One-Way Mirror

One-Way Mirror brings together several musicians from some well-known European extreme metal bands (most notably Scarve and Soilwork), with their debut self-titled album arriving in 2008. Simplisticly, One-Way Mirror is a typical modern metal/metalcore record with some industrial influences, with the requisite wall-of-sound guitars and plenty of harsh-verse-clean-chorus vocals. Speaking of the vocals, he's all over the place, able to mix hardcore shouts with harmonized clean vocals with ease, and there are also frequent industrial-ish vocal effects, which don't always seem necessary. A powerful record, yes, but also rather generic when all is said and done. Really, for better and for worse, this embodies modern rock/metal as well as anything out there. There's nothing wrong here, and if the guys stick together here rather than treating this as a side project there's plenty of untapped potential here, but for now this comes off as ordinary for the style.
