For What Is Worth - Thoughts Are My Enemies (CD)

For What Is Worth
Thoughts Are My Enemies
by Yiannis Dafopoulos at 10 December 2007, 1:46 PM

Hmmm, second release from the Greek Trailblazer Records and if I have to face a similar situation to what I faced with BLEED, I better start copying and pasting the same words I have said again and again right now. I really won't stand one more Metalcore release. We have reached a dead end guys!

FOR WHAT IS WORTH hail from Athens, Greece (expected). Even though they were formed only five years ago (2002), they have already managed to release a full-length album (their debut one obviously) and a 4-way split CD with VODKA JUNIORS, 925 and XLOS. Now you will probably be wondering… What do these guys play?

They play the one thing I wished they didn't, Metalcore! Therefore, you can easily understand that I won't spend much time on a release that meets every single 'expectation' and made me get bored to the bone. FOR WHAT IS WORTH draws influences from bands like UNEARTH, DARKEST HOUR, THINE EYES BLEED and DESPISED ICON and offers an EP release with melodic leads, relentless drumming and harsh vocals that I have heard a million times in the last years. I really don't want to seem racist towards the specific Metal sub-genre, but I see no point in seeing bands having the exact same sound.

The EP has also one more negative thing, which is the production. At least Metalcore has a more than good sound, so it manages to save the day several times. The fact is that Thoughts Are My Enemies has a totally flat sound, and when you listen to the live tracks, the thing becomes much worse.
