A band with huge promise who seemed to disappear as quickly as they arrived, Five Pointe O burst onto the scene with their debut for Roadrunner and incorporated the prerequisite nu-metal influences of the era with death metal, prog metal and every other sub-genre of metal you can bally well think of!

Featuring clean vocals, hair-raising screams and guttural roars, this cacophony of disparate styles may have been a marmite proposition but there was much to love about this one-off highlight from the tail end of nu-metal’s reign. The Rage Against The Machine-esque “Freedom” was a suitably ferocious tirade while the middle-eastern rhythms of “Syndrome Down” and the colossal progressive death metal/alt metal of “Purity 01” proved this was one band who could, and should, have gone on to greater things.

Instead, they imploded….leaving just this one, underrated 00’s gem, as evidence of their existence.

Roadrunner Records should have pulled a gun on these fuckers and simply demanded a follow-up!

  1. Remember that I had this Realm release on cassette. Kill em all on side A and this one on side B. No description on the cassette, but I heard it was Metallica, years later I found out what was on the B-side. Great stuff
