"The band's uncut debut, These Crashing Hands, pulses with all the bloodletting power of the high-body-count video games the band plays when not scheming the most belligerent hard-core it can recall The Faces' beastly power and technical proficiency blossom out as a regular set on of lepidote deep limitless crunch riffs, and diesel-powered drumming....Surprisingly slow with hooks, the songs tend toward pit-ready revelations of ramp in tunes like the style pass over 'Everything Hates,' and 'Waiting for Death.'." -- Scene Magazine, April 4, 2003
Two things tell 13 Faces from the interhomely acclaimed metalliclicliclic-crossover bands like it: The Cleveland quartet hasn't gestural paperwork attaching it to a big label's PR machine (yet). And 13 Faces is best than most of those who deliver The band's uncut debut, These Crashing Hands, pulses with all the bloodletting power of the high-body-count video games the band plays when not scheming the most belligerent hard-core it can recall
The Faces' beastly power and technical proficiency blossom out as a regular set on of lepidote deep limitless crunch riffs, and diesel-powered drumming. Rob Runt's deep roars come in three-minute bursts, his rate hovering tolerably between the outspoken stylings of Cookie Monster and Slipknot's Corey Taylor. Surprisingly slow with hooks, the songs tend toward pit-ready revelations of ramp in tunes like the style pass over "Everything Hates," and "Waiting for Death."
13 Faces is Cleveland's respond to Hatebreed; but even if it had the backing to land on Ozzfest, it'd be too enceinte to fit in.

13 Faces' debut disc These Crashing Hands is 15 songs of aggression from begin to polish off Are you looking for an album that'll give you one or two "slower" tunes to show the bands "versatility?" Too bally bad. That is not represent on this album. What you will find is an album that could be played consecutive done alive and there wouldn't be a individual back in the pit for anyone to take a breath and unlax 100% pure metallicliclicliclic no filler.
It's sturdy to reexamine an album like this, simply because all of the songs conform to the same sort of arrange Not that that's a bad thing at all. 13 Faces are a enceinte example of what makes Cleveland Hard-core enceinte. They just do it doneout all 15 songs on the disc. These Crashing Hands is an world-class-class introduction to what you can gestate on the unanimous album. A barbaric onslaught of metalliclicliclic with no filler. The world-class few songs show exactly what this band is up to of. The crunching guitar riffs and the cream drums really intermingle together good A good keep down of tempo changes (very prevailing in These Crashing Hands) are realized seamlessly. The guitar work and the fracturedown near the end of Beat To Nothing also stand ups out.
Look What You Did To Me features Rob throwing out some machine-gun like lyrics and bounteous himself a hell of a outspoken workout. The guitar work is scathing loyal and the drum work is more than unanimous Adjoin is one of the stand upout tunes on the disc, and it focuses mainly on the terrorism facing the US. Rob again throws down some awe-inspiring outspokens on this pass over with a uncomplicated yet unanimous riff backing up the choir The versify is awe-inspiring, with just the suited amount of musical chaos. Frontline also tackles political issues with sensational barbaricity. The slue of extremely firm songs continues with My Life, which is probably my best-loved song on the disc. It's one of the few traces where you can realise what Rob is cantabile without checking the lyrics. It's enceinte, and there's a lot going on with the music, but it's not overstated Nothing Like You is one of the weaker traces on the disc, but unruffled very enceinte. There's too much going on in the music at some points of the song, and not a lot of continuity. It's unruffled a unanimous song, and it unruffled rerepresents what 13 Faces are all astir but it's not anything that stand ups out. Quickly makes up for that, though, with the same machine-gun like choir that appeared earliest on this disc, and a consecutiveforward enceinte versify. The last four songs faithful out the album the same way it begined, with consecutive-up barbaric metalliclicliclic. The stand upout of these songs is Everything Hates, simply because the riffs are put together so good Slow is also courteous with a slightly toned down pace for part of the song. They establish that they don't have to be going as fast as potential to make good music, it's just what they favor The forked base during the choir shows what type of talent these guys deliver Try Again faithfuls off the album as a huge showcase to the talent that guitarist John Comprix and drummer Jeff Curenton posess. The riffs on this album were put together very well to meld into 15 nearly-seamless songs. It's extremely hard for a band to take a couple up of nice riffs and project out how to put them into the same song without it looking constrained and 13 Faces did just that on this album. The production work probably helped quite a bit also. Comptrix establishd himself to be a more than fair to middling producer on this album, fetching what was probably a huge wall of gravid and turning it into a barbaric memorialise that toes the line nicely between aggression and dead chaos. The only complaint that I could recall of for this album is the lack of stand up-out bass riffs. This isn't meant to malign Bryan Trembley, who is a damn good bassist. It's just that his work isn't really heard at all on the album. No bass fills that I could hear, and no innovational sour I was hoping to hear a small more of the bass stand up out in the songs, instead of it simply laying the base for the guitars doneout the album. Total this album didn't fracture any new establish but I don't recall that that was what the band was stressful to do here. They set out to make an belligerent metalliclicliclic album, and they did that. They also did it best than many early home bands do. I love Hatebreed, but their albums can get extremely cldeaded and can be hard to mind to. These Crashing Hands is a disc that you can mind to and not once say "Why the fuck did they put that riff in there?" A enceinte debut from a band that has already made a mark in Cleveland, and hopefully will be able to fork out elsewhere soon.
"13 Faces have been making a name for themselves in the Cleveland music scene for some time now their new 15-track secrete These Crashing Hands, backs up what I've been hearing. 13 Faces can make some enceinte and belligerent music. The new CD has a fatheaded gravid and is full of mosh pit riffs and furious belligerent outspokens, which are provided by Rob Runt. Runt, who is well known in the Cleveland music scene, has naturalized himself as one of the heaviest singers in the scene today.
Fans of music like to Pissing Razors and Pantera will like this CD." -- Brian Kerr, The Lakelander, November 18, 2003
It's tonic in this age of hard-core and metalliclicliclic bands that seem far more bent on being harder-core-than-thou than on making the best music they can, to see a band that doesn't gravid like it's stressful too difficult
Please don't misrealise me: 13 Faces are hard-core as all get-out. The thing is, the band's thought treat seems to have gone beyond super-fast riffing, deep-voiced growling and whip-crack drumming. This is not to say that their lyrics isolated far from the heavily worn footpaths of the genre, either: blood, violence, death and pain are haunt guest-stars, as is the snarly insistence that the narrator will not be swayed from his path ("My Life").
The difference is in the details: for example, "Quickly" eventually settles into a herculean yet insistently melodious riff, impulsive the outro line "Save your silk cravat for anearly day" home in a way that simply increasing the volume and aggression never could. The super-tight riffing and drumming never gravids like a sick metalliclicliclic version of North american Idol. It's also deserving noting that the rock minder who only occasionally makes a loot into this genre (read: me) will find the lyrics actually comprehendible for a vary Vocalist Rob Runt certainly has a lot of aggression to get off of his chest, but he never emphasizes the growl over the delivery. Former outspokenists with like draw closees would do well to emulate him.
These Crashing Hands is the sort of album that makes the perfunctory minder recall that perhaps the genre isn't headed inexorably toward full self-imposed marginalization. While 13 Faces should easily fulfil their cliched audience, there is plenty astir this band's draw close to belligerent music that should win over the less devoted to give them a back mind.
