So terrible. The fun riffage has been replaced 90% by chugs and breakdowns. Fronz's vocals are stupid now. They took the party metal atmosphere too far, and lost what they were ever good for. Big letdown.

Honestly if you haven't liked any of their previous efforts, this wont be for you, but I legitimately enjoyed parts of Outlawed, so decided to give this one a listen. Beneath the ridiculous lyrics and overabundance of breakdowns there is some musical talent struggling to break free, with a few neat guitar solos and an overall southern-metal swagger; but just when it starts to get interesting, oh wait it's time for a breakdown. 'About That Life' is by no means a classic, by no means musically or lyrically interesting but that's not the point. Perhaps the best way to describe 'Atilla' is as the 'Limp Bizkit' of this generation; musically bullshit, but decent in a live setting. In any case, at the end of the night in a moshpit, ears begin to loose the ability to distinguish technical musicianship; and it's perhaps here where 'About This Life' will find greatest success. Yes it's dumb, yes it's repetitive, but much like a Roland Emmerich or Michael Bay film, there's a perverse part of me which revels in the adrenaline fulled stupidity, which (in the words of the band) makes me want to 'fuck church, hit a bong, then go smash a fucking bottle'. Well, almost. If you're new to the band, give this one a miss, get 'Outlawed' instead.

I've actually heard it, and I like it tbh.rIt's not 'serious' music. Just something to get fucked up and party to.

I would enjoy this a lot more if was on drugs or alcohol while listening to it, that's
pretty sure. Kind of fun and over the top but still, on a musical aspect not really much to
offer. As I said, a beer or seven would do well

At heart, this album is no worse than the average deathcore record. The band possess a good vocalist who displays excellent range (br00tal growls, piercing shrieks, wiggerish rapping) and writes lyrics that, while immensely shallow sounding, will cause numerous LOL moments and fit incredibly well with the groovy, bouncy party metal that is displayed in abundance on this surprisingly varied and incredibly addictive 5th album.

" I like a bad bitch".... That is all I needed to hear. This band is fun and ready to party it up. They really hit a homerun with this one

Opposed to Attila's other albums such as Outlawed and Rage, they actually tried out new things in this album, and it actually sounds great. I believe that Fronz actually succeeded in what many other artist have tried to do, but failed. He combined Rap, and Hardcore/Deathcore. Also, when he ties his fast paced, deathcore like screams into his songs, that's what makes his songs unique and interesting.rI don't really see why people hate this album. There is a few songs that are boring and I probably wouldn't listen to, but they have a steady metalcore/deathcore sound going for them. r
|1.0 awful||lecolumbus | August 8th 13|
Their previous stuff was tolerable for what it was but this album just falls into self-parody. Absolutely awful stuff.
