shuddering with douchechills @ the singer’s scott stapp pose & leather jacket
We all know that the nu-core movement has been in full effect for a while, but for the most part that has been limited to copying SLIPKNOT and throwing in some bounce riffs here and there. Not my favorite trend in the world, but so far they have avoided what is by far the most nu-metal trope: the thing where the singer is like “watch out, i’m CRAZY!!! don’t mess with me cuz i might SNAP!!! I can’t control myself because im so KRAZY!!!!!!” (often followed by super-contrived, cringy fake laughter)
Well, until now that is, courtesy of new Rise signees CANE HILL who have gone full COAL CHAMBER in their new single/video “Sunday School.” Notes:
- when I googled their name I found out that Cane Hill is apparently some famous asylum in the UK that looks like the set of every crappy straight-to-netflix torture porn movie ever. i am sure they can’t wait to talk about this in interviews so everyone can GET A GLIMPSE INSIDE THEIR TWISTED MINDS!!!!
- super generic church set made me expect an “evil doll” character to appear at some point
- 2:45 the “krazy guy muttering disturbing stuff” part comes in and they go full DOPE/DEADSY. expect them to have matching jumpsuits by this time next year.
you know how sometimes you will see graphic designers post stuff on their facebook or instagram like “This design is for sale!” and it will just say “BAND NAME HERE” on the design? I feel like that’s where they got a lot of these designs from. The Breaking Bad-style one is especially brutal. feels like it should be in some Ocean City boardwalk t-shirt shop next to one that says “SWAG POWER”
