The Red Chord's genre-defining (if not genre-creating) debut, "Fused Together in Revolving Doors" is a milestone. The deathcore genre hasn't ever seen another album like this (save for Pray for Eyes... by The Red Chord). Then again, this album isn't really true deathcore. It's a fusion album, seamlessly blending elements of death metal, grindcore, hardcore (through the usage of GOOD breakdowns), jazz, and even a few thrashy sections that are complemented by death vocals.

Fused Together in Revolving Doors gets off to an extremely explosive start right off the bat. "Nihilist" takes the bat and aims it directly for the listener's head with a severe pummeling of masterful drum fills, high-pitched screaming from Guy Kozowyck, and insane guitarwork provided by Gunface. After about ten seconds of sheer insanity, the song finds its groove and lays down a nice grindcore riff. It doesn't stay for too long, though, as soon after, a classic-style thrash riff takes the stage.

This type of quick-change mentality sticks for pretty much the whole album, so if you're the type of listener who absolutely needs a solid verse-chorus-verse-chorus structure to understand and enjoy the music, stay away. I'm not saying I have a problem with that style, just that this isn't it.

I also love the vast musical influences this band takes on. If you've ever heard Slipknot's debut demo, "Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat.", you'll remember the tune "Do Nothing/Bitchslap" which features death metal sections fused with straight funk. Here, "Dreaming in Dog Years" has the same type of vibe, except it abandons it after a while and goes entirely heavy, and it creates an epic climax for the song, and really brings it together.

What I mean is that other bands have flirted with this type of material, but it often winds up with nothing but insanity: noise, screaming, and no coherence whatsoever. With Fused Together in Revolving Doors, however, you get that sense of coherence; you get to know the songs. What's even better is that the songs are all catchy, and not in that sing-along chorus way, but in the sense that the songs are well written.

Anyway if you're up for a challenging listen, I definitely advise you to check this out. It really is a classic of its genre, and I believe people will talk about it for years to come.
