A Killer's Confession

Last Chance (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This single is heavy and quite classy. It is definitely not old school metal, but it clearly fits into the nu-metal zone. I like this quite a bit, and I'm not really a fan of this sub-genre of metal. It's not earth-shattering in terms of creativity, but it makes up for it with energy and style.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) in Music Street Journal: 2020  Volume 4. More information and purchase links can be found at: garyhillauthor.com/Music-Street-Journal-2020.

Track by Track Review
Last Chance
A symphonic sort of introduction brings this into being. The first vocals come in over the top of that. From there we get a fierce, metallic jam. That part has a bit of a techno meets epic metal vibe. It drops down to more of an electronic movement for the first vocals. This has an alternative rock vibe along with plenty of nu-metal. It has some great dynamic range. While it's not all that unique, it has some cool textures and sections. I prefer the heavier parts of the song, but this works well overall, too.
