Six In Line - U Shud Hev Invtd Me

Despite Six In Line's choice to butcher a simple sentence for the title of their EP, the crossover stylings of these Swedes is quite good. You may have heard of another new crossover band that hails from Sweden that seems to be sweeping the metal underground by storm, that band being Dr. Living Dead. Well, Six In Line can definitely hang with those guys and they prove it with just three simple tracks on "U Shud Hev Invtd Me." (Cringes as I spell that out)

The sound here is pretty normal for a crossover band. Sweet headbanging riffs more along the midpaced speed, barely understandable vocals that stem from the hardcore punk style more than thrash, and an all around intense atmosphere made to cause destruction. One thing that stands out about Six In Line compared to other bands of the same style is the length and structure of the tracks. Most crossover bands write a lot of material with each song ranging from about a minute to two minutes long, but the three tracks on "U Shud Hev Invtd Me" are all around the three to five minute range. "Plata o Plomo" is the longest song here but it contains the same reckless energy that any two minute punk song has, with plenty of moments that will get your headbanging and singing along with the catchy choruses (Thanks to some very sweet gang vocals). 

There really isn't much more to be said about this EP. It's 12 and a half minutes of some fun and catchy music that any fan of crossover or thrash can enjoy. Also, Dr. Living Dead had better watch their backs, because it wouldn't surprise me if Six In Line makes a bigger name for themselves in the underground of Sweden.
