Release Date: 2011 | Tracklist

Review Summary: recommended for only the most hardcore of hardcore listeners.

This band lacks imagination. You can hear it in the lyrics, you can see it in the album cover and album title, and you can definitely hear it in the music. Let’s consider the guitars for a moment. At first listen they would impress with their crushing, manly riffs, but after the first few tracks, the illusion dissipates. We soon realize that the band is recycling the exact same guitar part for every song, with only minimal variation. Although it is decent, playing the same riff the entire time defeats the purpose and makes it rather mundane. In fact, it makes the entire album a mundane and completely forgettable experience. It’s like if you were stuck on a desert island and were given an unlimited supply of mashed potatoes – even if they were delicious, you would eventually grow tired of eating those darned mashed potatoes.

To understand the hilarity of this album, you must first understand the lyrics. As you do this, make sure to count the number of times Mat Bruso drops the f bomb in his ill-conceived sentences - it’s every five seconds at least. “Yeah man that’s hardcore, he’s so m3tal” would be the typical response from the random metal guy, but little does such a person know how ridiculous Mosh N Roll actually is. Of course, the lyrics aren’t the worst part about the album, but they sure put the icing on the cake. This is one painful album to listen to.

Aside from the riffs and lyrics are the drums that don’t stand out at all, and the bass guitar which is inaudible. The only remaining factor is Mat Bruso’s “brutal” screams which aren’t awful, but they sure are predictable. Overall, Mosh N Roll is an instantly forgettable metalcore release that not even the return of Mat Bruso can save. It might sound great in a live setting, but in album format it isn't as captivating as it should be. Fans will eat this stuff up, but newcomers would be better off checking out other albums.

They stated they were just trying to make an album that'd be fun to play live, which this does. As a
studio album though i find it to be really really generic, but I enjoy Bruso a hell of a lot more than
the last guy so I gave this a 3. Also on a sidenote if you want a good record by these guys check out
Beauty and the Breakdown.
