From the distorted shrieks that open “Underwater Bimbos from Outer Space,” two things become instantly clear: Every Time I Die is back, and they are pissed off. Other than a weird, meandering (but strangely catchy) 20-second clean vocal bit, the track is a full-on rager, and a wonderful way to open Ex Lives, a record that reintroduces the band after a couple years of side projects and relative inactivity. Next up is the even heavier “Holy Book of Dilemma.” With its breakneck pace and sporadic blastbeats, the song approaches Dillinger Escape Plan levels of controlled chaos. It is the most intense song the band has written in years. All of this takes place in the first four minutes of the album.
