it seems like it’s a common trend for most of my favorite bands to only have like a few demo songs + maybe an EP before disppearing from the scene forever. this might be due 2 the fact that a full length album is too long for my poor attention span to follow, not to mention, this way the band has as little time as possible to “mature as artists” and start taking their music in a crappy direction.
we are danger is the epitome of this, with their complete discography consisting of one 3-song EP, 2 stand-alone singles, and a drake cover. in a scene overflooded with crappy local bands who pay tyler carter to do guest vocals on their latest single in attempts to get noticed, these guys were definitely a breath of fresh air.
the band’s first song off their early demo/EP treads in the “we’re not sheriff we want to be an easycore band or a crabcore band” territory, which is never a bad thing. i also love the autotuned vocals at 1:22, probably the most blatant/non-subtle use of autotune i’ve heard since the first attack attack album, very strong ‘no fux given’ vibes.
as you can see, the band seems to have had the image down right with the ripped black jeans and hair slightly longer than the girls in courage my love. i love the contrast between super heavy and poppy as it goes into the gay clean singing part.
obviously it wouldnt be a tr00 risecore band without a top 40 cover.
i have been informed that this is an early incarnation of the band, which sounds like a much poppier version of what they started to do later. to me, this basically sounds like the musical version of photobombing… i just picture a young hopeful risecore vocalist showing up to an easycore band’s practice and screaming periodically throughout the song
that awkward moment when a crabcore song is heavier than 95% of “real” metal and hardcore bands. sadly this is the last song that they ever put out, and they seemed to have disappeared since then, with no signs of activity on their facebook page since last spring.
whatever happened to WE ARE DANGER? did they finally decide to mature and start a srscore band? have they been replaced already by thousands of other interchangeable bands?
