I was never the greatest fan of nu metal when it happened. I thought it was too much of a commercial gimmick. But in hindsight I gotta admit that some of the stuff wasn’t too bad. But that was then. This is now. And now I sit here with [生 Conform 死 debut album “Circa 94”. This is an exercise in modern hardcore crossed with 90s to 00s nu metal. If you think that Meshuggah are a mouthful you will want to stay well away from this. If you on the other hand think that Dillinger Escape Plan are to easy on the ear you should give this one a try. This is no easy record to take in. It slithers hither like a snake on acid. This one takes complex to a whole new level, at least in my book. But somehow I find myself liking this. There is a charm to it that appeals to me. Anders Ekdahl
