Stream of the Week: Acts of Tragedy – Cursed Words

Acts of tragedy hails from the Mediterranean Island of Sardinia.  Before I get into a little more detail about our Stream of the Week let me try to paint a picture for you.  The band’s listed influences are Pantera The Dillinger Escape Plan, Nevermore, Lamb of god, Periphery, Parkway Drive, Metallica, and Alter Bridge to name a few.  Does that excite our progressive, thrash, and deathcore lovers?  Not sure how Alter Bridge fits into the mix, but Acts of Tragedy certainly embodies a style in line with their influences.

Their six-track EP, Cursed Words, was released 1 July 2013.  The second track, What Remains, features Kevin Talley on drums.  You might know him as one of those drummers that has played roles in “almost” as many bands as Gene Hoglan.  In other words, he gets around and is a cool addition to the track list.  Overall, there is no shortage of aggression, but also includes a more melodic side with the song The Descending DownCursed Words is a helluva start.  I look forward to seeing what Acts of Tragedy brings us in the future.  Check them out for yourself.
