Emmure has changed a few things on Felony. Felony doesn’t sound like their previous albums that much. Felony isn’t their best album to date. I am still going to give this album five stars, because I know when you see them live you’re going to have the time of your life, when Emmure plays songs live off of Felony. Felony could have been better if they took longer to write Felony, they just released The Respect Issue a little over a year ago, a new album wasn’t necessary until the end of the year. What I don’t like about Felony is that the songs are way too short in time.
Emmure, the band who have already shocked audiences with their scowling, punishing lyrics and vocalist Frankie Palmeri’s sinister smile, is back with the aurally arresting 2009 record, Felony. The band rips apart their enemies, tears through their anger, and reaches a new height of aggression, desperation and destruction on this, their third full-length album. Leading with the mindset that a Felony on your record can change your life, Emmure is out to make their mark on every listener, violently awakening them to the way the world is around them. Armed with their barrage of menacing breakdowns and punishing riffs, Felony is guaranteed to be the record that locks Emmure behind the bars of the spotlight for life, with no chance of parole.

Im diggin the riffs and not minding the cleaner vocals either. I love when bands venture off into new territory while also stickin to there own shiznit. The lyrics are brutal….pretty much the same ol things that frankie likes to talk about. Its awesome stuff for a workout, really pumps me up. Losin the Lionetti brothers really hasnt changed them too much. If anything it changed them for the better. Lovin this new cd and am hopin this band sticks around a while
EMMURE STEPPED IT UP A NOTCH WITH FELONY WHICH IS MUCH BETTER THAN THEIR PREVIOUS ALBUMS ESPECIALLY RESEPCT ISSUE…. FELONY IS MUCH DIFFERENT YET THE GUITAR ON THIS ALBUM IS MUCH BETTER AND EMMURE HAS MADE THEIR BEST ALBUM TO DATE. I DONT WANT TO SIT HERE AND DESCRIBE WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE BUT I CAN TELL YOU ITS WELL WORTH PICKING UP AND I ALSO WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SEE THESE GUYS LIVE BECAUSE THEY TEAR IT UP LIVE LIKE NO OTHER… THIS ALBUM IS A+++ AND FUN AS HELL TO LISTEN TO
This is one of the most interesting albums I’ve heard in a while. Weather that is a good thing or not, all depends on what Emmure you like. This is a very different album from “The Respect Issue” and “Goodbye to the Gallows”. Maybe that is what they are going for though. There is a lot of talking “singing” through the tracks, and it sounds like they have been listening to some Deftones lately, because songs such as Lesson from Nichole and You Sunk My Battleship are very guitar induced riffs, with the later song having some clean vocals. I’m kind of all over the place in this review, because in reality, that’s how the album is. It’s all over the place.
But that’s what I like about it. This is not a rehash of an Acacia Strain album like many people have said Emmure is. This is a bold direction change, and for the most part, I’m down with it. Maybe you will be too.
this album isn’t much different than goodbye to the gallows if you ask me. the “talking” vocals are back. they are used more than on previous albums but i actually like it. breaks them away from the crowd a little. anyone who compares this to nu metal needs their hearing checked. this is just badass metal. period
