Album Review: Prospective – All We Have

Techy Italian metallers Prospective have skill but few tunes on debut album All We Have

On the strength of this debut album, Italian metalcore outfit Prospective show they can chug a good, techy riff. However, listening to these 10 tracks it soon becomes clear that they’re no trailblazers. But if all the tropes and touches you might expect from a metalcore band have been ticked off and nailed down, what this Bologna quintet lack in mould-breaking innovation they more than make up for in enthusiastic execution. 

Against All Odds and Battlefield showcase a band cognisant with structure, given how expertly they ebb and flow, build and sustain. And while there’s something more student than teacher about these efforts, the brilliance of the performances – particularly vocalist Pietro Serratore and guitarist Luca Zini, whose voices meld most effectively on Disobey – suggest that with an injection of innovation, the future could be bright for this lot. Right now, though, their obvious talents haven’t quite found the outlet they deserve.

Verdict: 2/5
