The band's name has a month in the title, followed by a violent word -- Novemberkills (ya know guys, the spacebar is the biggest key on the keyboard and you could not find it?!).

They're from Long Island‚?¶go figure.

Russian Roulette is the horrendously lame title of their sophomore release.

There's some singing √¡ la A Static Lullaby.

One of the members is screaming (didn't see that one coming).

Of course, overly predictable breakdowns are prevalent.

Not to mention they have better haircuts than you and I, too.

You can never mistake this for any other band.
-- from the press release

Look, if this band cannot take the time to do something unique and/or the slightest bit interesting with an already tired genre, I'm not wasting the keystrokes when I could be playing baseball or eating pizza.

This album isn't that bad as you guys say. i purchased it and yeah it is defiantly a long island band, but there are many long island bands that are good, i've been to a couple of novemberkill's show, and they weren't bad at all. some of you just need to listen to there music and songs and don't judge them because of were they live

I didn't buy the album but I did listen to their free download songs and although they are an "emo" band they arent as bad as you guys are making them out to be. The songs that I heard were well made and nice on the ears but not breathtakingly original. I have heard a lot of bands that get much more respect and really suck. Hopefully this band will learn to be more innovative in the future so I will actually spend money on them.
If you like the "emo" genre I think you would like their stuff.

seriously, this review is TOTALLY on point. i don't care what other people will probably post in the coming days, defending the album.
(fyi - these will come from friends of the band.)
if you can't do anything even slightly original, then what's the point? putting out the same copycat shit?
"oh, this is successful. i think we'll just do the same exact thing."
call it a day, folks. you're beating a dead trend.

i disagree completely. i heard the cd and i thought it was incredible. there is no reason that you should have rated "and tell her i loved her" so much higher because "russian roulette" is clearly much better. i think you need to listen to the cd again, because this was the most disgusting review i have ever read in my life.

darkstarm (May 30, 2005)

this post is flat on straight out correct.

at first i thought "well maybe it wouldn't be this low if this album was released two years ago" but fuck that. this shit deserves to get ripped this bad. one of the best (if not the) reviews ever on this site. call a spade a spade.

amen on the decemberists comment.

I understand the guy below me. There are some bands in the EMo/Screamo genre that should get recognition, but some should just get whacked over the head with a lead pipe becuz of wat a rip off they are.

hmmm i do agree this genre is gettin over popullated really fast...but there is alot of bands that shouldnt get bashed just becuz some other jackass copied their work. Your blaming all the bands..even the founders of the genre for over popullating it...when it was a very unkown genre when it started. just my opinion anyways..i didnt like Novemeberkills..i deffinately heard better than this.

Probably my favorite reivew. Awesome.
This needs to be said to all bands in this genre.

The worst part of this is that I can't trade it in anywhere, because they sent it in a paper sleeve.

Way to screw me over.

So if these bands are so bad, why even waste time reviewing them?

Finally, linked words put to good use.
