The Blackout Argument - Remedies (CD)

The Blackout Argument
by Yiannis Dafopoulos at 03 March 2009, 7:45 PM

The previous album by this whatevercore (as I like to call them) band was not so pleasant. Nothing different here as it seems except for the change of singer. I am sorry but all this trendcore stuff are too hard for me to understand, even though I am really young and I have talked to many people that listen to this kind of music. It seems I was born at the wrong time…

The German act exists for only three years and now releases its sophomore full-length for Lifeforce Records. As I said in my review on their previous album, they tried to mix Hardcore, Emo and stuff like that resulting in this Hardcore/Emocore/Screamo or however the fuck they call it. I was never too good at this music, but I really do my best to be as objective as possible. The fact is that when I listen to a band with a guy screaming (literally) and some melodic vocals lay upon a wannabe brutal music I can't take it serious. They themselves describe their music as emotional, and this emotional melodic Hardcore crap does not have an impact on me (and on any metalhead I suppose).

I guess they are considered to be good at what they do. Almost every time I don't like such a band and I happen to ask someone from the specific scene, he/she always tells me that it kicks ass. So just for your info, every time I give a negative review to a whatevercore band and you listen to such music, go and buy the album. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that this is a concept album on the curative effects of the Bach flowers. I am sorry but the Metal scene was always about other topics, not how to build a spa.
