Album Reviews: SHALLOWPOINT - Infringement

Shallowpoint should be equally familiar to the metal scene in Knoxville, Tennessee, listeners of Deviants Underground Radio and readers of Autoeroticasphyxium zine, from the exposure they have received since forming a few years back. The band’s debut full length consists of songs that have been part of their repertoire from the beginning alongside newer compositions. This recording demonstrates how they have weathered lineup changes and assorted drama to emerge a tighter unit, and done the same through experience at performing and a genuine enthusiasm for writing, recording and bringing their songs to Tennessee and beyond. The band’s formula of post-thrash flavored with Southern rock combined with the painfully honest lyrical delivery is evolving into a style all their own that is already standing out from the contemporary metal industry that partly inspired it. In addition to this nine track full length Shallowpoint have independently produced videos, their own merchandise and a steadfast following to speak for. If you’re just hearing of them refer to the address above to be schooled on anything you need to know about them.
