I wasn't sure exactly what to expect when I popped this into my computer's CD drive. The name of the band and album really didn't lead me to any particular assumptions, and I'd never heard of the band name or even their label for that matter. I also decided not to look at the lyrics before listening.
I wasn't sure exactly what to expect when I popped this into my computer's CD drive. The name of the band and album really didn't lead me to any particular assumptions, and I'd never heard of the band name or even their label for that matter. I also decided not to look at the lyrics before listening, as I have a
tendency to do, because lyrics have always been a really important facet of music for me. So this music starts, and what do I get? Chugga chugga, double bass, chugga. Awesome, metalcore. Every night before I go to sleep, I pray for more metalcore, and finally, my prayers are answered.
Gagged and bound, broken blood mess / Laugh and point, the angels pissed on you / Drown them in the lifetime of tears you were forced to shed / … / Take my hand and pull the chord, take my hand and tie the knot / Take my hand and tip the chair, take my hand and wave goodbye.
That's about all I could take with the lyrics. And about all I could take with the guitars, drumming, bass, and vocals for that matter. It's all wrapped up in one horrible, clichéd, overdone, retread package that I'm sure Poison The Well fans everywhere will eat right up. I wish I could even say "can't fault a band for trying," but I so easily can here, because there's no effort put in here at all. These guys have just jumped onto the edge of the pile on the metalcore bandwagon, and plan on milking it for all they can. Well, I for one am not going to help them along. Keep. Away. At. All. Costs.
