Canister has spent a great deal of time in the past few years investing in new talent and it certainly shows. In the past they were extremely unable to focus on a solid musical direction but that issue has definitely been resolved on this, their debut album. Musically, Canister is a very gothic synth core project. While not technically a goth band, they use enough of the darker gothic elements including stereotypical vocal work and guitar chords to make the comparison at least partially valid. All of the tracks are very mid-tempo and make use of electronics only as a rhythm section and for percussion. The remainder of the music is composed of subdued guitars and harmonic vocal work. Lyrically the music is overly morbid and depressing, exhibiting that gothic tonality once again. Favorite lyrical topics include painful emotions, religion, and failed relationships. Overall, Canister has evolved into a very solid project that seems to know exactly where it is going, now it just needs to bring it's musical message to the masses.

Canister is: Shawn Pezzuto, David Rostcheck & Douglas Bailey
