Regardless of how ridiculous it sounds in name, at least it is something different.

I personally think Age of Reason is slightly better than Gravity, although Gravity has that killer riff coming right in at the beginning and is overall still great. This band's DJ really knows what he's doing.

Band is actually able to get this formula right each time. They have the right mix of both trance and core without making it sound forced or gimmicky.

Why would a band label themselves "crabcore" in the hopes of getting sales?

Well, if you want to:

"dubstep" (no, it's really not at all)
"epic"
"progressive trancecore/electronic"

Many of their songs have dubstep elements, but not all have them as centric as you seem to imply.

"Epic" is subjective.

And the last tag is pretty accurate, many of their songs rarely follow the verse-chorus-bridge form and they have djent guitars on top of that. Trancecore is self-explanatory really.

Look, I don't want to turn this thread into a cesspool, so either leave it or PM me. In the end if anyone cares enough to not buy their music for that soundcloud tag and disdain the actual music, then that's being awfully narrow minded.

Haha I'm just playing around, was a little taken aback with your strongly-worded reply. As one of the many resident electronic nerds here, I take some offense when people throw around random terms like "trance" and "dubstep" without proper grounding - in this case, that's true. Examples of dubstep:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pz8Kp_yELg0
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7lj8G4r6lI
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOnT4j711i8

In all these examples, you'll notice a few things: emphasis on either seriously weighty bass or wobbly midrange, broken beat, slower tempo. The reason I take some offense to Fail Emotions' use of the term is because the songs on the EP have precisely none of these elements, so the use of "dubstep" is flagrantly incorrect.

Also, according to Wikipedia (which may be wrong, of course), "trancecore" is a fusion between post-hardcore/metalcore and elements of electronic music. This doesn't necessarily mean the term itself is actually legitimate (Deviant up there in the first comment would argue the term itself is shit), but the point is there's virtually no electronic influence in the music aside from some random-ass synths.

It exists so they can tie themselves in with the edm crowd and cash in on that scene's popularity

I disagree. The electronic and metal sides of their music are extremely well balanced.

I respectfully disagree(I will say that my first reply was a bit more scathing than it needed to be) with your assessment of their "random-ass synths" and agree completely with peartnoy.

The only reason I think they're not way bigger than they already are is because they're in Russia. The scene for that kind of music over there is like a homeless child.

Ahahaha... Lol I'm really amazed how some of the "all - knowing" critiques are spewing hate. Like they're some kind of elitists. If it's different hate, hate, hate...
Alright chums. Despite that I hope Fail Emotions continue their work because they bring something from the "different" that I like. I love equally my melo deaht/post hardcore/electro/techno styles of music and rarely some of them work right when combined. These guys make it right for the moment, and again for the moment they have rather cult following than a massive fanbase. So in conclusion I'm asking myself... Why this places hate the russian band - Fail Emotions? And why is it named after Soviet Russia's space project who gave birth to Earth's first artificial satellite(Ahahah... man the irony... cracks me up) ?
But hey... It makes for some good laughs at some self taking serious pretentious pricks.
Cheerio ol' chaps ಠ_ರೃ

You made a connection between a band and a space program because... they both originated from the same country? Man, you just redefined six degrees of separation!

The sheer irony of it is what brings the lol in my eyes. Kind of funny combination. I wouldn't be surprised if you just learned this website's name origins.

But it's not even remotely ironic, given the tenuous connection you're trying to make
