Asystole is a Massachusetts-based quartet whose far-reaching nu-metal grooves do go deeper yet always boomerang back and light up the Staind and Godsmack meter throughout the course of their seven-track affair. Strong vocals that switch from impassioned to enraged and a great insight into how to make Korn cookie monster downbeat endearing again assist "Taken Further", while "Washed By Tears" displays the band's love for both VOD and Tool.
