      At My Mercy 'Balance | Symmetry' Review by Liz Foster

      At My Mercy

      Balance | Symmetry


      Released: May 24, 2019

      Review by Liz Foster, Contributing Journalist

      Boston Rock Radio


      At My Mercy’s album Balance | Symmetry is a lively combination of thrashing guitars and bold screams sometimes offset by more subtle production. The album begins cohesively as it blends its aptly named intro track, “Intro,” into the first full track of the album “The Change” which showcases a feature from First to Last guitarist Matt Good, who also mastered the album. The song offers haunting vocals over more subtle guitars. 

      The catchy, early 2010’s sounding “Sink” feels sonically comparable to At My Mercy’s early 2010’s contemporaries like Memphis May Fire or Bring Me the Horizon. Distinctive jarring, guttural screams throughout “Bled” add a distinctive tone to the conglomerate of thrashing guitars and drums. The song breakdowns to more warped, crooning screams before descending back into high energy madness. The more somber “Decay” transitions into the despair filled “Fix” that alternates between isolated vocals over light drums and more clustered instrumentals. 

      The self titled “Interlude” is a relieving, simplistic instrumental track that acts to calm the listener's blood pressure for its minute and thirty seven second run time before following into the harder, but not that hard, “Passion.” The album’s final three tracks, “Where Can I Call Home,” “Energy,” and “In the Dark” blend together the light and darkness throughout the album, fully reflecting its titular balance. The last notes of “In the Dark” walk the line of electronica and metal beautifully as Balance | Symmetry comes to a close.

      The project is exciting, multidimensional, and packed with promise for the future of At My Mercy.
