"Framework A World Distorted"

Originally formed in 2006, the members of FRAMEWORK have been playing since early youth, were used to be called EXORBITANCE. These guys are hailing from the US, east coast, New Jersey to be exact, according to their bio, they have been playing Melodic Death Metal, a highly likeable cross of Metal, taking down a notch the brutal side of the traditional Death Metal.

FRAMEWORK’s new album was named “A World Distorted”, regarding the review I will keep it short as possible as I believe that a hot prospect should be less talked about and more listened to. FRAMEWORK are on the way to success, bearing some great riffs spiced up with melodic parts. The only drawback I think was with the vocals by Glenn Ferguson. Don’t get me wrong, he is not bad, but I think that a more low pitched growling will be more appropriate for future releases. On the other hand, Ferguson has it in him to become great.

Don’t miss “Beyond Earth's Shadow” an epic track with a nice video clip, “Without Wings”, a Doomish Death Metal with melodic atmosphere made to perfection, one of the tracks that you can listen to for six times in a row and I did. Also check out “The Code” with a long acoustic ambient intro that changes to a full blown Death attack, simply amazing. - Metal Temple


Framework (formerly known as Exorbitance) are the kind of band you listen to if you miss that fast as fuck thrash-based style of melodic death metal you got from bands like Carnal Forge, The Absence, or the most obvious culprit, At The Gates. Their debut under the Framework name, A World Distorted, is a fucking amazing record, showcasing these blood-hungry Americans’ ability to craft melodic death metal that retains the militancy and commitment to crafting brutal, yet epic songs that give you whiplash.

It’s very rare that you find a band playing just straight-up, no-nonsense melodic death metal this well and writing an album THIS good that doesn’t feel at all like a rehash, even if the influences are worn on their sleeves. A World Distorted is frankly one of the best debuts from a melodic death metal band I’ve heard in YEARS.

The music is all about killer riffs, captivating melodies that make you want to charge into battle in slow motion, and those delicious old school Lindberg-esque snarls. Guitarists Andrew Pevny and Devin DeCicco and bassist Chris DeBenedetto know their shit, and they know it so well that they sound like they were around during the inception of the Gothenburg scene itself. Vocalist Glenn Ferguson sounds like he’s straight from the mid-nineties and drummer James Applegate is an insanely tight, precise, and brutalizing drummer to listen to. These guys really bring back that Gothenburg vibe while retaining the developments by American counterparts like The Black Dahlia Murder and The Absence.

Just… just listen. They’ve got the fucking riffs, the intensity, and the melodies. Call this an early 2014 highlight and check these guys out.

Also the album’s pay whatever you want. Which means it’s technically free, but these dudes seriously deserve the fat stacks. No joke. - No Clean Singing


Still working on that hot first release.



Framework is an American melodic death metal band from New York/New Jersey.  Their debut album "A World Distorted" is a blend of melody and brutality, featuring 9 unrelenting tracks.  The band brings an extremely high energy performance to the stage as they showcase the guitar duo of Andrew Pevny and Devin DeCicco, the pummeling drumming of James Applegate, rabid vocals of Glenn Ferguson, and growling bass from Chris DeBenedetto.  While exhibiting a high level of musicianship, the band also maintains a listenability that is hard to come by in the genre.  Having shared the stage with bands such as Armageddon, The Absence, and Arsis, Framework is no stranger to playing intense heavy metal.
