Well, for their full-length debut Closer have moved a bit away from the standard Gothenburg sound and added some flash to their music. Some of this is good, some of it not so good. For one, they added some thrashier riffs and some genuinely good leads to the formula, which is good. On the other hand, their vocalist has gotten more metalcoreish, with a yappier rasp and some clean vocals that suck pretty hard. I don't know. This band is listenable, but they are clearly flirting with metalcore here, and that blows. Closer are not bad, but still do not rise above the mass of similar bands.
