How did I get to know the band: Again, Metal Devastation Radio approached me and at first I didn't want to write about it, but then I saw that it should go in the direction of Rob Zombie and Rammstein. So let's give the album a chance.
What do I think of the disc? Yes, here and there it reminds me of Rob Zombie, but somehow it doesn't have its charm. To me the album sounds mostly like modern hard rock, so not for me. I'll save myself further band comparisons at this point. Yes, they master their instruments, but they don't manage to arouse emotions in me or inspire me to dream. But what completely rips me out are the Metalcore touches they have in them.
The only song I could listen to is the Tears for Fears cover EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD. It's quite a recreation of the original, even with the tone and voice. But the soul is missing. And the fact that they made it a little harder, I don't accept as my own interpretation either.
Conclusion: Absolutely nothing for me. It sounds to me like a mix of the popular modern rock/metal bands that get airplay when the station wants something guitar-heavy in their rotation. If you want, you can take a look for yourself here: fullmetalmayhem
