Band: Enter Shikari Album: A Flash Flood Of Colour Rating: 7 out of 10

It isn’t often you hear electro genres mix with the metal genre, but when you do it sounds something like Enter Shikari. The band has recently released their third studio album ‘A Flash Flood of Colour’ and it is as politically charged as ever. It is full of chunky metal riffs and beats from various genres including dubstep and electronica. Usually you wouldn’t expect these to mix very well, and on paper I wouldn’t consider this music that good; but there is something special about this band. Maybe it is their passion for music, which can be seen in the energy they put into their songs. Perhaps it is their meaningful lyrics that question our society and the governments that run it. Whatever it is it works for them and music fans are grateful for it.

The two strongest tracks have to be ‘Ghandi Mate, Ghandi’ which fuses political anger, heavy vocals and super bassy beats that all blends together to make something rather special. ‘Search Party’ is also a very strong and promising song; it leans towards the more rock side but is equally as addictive. On the downside however I did find the CD a bit messy, perhaps a bit more thought should have gone into the song structure to make it flow better for fans that would like to listen to it from start to finish.

One thing needed with this band is an open mind, they are quite unique in their own right and may not appeal to everyone at first, but with time they have a song for everyone. I recommended giving this album a listen; it is truly a one of a kind, not to mention it is a perfect example of how strong and current the UK music scene is. If anything from dubstep to post-hardcore to political music is your thing than this is one for you.
