2 stars The full length debut "Breaking the Fourth Wall" by Beecher really showed what they would ultimately(before tragically disbanding) become on their following release "This Elegy, His Autopsy",

The music sounds similar to The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Number Twelve Looks Like You, but with less finesse and more ferocity. It's hardcore with noise, metalcore and tech-like influences thrown into the mix.

While this album is rather good, it both pales in comparison with the follow up and suffers from a bad case of unclear direction with some really painful songs that feel out of place and very, VERY repetitive, much unlike "This Elegy, His Autopsy". There's also a problem with the length of the album, by the start of the album I always get absorbed by the fantastic vibe and energy Beecher express but as it goes on its hard to maintain this enthusiasm as the songs are rather similar in sound and structure.

An album that has amazing ups and equal downs. Very much a first record with all that it implies. A great start for a band that could have changed the face of tech metal as we know it. Well worth buying if you love the genre and should probably be avoided by those who don't.
