If Obama churned out jobs like how Emmure produces breakdowns we'll skyrocket out of the recession.

Will suck huge ass crackers... Will have creative lyrics. Something along the lines of " I wanna watch u punch her clit"

isn't there a petition somewhere we can sign that says emmure can't make music anymore? i value human life but the members of emmure aren't human, they're faggots.

im a sucker for breakdowns and while i like emmure, id never rate an emmure album above a 3.5. the unstructured messes that are called emmure songs are back on this album and about 5 or 6 of them are almost identical. Protoman, Blackheart Reigns, MDMA, Bison Diaries, and AI all were songs that i liked(especially the WELCOME TO HELL slam-ish breakdown on blackheart) and their new obsession with melodic riffs is kinda good at times(MDMA sounds kinda cool)

I'd like to chop off Frankie's dick and feed it to my dogs, but I'd also like to know that even dogs have taste.

Bump

1.0 awfulDazSkunk | March 22nd 14

The fact that this is Emmure is actually the only reason you need to avoid this thing at all costs.

Bump

1.5 very poorJakob Johnson | May 18th 13

"I TRIED MY FUCKING BEST!!!" MDMA is the only song worth listening...and that's only because
it sounds kind of pretty.

2.0 poorZedo Kei | June 6th 12

If you are not familiar with metalcore, it's okay for you to have this stuff. Yea sometimes the bad thing leads you to the good thing. Listening to this, you know what terrible metalcore means, and so, if you already knew what bad metalcore criteria is, and then I know you will search the finest metalcore stuffs! Ciaww...

Bump

1.0 awfulcodyliciousss | June 3rd 12

Nothing witty to say, this album (like all of their previous works) is terrible.

Bump

1.5 very poorDeuce8311 | May 27th 12

Maybe the criticism they receive for this album will convince Emmure that they should wait longer than 14 months before releasing a new album. It would be worth the wait if it means more time and diversity is put into it. Speaker of the Dead wasn't actually too bad in my opinion. There were a few songs that were ok, but there is not much to salvage from Slave to the Game. Frankie is at times incomprehensible as usual, but maybe that's just me. As predicted, there is an overuse of breakdowns, and an underuse of diversity. There is however a bit of melody used on a few tracks. Some elctronics are used here too (though not well). None the less, these factors show that Emmure may be trying to gradually change their sound. This is of course an advisable thing to do, if they want their fanbase to be more than just confused teenagers who are angry at the world.

Bump

3.5 greatSilverandBlack5 | April 26th 12

"Slave To The Game" is a major step for Emmure. As a lifetime listener of them (look at my Goodbye to the Gallows opinions for explanation), they of course have always overused breakdowns, to the point where some of their songs ARE breakdowns. But not here. There are breakdowns aplenty, but they also have proven that there is talent to be had and that they know how to make solid music. Chugging? Yes. Electronics? Yes. But still a step up in every way from the past 2 albums.

Bump

5.0 classicPequenopolis | April 23rd 12

Totally dope bro yeah this is awesome I'm just a slave to the game bro!

0.0 Dr. Luke Sarazine | April 10th 12

Can't think of any creative Emmure insult....shit, breakdown?r

Bump

0.0 ASnideRemark | April 9th 12

Repetitive song structures, mediocre lyricism and a slight step up in instrumentation mark improvement for Emmure, however it still isn't anything innovative and sticks to a boring formula.

Bump

2.0 poorthechodewarrior | April 8th 12

if anyone actually expected something different from their previous albums, you should be shot

Bump

2.5 average ^_^ | April 6th 12

downloaded it, and its kinda mehh. some songs sound good, but their is still the same stuff that you hate about emmure. I guess the good thing is that this cd has the least of it.

Bump

2.5 averageyoufailedme87 | March 28th 12

I must say I'm a little shocked. I wasn't completely bored to tears trying to listen to this album. There's just
enough melody and a different selection of riffs through out the songs to make a it a descent album. The
lyrics are what they are at this point in Emmure's career, can't really expect more then that now.

Bump

2.5 averageasaf | March 22nd 12

i like this one better than the last one. maybe it's mark castillo. yeah, it's mark castillo. okay, now i've gained interest again. and i was there during the my bitter end days...

Bump

3.5 greatPsycotrip | March 22nd 12

Negative breakdown comment. And the raydu raydu. Emmure write songs.
