Excellent Effort that needs publicity

Verge of Umbra’s album is a stellar first release and stands tall on its own merit. What makes it truly remarkable however, are their background. Verge of Umbra are a local Belizean band, Belize not being a country usually associated with Metal acts. Comprised of unapologetic Metal Riffs with rap metal vocals, the Belizean heritage comes through in the Reggae/DanceHall flavor on several songs. Much of the album is reminiscent of a crossbreed between the likes of Linkin Park and Skindred. The lyrics though are wholly local and provide a window into the life and struggle of local Belize City youth but from a segment that hitherto remained very underground. This band needs support and desperately needs more global exposure.
