Shizune - Le Voyageur Imprudent

Shizune seems to have mastered the ins and outs of screamy hardcore, presenting a nice blend of chaos along with some straight forward sections.  There's no weak link on the instrumentation, as each musician pulls their weight and excels nicely.  The vocals are well executed and perfectly placed.

For the most part the band paints a nice canvas of mid gain guitars, explosive drumming and frantic screaming.  The delivery is always with an undercurrent of melody, even at their most chaotic.  At some points I'm hearing their Italian counterparts La Quiete and Raein come through, but other times this band is making a path all their own.
