Review Summary: A three year break did Liferuiner well.

0 of 3 thought this review was well written

Emerging from the Toronto hardcore scene, Liferuiner (aka xLIFERUINERx) attempted to write music that would separate themselves from their straight-edge counterparts, mocking their egocentric lyrics by writing about violence and hatred. Their previous two attempts, outside of their flat-brim fanbase, were received as parodies, their ability to write and play questioned, but their latest release, S.O.S.E. will quiet those who trashed them, and intrigue virgin ears.

Fueled by new inspiration, Sons of Straight Edge showcases well structured songs, less breakdowns, and a transition to more serious themes. The two tracks, S.O.S.E. and 1990, highlight the extended play, both powerful songs with much improved instrumentals and vocals. 1990 focuses on the people we lose and how much they meant to ourselves. Jonny would write on his blog how this song became one for “anyone who had lost someone close to them.” S.O.S.E. is Liferuiner’s most interesting and experimental song to date, hinting at a more melodic future for themselves.

While this album won’t escape the contemporary scene and be heralded as a classic, what Liferuiner’s S.O.S.E. exemplifies is a band’s ability to grow and mature, leaving the listener excited for their future work.

"but their latest release, S.O.S.E. will quiet those who trashed them"

Aren't they a completely different band now with different members?

This is actually a HUGE step up from all their previous work.

They are actually trying to be a real band. Still sucks though.

"This is awesome."

"Digging: Betraying The Martyrs."

Everytime this band came through for local shows in my city, they never had the same members. Just the same vocalist.

Go to the wikipedia page on them. They've had at least 50 different members.
