Rating: 1.5/5

Hellmouth has spawned out of Detroit from out of nowhere with no fan fare. When I received this album I had no clue who this was and what to expect. I wish it would have stayed this way as the band’s Ferret Music debut, Destroy Everything. Worship Nothing, makes me want to destroy everything related to this band. We again have a band trying to blend punk, hardcore, and metal into a respectable sound and fail.

The first song gives you a clear indication of what you’re going to get with blast beats and a scream. The vocals transform into a grungy hardcore style while the drums keep up the steady double bass. The vocals are monotone and give all the tracks the feel of same ol’ same ol’. However, I do give credit that the vocals are unique, but I cannot say that is a good thing at this time. The guitarists are trying to give off the grim, dark vibe the band want to put out there. Most of these parts though just come off as tacky and mind-numbing.

One good aspect of this band is the fact that there are no breakdowns found anywhere on the album. I guess this is why there is no buzz surrounding the band, but this is a topic for a college thesis. The guitarists really do not show anything to get excited about, but neither does the drummer. He relies on everything the other metal drummers rely on, and it shows yet another band trying to get in on the current fad.

To make it short and painless, Ferret has dropped the ball with this signing and pushing back the new The Hottness album. This is one of those bands that you wish will go away but somehow manage to stay in the scene for ten to fifteen years and still have respectable album sales. Stay away from this album and band at all cost.

Recommended Song: Dust

haha, i love the song title Praying for Plagues. Sounds like a rip from Bring Me the Horizons 'Pray for Plagues' but this could just be in the mind of the beholder.

i've only heard the myspace tracks, so i can't comment on the entire album, but i felt like those songs were at least a 2.5. they're nothing ground breaking, but at least ferret signed another band that has a darker crusty sound and aren't trying so hard to look like american apparel models.

These guys aren't too bad. Review is well written, if not a tad harsh.

I listen to a lot of this stuff and I just don't see how this is that bad in comparison to a lot of bands in the genre...also there should at least be some mention that the lead singer from the suicide machines is in the band.
