!WARNING: HYPERBOLE TO FOLLOW.
this is the heaviest thing since Mare, which is quite an accomplishment. they have the same f’ed up melodic sense that makes it intensely emotional. except they grind it. which is awesome. even more awesome is the fact that they occasionally let the melody slowly impale you. (the end of ‘hospital fat bags’ for example)
there are also a few lyrics the really stand out for me: ‘dumber than a bag of hatebreed fans’ is pretty great to hear.
the highlight of the album for me, though, is a very satisfying expression of disgust for our “culture” which climaxes with a “seacrest out.” i think it’s in ‘hell crown.’ anyway, it’s amazing.
IF YOU ARE DISGUSTED BY THIS CULTURE’S BANALITY, HYPOCRISY, AND COMPLACENCY, BUY THIS RECORD. or just do it because it’s not corny.
