EP Review: U-Bilam – Evolutions of Mind (Music Records)

French Alt-Metal/Urban Core band, U-Bilam released their debut EP, Evolutions of Mind on October 20th 2017.

Combining a number of metal & rock sub-genres to create an impressionable EP. U-Bilam’s electronica/metalcore/rap/djent sound is certainly something that gets the attention.

Opener ‘Denied’ delivers hard-hitting metalcore beats with plenty of heavy breakdowns & electronica melody sitting in the background. It’s a catchy start that does get the body moving as U-Bilam clearly understand how to mix these elements together well.

Where the EP does falter is with the ‘rap-metal’ parts. A style that feels incredibly out of date now. Anger’s occasional rapping with cheesy breakdowns are a bit cringe-worthy even if the chugging rhythm is appealing.

When they get it right though, Evolutions of Mind is a raging, exciting & catchy record as proven by the excellent Expression & melodic Depression.
