Review: Subsource – Generation Doom (EP)

HTF took a listen to Subsource’s latest EP. Click here to see what we thought of it!

Band: Subsource
Release: Generation Doom (EP)
Release Date: Out Now

What happens when you take bands such as Pendulum, The Prodigy, Modestep, Enter Shikari and Linkin Park, mix them together in a bowl throwing in the generic ‘dubstep’ genre but whacking in a huge amount of rock?  Subsource is what you are left with.

Subsource stated that they were “fucked off with so-called live dance acts mincing behind laptops, and rock acts with no more substance than the product in their hair” and the result is a band representing the underground UK dance scene. Each and every one of these rock tracks has been infused with heavy banging dance beats infusing dubstep with rock.

Massive vocals, heavy riffs and deep mixed beats encompass every track and they come pelting towards you like a junkie after their next hit. There is nowhere to hide: the tracks will blast out and knock you straight off your feet.

Opening track ‘Molotov’ blasts out beats for almost 45 seconds without so much as a word and a lot longer before proper lyrics start. The dance beats begin pulling you in as it crescendos up into undeniable heights. Even the dance parts thoughout are heavy with such a backbone of rock beats that it’s hard as a rock fan to not bang your head and want to jump around. It’s the sort of track that would sound at home wherever it is played.

Until Stuart Henshall’s vocals are heard you’d be forgiven for mistaking third track ‘Lay You Out’ for an Enter Shikari track: the synth beats are not as dancey as some of the other tracks and the feeling is raw, angry and heavy – three words you would use to describe most rock bands out nowadays.

This is the sort of album that transcends genres and will appeal to the raver that wants to throw some shapes on the dance floor and the rockers that want to head bang to the heavy tracks involved at the heart of the EP.

7/10
