If you want to write about how music makes you feel, open your own pretentious artfag blog. Dont post it in a review section. Waste of space. But what do me know me just discovered fire and you college real person durrr durrrrrrr
It really is when any joker with an internet connection can pull up youtube and listen to a song faster than they can read a typical 'review'. Not sure why it's ok to dissect/discuss movies but doing the same for music makes you gay. Yeah, this was kind of depressing/nostalgiac/etc, but that's because that's exactly what the record is! I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't feel anything from music, whether it's claustrophobia, suffocation, depression, happiness, etc. There are plenty of ear-candy bands that have no depth that are fun to listen to and there are plenty of bands with artistic merit who are equally enjoyable to listen to. They both have a time and place and one is not better than the other.
I wonder what people would think of a review like this. Taken from Horrible Eyes 4 by way of Dauthus 3 (i think, HE4 says 8 but I think there are only 3 Dauthus's).
"Bloody Vengeance is like an old ship full of corpses, tilting one way and tilting the other way as it carves black waters, bodies falling off the edges where sharks catch them mid-air, and as soon as some dozen have fallen off at one side, the ship tilts towards the other side, and like this it travels all the hateful seas while red suns rotate the months."
Not whiny because that particular record isn't whiny. Still no paint by numbers THIS BAND DEATH METAL THEY HAVE SONGS.
