The attack on the low chugs = boner achieved, sickest guitar sound ever
I am not sure how MOTIONLESS IN WHITE manages to keep flying the mallgoth flag in 2012, but I am glad that they do. I have always had a little bit of a soft spot for bands who hit that sweet spot where they are some combination of gothic, scene, metalcore and/or hard rock, but sadly those bands seem to come along less and less frequently every year.
My second-favorite track on the record, ft Brandan from BLEEDING THROUGH
I really wanted to love the older MIW records, but they just didn’t quite click with me. Like, they were good but not great. I felt like there was potential for 18V-levels of greatness that just needed to be unlocked, like in a teen movie where the shy, nerdy girl takes off her glasses, lets down her hair and instantly becomes super hot. Apparently the magic ingredient for MIW was working with our friends at AUDIOHAMMER STUDIOS, because this new album is head and shoulders above any of their old shit. Also, one of the sickest guitar sounds I have ever heard in my life.
