Can't Get Us All

Can’t Get Us All is the eleven-song debut album from Warsaw’s Daymares. Usually when it comes to Selfmadegod releases, you can expect something raw and gnarly in the hardcore realm and this release is no exception. What we have here is about 35 minutes of music that marries energetic hardcore with frighteningly dirty rock and roll.
Coliseum is a good beginning reference point for the Daymares sound, although these Polish practitioners have a lot more rumbling death’n’roll influence, firmly planting the band somewhere between Entombed and Tragedy. The gruff, throaty yells reside on the low side of the spectrum and even have the occasional “melodic” spark for added catchiness, which kind of reminds me a bit of the vocalist from Paintbox. Energy and attitude are plentiful as evidenced by the groovy rock-oriented riffing in opener “Get Us All”, “Almost There” and “As Bad As It Gets.” Tracks like “Suicide Watch” and “Key Witness” operate under a more traditional hardcore formula without the rocked out riffing, but they still have a good amount of character.
For my money I’ll take Coliseum over Daymares, although the heavier, meaner vibe that radiates from these guys makes it a pretty close battle. I wouldn’t say Can’t Get Us All is a groundbreaking album or anything, but Daymares have great energy and can write a damn solid rock riff while keeping an identity that is at least partially their own. Definitely one of the better Selfmadegod releases of recent memory.
