“Corrupted By Mistake” is a slower but really heavy song that can bring a live set into a huge hardcore pit for the dancers. Nothing really technical like the rest of the EP, but still pretty good. They have a few transitions but they all remain in the same tempo throughout the song and doesn’t speed up. It’s a good change of pace. “A Thousand Times More” sounds a lot like the last song, but has enough to make it stand out on its own. It has the crunchy math core sound like some of Periphery’s songs with hoarse, screeching vocals and drums that are almost on a permanent breakdown state. I would have to say this is the best track on the album, though I feel it’s way too short. Overall this is a pretty good EP, though it needs some elbow grease and polish. I know that with the right producer these guys will turn out to be an awesome band.”

“Izeovasis is a band from Livermore, CA that I really haven’t heard of till they sent me their new EP Bound By Design. They play a aggressive, slightly technical metal style not unlike bands like Periphery or Sikth. Although they are nowhere near as spazztic as Sikth, they resemble them more closely than any other band I can think of. “Already Forgotten Words” starts out as a head slammer track that has very much resembles Periphery’s song “The Walk.” Most notably the guitars have the same tone (but with a lower quality mix) and the drums blend with the guitars in the same style as well. But it’s their aggressiveness they bring that sets them apart from other bands. With the transitions between breakdown moments and the faster parts, they really know how to keep it going without losing any momentum.”

“You'll still have your breakdowns now and then but the main focus is on overall good riffage, solid technical work and harsh vocals, whether it be graspy highs or growling lows. I reccommend you all give their Bound By Design EP a listen, as it's five songs of metal goodness. If you're in the local scene, go support them. Listen to them play, bang your head at their shows, sell off your women and children to them as they feast off your blood. The price for good music isn't cheap!!”

“Izeovasis is a four piece metal band that likes to play some quick paced, groovy metal. Though not well known on the national scale, they've been tearing up the local scene for six years. Unfortunately for me, that local scene is on the other side of the country from me, so I have to miss out on this one. Izeovasis is a pretty unique band and very solid for one not well known. Production on their ep "Bound By Design" is pretty top notch for a cd, and the music has a Beneath The Massacre feel to it in some points. Not quite as chaotic, but that's a good thing here as Izeovasis is much more flavorful in how they do things. ”

“What we have here now is a little band from Livermore California named Izeovasis. If you don't know what that means, it is arabian in origin and means "beautiful flower picker". Ok hell, I don't know what it really means. If I had to guess it would be something loud and abrasive, since that's how this music is. (The good kind of fast and abrasive, not the bad kind like a woman running her mouth.)”

“The last time I saw Izeovasis perform live was more than a couple years ago, and man have they grown. I took my eyes of these guys for a second, only to be surprised to see how refined their music has become. If you’re a fan of technical metal, metalcore, or deathcore, you need to check these guys out. They’re based in Livermore, CA, and will be playing at the BAMF festival this year. These guys can shred your faces off with their technicality and then punch you in the gut with their devastating breakdowns. Izeovasis has everything an extreme metal fan could ask for: pummeling blast beats, a relentless vocal attack, some brutal chugging breakdowns and strong energy to do it all live. The musicianship in this band is impressive, and considering how young these guys are, I’m definitely looking forward to seeing where they are headed.”
