While the baseline of Number Twelve’s sound seems to be metalcore, they extend their musical reach far beyond the boundaries of that label. The band hops between genres as often as they do time signatures—the first minute of the record, all smooth jazz progressions and a sultry sax, utterly belies the vicious heaviness that follows over the course of the album. Every track breaks up the brutal passages with strange but effective genre wanderings: “Raised and Erased” dips into a circus bridge complete with calliope and pumping rhythms, while the intro to “Tombo’s Wound” toys with bossa nova patterns and hand percussion. But when their metal edge rears its head, such as the chugs in “Last Laughter” or tremolo picking in “Of Fear,” it is utterly and unstoppably vicious.
