Artist discography


Ok, first off. This is an angry album. There is a lot of screaming and shouting going on so if you do not like that in you music, this is not for you. It is as simple as that. These Germans sounds like a more punk version of Fightstar or maybe even Deftones.

I do like me some aggressive music sometimes and I guess this CD would be perfect when you are pissed off at the world and want some screaming to go berserk to. How about the song title Pure Anger? The perfect song to go crazy to! Let me tell you that it is a very angry track. That pattern follows through the entire CD, if I was to sum it up with one word it would be: anger.

I quickly notice that there are 14 tracks on this CD and after listening to half of it I realize that that has to be too many. This kind of music is best enjoyed in short sessions. Half way through this CD I tend to drift away and lose focus of the music. They are hammering along on the double pedal, they are playing so many down-tuned riffs it makes my head spin, they are screaming the verses and singing/shouting the choruses but it becomes stale after awhile. By the end of the CD I found myself thinking that it was way too long. I cannot remember any single song after listening to this once, the weird thing being that I cannot do that after two, three plays either. It just passes by.

The music itself is not that bad, if you like the Fightstar’s fastest songs and the same from Deftones you might want to check this out. That goes for fans of Throw the Fight as well and maybe even for fans of Biohazard. Just bear in mind that all those bands are better than Emil Bulls. Somehow, this is way too easy to forget, music like this should stick to your brain like maple syrup on pancakes. Oh, did I mention that they sound angry?
