Melody, Aggression, and Groove, are three words that jumped out at me as I was reading Throw Logic’s bio, and simultaneously listening to their new ‘Breaking December’ CD EP. This Phoenix, Arizona, based, heavy-industrial-collides-with-nu-metal juggernaut throws down pounding, metronome-type beats, slinky serpentine rhythms, and solid pop-metal vocal arrangements, in to their compelling songs.

Throw Logic’s two guitarists, Mikey and Nate, combine their crunchy hard-rock riffs with a fair amount of techno effects, painting a portrait of “Goth meets industrial meets modern metal”. Often, the multi-layered string-effects suggest keyboards or strings, adding quite a bit of classic off-Broadway-type stage theatrics to the otherwise generally metallic proceedings. This music makes me think what a band like Device or Fear Factory would’ve been like performing in the Vaudevillian era. Without question, part of that dramatic effect is credit to the gut-wrenching emotion and delivery of front man Ricky, whose soaring vocal parts are the cement to the duo-guitar-attack and the bone-crushing rhythm section.

Take a sec to experience ‘Breaking December’s first single and video, “Counterfeit”, which is currently all over the Internet. I’m also partial to the title track, and “Drifters”, which are the heaviest of these six relentless tracks.
