EAST WEST - The Light In Guinevere's Garden

EAST WEST
The Light In Guinevere’s Garden
Sony
2001

There is a difference between rapcore and nu metal. The differences are subtle, but they’re there. Without delving too much into detail, East West’s mainstream label debut, The Light In Guinevere’s Garden, is nu metal, having more in common with Static X and Drowning Pool than Limp Bizket and P. O. D. Yes, there’s rapping, but that’s only a minor inclusion to the music. There’s the multi-layered production, the primal rhythmic playing, and melodic vocals and rage vocals complementing each other. Overall, this is a surprisingly solid release, for any fan of nu metal looking for something less dreary than Disturbed, Linkin Park and any other copycat band…
