Review Summary: Listen closer.

Jeromes Dream and The Book of Dead Names are two bands that play music that goes to a certain extremity that most people are not used to. Whether it be in chaos, emotion, or heaviness, they play to an extremity, and this split shows them at their most chaotic, emotional, and heavy.

The split is only four minutes in length, but it certainly gets it's point across, and while the two bands don't play the same exact style, they are trying to make the same point. Jeromes Dream plays emoviolence, with chaotic guitar work, crazy rhythms, blast beats, and wailed vocals that tower over the music. The Book of Dead Names play rabid hardcore in the vein of The Cardinal Sin or Swing Kids, and while their music may not be as emotionally impactful as the artistic creations of Jeromes Dream, they are a perfect match on this split, in chaos and heaviness.

One of Jeromes Dream's most well known songs, I Won't Stop Wondering Until You Stop Breathing, is a perfect example of what Jeromes Dream can offer, musically as well as lyrically.

"A whimsical reply to a thoughtful question about nothing. Another creation you thought could change your life. Another person you thought would change your life. Just another mouth to feed. What the *** are you looking at? Did I ask you to love me? Did I say you could love me?"

This split is for fans of extreme music. If you're not ready for raw, honest, and noisy music, then maybe you shouldn't listen to this. If you're looking for something different, something original, and something expressive, I would highly recommend listening to this split. It won't take too much of your time.

So I just found out they never used a mic live, Jeff just screamed unamplified. Holy shit, that
must've give him serious cord damage.

Check Seeing Means More Than Safety or Presents first, it's wayyyyy more accessible than this.

Like, the first 10 times I heard IWSWUYSB all I heard was noise
