Crabcore and the Effect of Expectations
Our first two releases this week come in as sort of different sides to the same coin. Bodom are coming off an album that we praised and thought was getting close to a return to form. Sevendust, however, are coming off an album that we thought (apparently in the minority) was lackluster. So, with varying hopes and exceptions, what do we think of the new ones? Well, listen, and we’ll tell you! ALSO!! Mr. M. Clancey joins us for the Fit for an Autopsy review, so make sure you stay for that too!
Children of Bodom – I Worship Chaos (Nuclear Blast)
Sevendust – Kill the Flaw (7Bros)
Fit for an Autopsy – Absolute Hope, Absolute Hell (eOne)
Kowloon Walled City – Grievances (Neurot)
Children of Bodom – I Worship Chaos
In case you were wondering, no, I didn’t end up taking any metal-horn pics on my trip to Disney World this year. If you wanna see some from last time I went, check out this old post. Instead, here is a pic of me rockin’ my Deftones shirt with Goofy, and shot of yours truly in the ridiculous hat I wore the entire vacation (and return trip home). You’re welcome.
