Who the fuck is Eris? Why should she be your homegirl?
Let’s just get to the point: Eris should be your homegirl because Eris Is My Homegirl is the mnstrmest deathcore band ever. They pretty much went out there and reached the finals in some American Idol type show in their consonant-obsessed Eastern Euro country. Yeah, we Euros are definitely ahead of Americans now.
Yeah. Dem judges’ faces. And bonus points for the dude introducing them trying to pronouce their name in English but it coming out like “zrrghbx brrwbbrzdgh hrbrmrdrzw” anyway.
They also have the obligatory top 40 cover. Now, you might be thinking, so what, every deathcore band has one. They one-upped everybody, though, by doing their top 40 cover with an ancient whale who sang the original version 200 years ago. Can your deathcore band do that? I don’t think so!
Can your deathcore band play an outdoor New Year’s Eve show and not get booed by all the random drunk poor people? I don’t think so!
The most impressive part is that they’re not some super-modern trancecore band with three vocalists and two synth dudes that basically sounds like more electronic Disneypunk 90% of the time. They do all this with a very old-school lineup – no electronics, just one dude doing all the vocals, not a lot of strings on the guitars… There’s autotune, clean parts, and a bit of semi-synchronized crab squats, but not much by modern standards. They just somehow managed to turn regular deathcore into music normal people can sort of like. Even old people on the TV show.
I guess they just seem like such nice boys, it’s hard for grandmas to dislike them. See, you don’t need trance synths and fancy modern production to be popular in 2012. You just have to talk and look like a bunch of little Biebers with slightly weirder hair. There’s your recipe for success.
Oh, and they have a song called “They See Us Trollin They Hatin”. Of course.
You hatin? Or you down with my homegirl Eris?
You see them reaching global fame and getting some classic rock icon like Jim Morrison or Bob Marley to join them on stage at Madison Square Garden?
