When I think of Orillia, Ontario, well, to be honest.. not much would come to mind. Until now. The band Adrenechrome got together in 2010, and formed a metal force throughout southern Ontario. Their musical influence varies between bands such as Pantera, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Metallica and the new fresh sounds of Mastodon, High on Fire and Children of Bodom. One clearly hears the elements of these bands throughout the tracks of HIDEOUS APPETITES! This band gives us a fresh perspective on each tune. The listener is treated to a metal menagerie of diverse pitches, rhythms, and vocals. The opener of the album, “Titans Fall” rushes at the listener with full-on blasts of the drums and bass rhythm. This song amounts to a victorious battle being waged and won. “Six Guns” travels down to the southern lands of Texas and beyond. Guitars are gunning with speed and accuracy throughout the tune. And then there is “The Horror” to take you through a groove beat, before hammering drums, blistering guitars, and raw vocals take you by the throat to the depths of your soul. “Hymn for the Heavens” reminds me of old school metal, then takes us into a pagan style tune. “Winds of the Void” is entrancing with the melodic guitars and alternating drum beats. Are we “Hobbled” like prisoners, or do we continue with our menial lives to continue dwelling in a human dustbowl? This tune is played with amazing accuracy and tightness. A very progressively driven tune that keeps us moving forward, wanting to save our salvation. I am pleased to have had the opportunity to get to know Ontario's Adrenechrome while listening to this plethera of audio delights known as Hideous Appetites.
