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

Mind bending riffz accompanied by sick-as-fuck br0downz and inspirational lyrics. Homophobes and misogynists rejoice!

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)

Emmure and innovation usually find themselves separated so much it's not all that astonishing. All of their releases ranging from Goodbye to the Gallows to the latest studio album Eternal Enemies rely on a broken, scarred formula largely comprised of chugging riffs and a bit of an overemphasis on the breakdowns; the band's debut was at least promising back then and is arguably Emmure's prime, if this existed in their case. Slave to the Game is a record that hardly stops rolling in the dirt of monotony, but it's not an entirely bad offering (just tiresome). Unsurprisingly, the melody-driven "MDMA" and "Umar Dumps Dormammu" with the latter's decent usage of electronics are my recommended tracks.

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.

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

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...

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

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.

"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.

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.

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

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.

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.
