Face of Anger is one of those bands who are certainly not offensive, dangerous or in your face whatsoever. This is not to say this is a bad CD, but at the same time it's not exactly the kind of thing that will send shivers down your spine either. Face of Anger falls into that modern metal where loud, clear production is seemingly emphasized over songwriting. Sure, a powerful, crushing guitar is a good thing. But it also helps to actually have it within a song you'll remember. I have to give some credit to singer Frazier (not the boxer or the TV star) for at least singing much more than shouting or growling. It is far too easy for most modern metal bands to resort to growling than to try using one's voice. But regardless, there isn't a whole lot here that personally appeals to me. I get the feeling that fans of the genre (ie: Pissing Razors, Skinlab, Machine Head) might get a kick out of this record, though.
