts with heavier and faster riffs accompanied with higher pitched screams and a few Pantera influenced sections. My Consuming Grief sounds more power metal like. Its riffs and the aforementioned vocal style surely make it attractive in European metal scenes. At times it is almost as if Guillaume Granier is the new Ripper Owens. Home Of The Grave flirts with more 'core sounds and song structures. The Haven is reminiscent of a heavy rock song, not so much metal. Land Of Plenty closes Paradigms Lost with a dark intro and returns to another song ala those before it, one that could be heavier and faster but refuses to go there. – Anna Tergel
