    Knocked Loose 'A Different Shade of Blue' Album Review By Allyson Kingsley

    Knocked Loose

    A Different Shade of Blue

    Pure Noise Records

    Released: August 23, 2019

    Album Review By Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

    Boston Rock Radio

    Knocked Loose is:

    Cole Crutchfield (rhythm guitar)

    Bryan Garris (vocals)

    Isaac Hale (lead guitar)

    Kevin Otten (bass)

    Kevin Kaine (drums)


    Knocked Loose first arrived on the hardcore radar via their first LP Laugh Tracks and through their variety of influences and phenomenal live performances they have gathered a following. Most people would not think of a hardcore or metal scene stemming from Louisville, Kentucky but if you dig deeper you'll discover bands such as Coliseum, Endpoint and Hellnation, among others. 

    Because of the small but thriving scene in Louisville, a diversity of genres coexist and influence what you will hear from Knocked Loose although they remain predominantly hardcore at heart. If you listen with a fine ear, you will catch the death metal influences, a taste of the Gothenburg sound, slam metal, thrash metal and even a few slices of black metal. It is this medley that has Knocked Loose running to the helm of the ship.

    We were probably first introduced to them by way of "Mistakes Like Fractures," heard on airwaves for quite some time now and for me, they perked my ears from the start. They are raw, bare-bones, and thoroughly angry sounding. The second single I had heard on satellite radio was "...And Still I Wander South" which was extremely serrating and encased within the song is something almost melodic that gives it a bit of an ethereal quality in spite of the underlying aggressiveness.

    "A Serpent's Touch" has Emma Boster (Dying Wish) as a guest vocalist and the song seems to meld the savagery of hardcore with a heavy coating of death/thrash.  "By the Grave" is where I hear a hint of black metal in the riffs especially the beginning sequence. And the lyrics are harsh...

       "I fall victim to your hand

       I have broken the laws of God

       I am stuck inside your head

       And I hope it fucking kills you

       (That I'm gone)". 

    Again, buried in the riffs of "In the Walls" is a much more prominent black metal influence and I sure would love to know how to make that siren sound. I feel as though if a video were done for this track it would look badass filmed in a red wash.

    If you don't mind the jagged and sharp vocals, A Different Shade Of Blue is actually a brilliant work and I'm pleased they have reached a rather decent level of notoriety.
