"With "Retribution Therapy", Nine Shrines delivers a boring nu metal album, with compositions that have been heard a thousand times over."
NEWF - 15.05.2019 -
Nine Shrines was formed in 2014 by drummer Andrew Wetzel after the dissolution of Attack Attack! Ouch, it's a bad start. The legacy may be heavy to bear. Attack Attack!, one of the most ridiculous bands in the history of metalcore, distinguished itself in 2010 with a particularly bad title, "Stick Stickly", illustrated by a clip whose vision could give suicidal desires to the most Zen Tibetan monks, even the least music lover. Result? Twelve million views and the birth of a genre that has fortunately fallen into oblivion: the crabcore, designating guitarists squatting with their legs apart. We are really living in a great time. So even if we're betting on a youthful mistake, let's face it, Nine Shrines is leaving with a handicap. And unfortunately, this first album, "Retribution Therapy", is far from dispelling doubts about the sincerity and real motivations of the Cleveland quintet.

"Retribution Therapy" is a consumer music product for American rock radios. A good dose of Papa Roach-style nu metal ('Nimrod','Conjure') and Linkin Park ('Happy Happy'), melodic but unoriginal choruses ('Ghost'), a powerful clear voice, a hint of screaming voice for good measure ('Ringworm'), some indus metal sounds ('Hymn') and it's done. Packaged, weighed, here is a smooth and predictable album that smells like modern alternative metal heated by the fire of the most refined mainstream.

The most daring listener may find some qualities in this purely commercial object, especially its careful production. He will even be able to get out of his torpor with a few rare dazzling insurances, in particular the song "Retribution Therapy" and his thrash riff inspired by System Of A Down. But he will soon fall back into a torpor that borders on boredom when listening to a succession of monotonous titles like a desert landscape.

With "Retribution Therapy", Nine Shrines delivers a boring nu metal album, with compositions that have been heard a thousand times over. A not really bad product but certainly mediocre and without personality.
