Emmure's new full-length Eternal Enemies has come under a lot of media fire, especially for an album that sounds like a continuation of the nu-metal/rap rock bands that were big in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The perfect example of this comparison is the song "Nemesis." The guitars are loud and heavy and the drums are insanely fast, all fairly good parts of the song until we get to the vocals. The vocalist takes it upon himself to perform three very different parts. First, he sings the deep roar-like vocals that a lot of death metal bands typically use and then he switches screaming. The third kind of vocals he performs is a sort of "talking" during the breakdown of the song and to be quite frank it's a little reminiscent of "Break Stuff" by Limp Bizkit (there are even record scratching sound effects in the song "E"). The switching between three kinds of vocals is very distracting to listen to. And this goes on for the majority of the album. Also, though the guitars are really heavy and extremely distorted, it's hard to tell the difference between guitar riff in one song from another. Musically, nothing is really that outstandingly original. The same goes for the lyrics, like in the song "Most Hated," where the beginning lyrics are: "This is what I'm all about/No regrets, no fuckin' doubts/ So you better watch your fuckin' mouth/Before I put you on the fuckin' groundâ?¦BITCH!"
