Hooray! I really cannot even tell you guys how many sleepless nights I've spent thinking, "why will the gods above not bestow upon me another piece of garbage cleverly disguised as a metalcore album? What have I done to be so forsaken?" Well recently, after many nights of questioning my purpose a.
I take another breath, I must confess I've lost my mind / I define the pain I describe in blood, now take the barrel and make amends‚?¶for everything.So profound, it's just refreshing to see a band nowadays that has something to truly say. Something beyond the typical, beyond the clich√©. Lokyata, they are that band. And if you thought that was something, wait until halfway through the second song, when the vocalist defiantly proclaims "fuck you, I fucking hate you, fuck you, I fucking hate you!" Fourteen-year-olds whose parents will not let you extend curfew -- you now have a gallant spokesperson. Obviously, the music follows directly in suit. That is, with just being angry. In a fresh and original turn of events, in between bouts of venomously spat vocals, there's some brutal breakdowns, and they're fucking heavy, man. And let me tell you, those guitar squalls, they just come out of nowhere, adding even more depth to what's an already groundbreaking record.
So this, this is it. The album I've wished and pined for so many night before, and it has come, and it has delivered. Breakdowns, anguished lyrics, and‚?¶breakdowns; are there other elements to music? Not as far as I'm concerned. Well done.
