The Review:

Canadaís Smeer are back and out done themselves with their sophomore release, Dischord. The music hasnít changed much from their debut but they refined and matured their sound into a tight well oiled machine. This time around they add to their sound newer elements to their grunge/ nu-metal sound. Itís always nice when a band betters themselves from their debut. I hope they continue bettering themselves and possibly branch out with possible some experimenting.

There are moments that Smeer sounds similar to Linkin Park but without the annoying rapping parts. Dischord has the makings of a radio/MTV friendly hits with itís heavy crunchy songs and ballads that seep with raw emotion.

Lately I really havenít been impressed by the hard rock genre but along with Audioslaveís debut, I have a feeling that Smeerís Dischord can help reset the standards for what modern rock should sound like if promoted properly
