Transcendency- Weight of the World Review

Transcendency are a local up and coming band from Guildford and have just released their debut EP. Having built a fairly big following around the local area the band are looking to break out with the release of this EP. With the quality of this E, they may very well be able to do it.

Featuring local promoter Graham on lead vocals (Check out his promotions company here), this is a band who knows the local scene like the back of their collective hands and know what their target audience is looking for. They hit that nail smack bang on the head with a collection of heavy riffs and the standard collection of screamed and clean vocals. Whilst this may sound standard in many of today’s metal bands, this is a band who manages to breathe a breath of fresh air into the music to make it move and come alive.

My only complaint really is that some of the vocals need a little bit worked on as some areas where the vocals hit seem a little off to me, which may be done intentionally or unintentionally. This is most apparent on Perseverance. Whilst this is only a small complaint, it does tend to become grating after a while. However on every other track it is done to near perfection.

Overall I am very impressed with this debut EP and as they have released it for FREE, it is definitely worth checking out.
