This Or The Apocalypse: Dead years
02/10/12 || Lord K Philipson
And this is the kind of album I have to review the very day before my 39th birthday. Lucky. Fucken. Me. Well, better now than tomorrow, I guess. Whatever. I always wondered what kind of fucktards would call themselves This Or The Apocalypse. And with “funny” titles such as “Hell praiser”, “Power hawk” and “In wolves” one would think this can possibly be nothing short of sucktastic. And guess what? TOTA fucken blow armies of non-hetero goats.
This new breed of “metal”, you know – the Bring Me The Horizons and whatnots of the world, is so fucken repulsive. It’s killing metal by the minute. There’s no soul, there’s no heart. There’s just sterile-as-fuck productions, Pro-Tool’d-beyond-recognition, eh… music, and screamy shit vocals with the occasional clean-sung chorus. I fucken despise this genre so much it’s not even funny anymore. I have said it before, but it rings true to this day (and from this day forward): there should be a fucken law preventing bands from doing this. It’s a plague. It’s a fucken crime. They all sound exactly the same, their covers look exactly the same and they look exactly the same.
This is the music that the youth of today worship. This is to them what Metallica was to us in the 80’s. It’s so fucken sad I wanna stab myself in both eyes with a fork. Repeatedly. Trust me when I say I choose the goddamn apocalypse over this – any fucken day of the week for the rest of my life.
I want all of you, the bands in this genre, to die. I seriously want you to die. All of you. Believe it or not, there’s a actually a train station built just for you. It’s called:
