Gizmachi - The Imbuing (Big Orange Clown/Sanctuary) - Back
Gizmachi creates experimental metalcore with a little nu metal on their album “The Imbuing.” This is their debut as well as their record label’s, Big Orange Clown Records. The sound is a cross between Chimaira, Meshuggah, Mudvayne and Candiria. They have super heavy down tuned guitars, experimental parts like Candiria, a powerful sound like Chimaira and Meshuggah, some parts are even a little like Pantera…much more than your typical metalcore band. It’s a loud, abrasive, vibrant sound with lots of choppy heavy riffs. On the microphone are hardcore screaming vocals mostly, sometimes almost death, and layered singing vocals for many choruses. The production is excellent. M. Shawn Craine better known as #6, Clown of Slipknot, produced this disc. Eight songs for over forty-six minutes, there are no short songs. Basically everything is about five minutes or longer except one that is 4:19. “The Imbuing” is something both band and label can be proud of…good job!
