yeah these dudes are all over the fuckin place and look like they're talking a dump. this song is like 10 songs randomly pasted together.

but gotta say the sludgy breakdown at 1:15 is pretty boss.

i actually prefer ADD-core to nu-metal, i think.

Oh my god, the breakdown at 2:48 is so fucking hilariously bad and amazing.

this is still not as bad as Brokencyde. also the last 40 seconds are pricelessly hilarious.

To be fair regarding all that running in place idiocy, it just reminds me of the bit in the MC5 documentary with the film clips of them doing synchronized high kicks on stage at the height of their White Pantheresque days.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 16 June 2009 15:59 (ten years ago) Permalink

yeah they remind me of the mc5 too

btw this sounds exactly like every other screamo band that's around right now, nothing new to see here. search other awful bands as underoath, the devil wears prada, etc

the devil wears chowda

Kerm, Tuesday, 16 June 2009 16:41 (ten years ago) Permalink

wait, underoath and the devil wears prada include hi-nrg synth moves in their songs too? maybe i should give those bands another chance.

scott seward, Tuesday, 16 June 2009 16:53 (ten years ago) Permalink

These guys sound nothing like Underoath (not that I'm mounting a defense of either, btw) and only a little like Devil Wears Prada. Actually I think these goofs make TDWP look like frickin' Coalesce by comparison.

Is that a compliment?

Alex in NYC, Tuesday, 16 June 2009 17:00 (ten years ago) Permalink

I was thinking this song had everything too, but now I realize it doesn't have any rapping. FROWNY EMOTICON.

bendy, Tuesday, 16 June 2009 17:05 (ten years ago) Permalink

Its a backhanded compliment to The Devil Wears Prada for not sucking THIS bad.

musically the first minute isn't so bad, overused autotune effect aside.

the eurodance breakdown at the end is hilarious

hm, I dunno, I feel like something has to actually be legit to break through into historical relevance like that, and... I mean there's this attitude right now that this post-Emo/Scene thing is just something older generations couldn't understand, but from what I've seen there are smarter, less shitty kids of this same generation off making witchhouse/seapunk/icepunk/etc... and these metalcore/Scene kids are their generation's shitty equivalent of, say, Good Charlote or whatever

Little GTFO (contenderizer), Sunday, 12 February 2012 07:24 (seven years ago) Permalink

Yeah, well, unless kids have changed drastically since my era (hey, guess what, they haven't) that sexist horrible shit doesn't appeal. Well, yeah, it appeals to frat boys and alterna-trendies, but they've always been there, they've always been shit, and they've never represented what most of the generation want.

emil.y, Sunday, 12 February 2012 07:47 (seven years ago) Permalink

that's the thing. sound is awesome. content is repulsive beyond belief. "your daddy will be proud of his stupid little girl / shut the fuck up". no, just shut the fuck up, forever.

I'm on the same boat... they're overtly ambitious but the result is crap. It's like getting the top spot at ratemypoo ambition.

Moka, Sunday, 12 February 2012 07:54 (seven years ago) Permalink

They're not ambitious, though. If they were, they'd be pushing more boundaries than 'brostep crabcore'. It's not like they're creating anything new, I mean, Jesus, I think it'd be generous to say they're even amalgamating things in a new way. They're just obnoxious and shitty.

emil.y, Sunday, 12 February 2012 07:57 (seven years ago) Permalink

^ yeah. even the intro is a straight-up ripoff of "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites." where's the ambition in that?

plee help i am lookin for (crüt), Sunday, 12 February 2012 08:00 (seven years ago) Permalink

eh, ambition and "boundary pushing" are dubiously constructed. pop just has to sound fresh and catchy to its audience.

Little GTFO (contenderizer), Sunday, 12 February 2012 08:28 (seven years ago) Permalink

Yeah I meant ambitious in their stacking up as much crap they can find and pulling off a big turd of nothingness. Ambition doesn't really equate to originality or boundary pushing in my mind... it has more to do with biting off more than you can chew, and then chewing it.

Moka, Sunday, 12 February 2012 08:51 (seven years ago) Permalink

true, the question is when and what to combine, to what end, etc.

character may have something to do with it too, the personality/type reflected/spoken to in the form. this is very much 'being awful to make awful music to be awful to'

the commentary is indeed more hateful and irksome than anything that Attack Attack guy wrote. Sure he can't write for toffee, but the journo's writing and overall "HAR HAR HAR LOOK AT THIS GUY, HE CAN'T EVEN PUT A SENTENCE TOGETHER WHAT A MORAN" is about as entertaining as a rusty nail. Considering one is the bass player in a shit post-emo band and the other tries to pass himself off as a writer, I'm struggling to work out who comes off worst.

on the same level as Oatmeal guy's response to the Gawker article, though at least in that situation both participants can take care of themselves rather than being "lol crabcore guy no write good".
