This… this song man… holy shit… I honestly just chose to review this song because of the band’s name… but… god DAMN this is a good song. I’ve felt physically threatened by songs before, but this song would rob you by knifepoint in broad daylight.
The song starts off with some creepy as guitar sliding up and down between two notes. It then starts chugging along before the bass and drums join the build up to some of the most gut-wrenchingly hardcore vocals I’ve heard in my life. This vocalist seriously sounds kind of like he is intentionally hurting himself to get this sound that he is producing out, but he just doesn’t give two fucks because HE’S THE JUGGERNAUT BITCH! Nah but really, this guy has a killer set of pipes and lyrics that would make you feel things more than witnessing Bambi’s mother get killed and the ending of Titanic at the same time would.
The guitars aren’t crazy shredtastic, but the riffing and progressions used throughout the song are enough to make my nipples tremble in excitement. Seriously, this guy knows how to put together a fucking song! What they lack in virtuosity, they more than make up for with their Songwriting ability. The chugs are all in the perfect places, the builds ups work amazingly and none of the breakdowns are just open notes! Hell, I’m even okay with the bass just following the guitar in this song, just because of how well it all works! I can’t even think of a clever joke for this paragraph, it’s just awesome!
The drums are incredible. Holy shit this motherfucker is tight. Tighter than a ziplocked gate. Tighter than your little sisters jeans that you stole to look cool during your awkward scene phase. Tighter than that housewife down the road who is getting restless since her husband is too busy working all the time (I should go visit her…). This guy has some amazing drum work, some crazy good fills, great use of his cymbals… just… man, can I please get to know you? I just wanna be around you all the time.
I can’t really go much more into this song without ruining it for you all. Just listen to these guys and download their whole EP. You can get it for free or even pay a little if you want! It’d be so worth it.
Bass: I’m actually cool with it/10
Overall IPHYB Rating: 8.5/10
