I’m sorry but Hatebreed just make me wanna reach for my old Black Flag albums and listen to hardcore that was actually hard and thoughtful. If you like monotone screaming accompanied by repetive, harmonically retarded guitar riffs and forgetable drums and bass, this cd is for you. Some of the lyrics aspire to a greater level than a drunken, spoiled frat boy on a date rape binge, which is good and why this album gets 2 stars instead of one. However I get the feeling that most of the singers experiences come from playing too many video games and watching TV news. I like my metal evil, not just brutal and screw the self-help lyrics, I forgave whatever crimes my parents commited against me a long time ago. Very teenage. No art to it and ultimately dull.
