I can't believe how bad this band is, I mean seriously. And if I hear anyone carry on on about how the bassist is attractive... grr.
I was going to review this, with the same rating, well done anyway.

It's quite sad i love The Complete Guide To Needlework and Goodbye To The Gallows but save for a couple songs this was just aweful.I thought they were going to go on a more melodic route but save for Chicagos Finest and the instrumental Dry Ice(the best tracks on the album) they didn't.Heres hoping they redeem themselves but after this cd, i highly doubt they will...

Emmure can breakdown in the middle of a breakdown. Gallows was much better.
And to Echo, yeah, Kurt Angle.

ive only heard a few songs off of this, and they were a big bag of suck. if they are all like this, then Gallows was much better imo.

I'd like to start off by saying, I was just like all of you. I heard The Respect Issue, and I didn't really like it. I thought it was mediocre, that it was a boring version of the other two (superb albums) they put out. But then, at an Emmure show, I decided, fuck it, I'll buy it, they're nice dudes.

And I'm glad I did.

The more I listened, the more I started to like it, to hear interesting little nuances that I'd missed before. Granted, if you don't like Deathcore and especially Core heavy Deathcore, then this album is not for you. There ARE breakdowns aplenty, but they have a serious groove, and don't all sound the same. If a band using breakdowns alot made them shitty, then Meshugguh would be mindless crap. And they're not. And neither is Emmure. Songs like "Sound Wave Superior," while based almost completely on breakdowns, don't sound contrived, and don't get old.

The vocals on the album are superb. Let me tell you, people might say they're empty, generic, all that shit, but I actually know the singer, and I've talked to him long enough to know he's a genuine guy; this shit is real. I guess you can't argue with taste, but knowing that lyrics are real instantly makes me like them more. And I think they're just well written overall.

Emmure also shows off their more melodic side on a few tracks, the first of which is called "Chicago's Finest." It's got a painfully groovy beat that has serious potential to get in your head and stick there for days. The lyrics are well performed and inspiring. There's a really interesting, catchy guitar solo at the end, by a guest guitarist, which adds another cool layer to the song.

The next somewhat melodic track is "Rough Justice," another very inspiring song, that shows off some almost flat out metal riffs. The song goes into some brutal, dissonant breakdowns, so it's not melodic riff from to back at all.

The last melodic track is the very light instrumental, "Dry Ice." It has very interesting leads playing over the chords. Wait, non-power chords? In a deathcore band? Yep, this song has em. It has serious jazz elements in there, which are very interesting, and play with your expectations.

But don't get me wrong. This album is obscenely brutal. From "Sound Wave Superior's" superior chugtastic grooviness, to "You're More Like Friend without the 'R' 's" death-y descending layered riffs, this album is skullfuckingly brutal.

Yes, I'll admit, this is their least awesome effort out of the 3, but to be fair, those two discs were masterpieces.

Hmm...nice review...?


I figured the lyrics were real and everything...but that still doesn't make them any better...I mean...Slipknot's lyrics are "real" and they usually suck...all in all it just comes down to opinion...as far as breakdowns go...you can't even begin to compare a Messhugah breakdown to this...the ONLY time signatures here are 3/4 and 4/4 as far as I can tell...which bears no resemblence at all to a breakdown in something crazy like 21/16 with drum parts in two different time signatures..This Message Edited On 09.19.08

This review rules! I didnt even think to look this band up until I saw somebody commenting on it. This band is sweated highly amongts people I know that love (insert stupid title)core. And this was one of the bands my best friend let me hear. Felt bad telling him these guys had about as much originality as a burned cd. This Message Edited On 09.19.08
