There's a problem when your music video is considerably more entertaining than your boring song. And that because of... NOT THE BEES!!! 4/10

The instrumentation on there is pretty good, but I'm not a huge fan of the vocalist. It gets a little easier to sit through as the track goes on though. 7.5/10

Just jumping in here for a second, the track D.E.A.D.R.A.M.O.N.E.S was one of my first experiences with the genre, and because of that Modern Life Is War will always hold a special spot in my heart.

You're doing it right, though I prefer MLIW's more atmospheric tracks. They do both styles well, but the uniqueness of their more laidback songs just makes them seem more unique.

Witness is the only album of their's that I'm familiar with, and it's been a few years since I've listened to it last. I think it might be time that I go back and check some more of their stuff out though.

You really should. I'm honestly confused why every site that categorizes them calls them a hardcore band, when they seem so clearly a post-hardcore band. I mean, they play a form of hardcore so evolved that to not call them post-hardcore would seem to demean the concept of post-hardcore itself, even while elevating basic hardcore.

Heavy and sludgy in a good way, although a little on the slow side for me, generally. However, the production seems solid and cohesive, even if the vocals aren't that compelling. 6/10.

I'm sorry about that.

That was pretty sick. The intro had a nice TG/SPK feel to it. Once it took off I thought it was all cool but thought the drums were lacking until the breakdown at 1:15ish. 8/10



Don't be scared by Merzbow, it's probably not what you think.
