Vileborn Brings The Noise With The Release of Vileated EP

Vileborn is an independent hard rock act that caught my attention recently. Their latest release “Vileated EP” is a complex mix of several genres, but in the end, it’s heavy. It moves fast through 4 songs, and pushes the boundaries of metal, rock, and even a little punk for the mix. There’s a lot to enjoy here, even in just 4 songs, as each one stands out as an anthem that will definitely find a home with many hard music fans.

From the introduction of “Plague the Day” to the heavy handed “Terminal”, you get a lot to balance out. “Pick Your Poison” and “Bastard” close the EP out and you get a fully scale rock approach, but not without some incredible metallic crunch. The guitar work on the record is good, and the drums definitely find a home with the singing and screaming really well done as well. This is a band that has a bright future, especially if they continue to work within the balancing act of metal and hard rock, leaving nothing behind.

Vileborn really comes through on this disc, and it’s one of the better heavy records that I’ve heard. If you’re a fan of Faith No More, then you will definitely get a sense for the way this band fuses groove metal and hardcore at times. It’s this sort of talent that is missing from a lot of the mainstream releases, even some of the stuff on Victory records. I found the EP to be really good, and heavy without being so heavy that it got annoying. “Vileated” EP is available through a variety of locales, including ITUNES here, and if you’re a serious fan of heavy music, this is your chance to get in on the ground floor. These guys are only going to grow in fan base, as they bring some serious metallic infused music to the table.

You can check out their music video for “Terminal” below, and get a sense for the EP. It’s solid, it’s heavy, it’s worth your time!
