Although Ohio-based metalcore troupe Attack Attack!‘s intention of making This Means War a seamless, fluent record is obvious even before the first listen (a quick scan of the album’s track listing reveals the repeated use of the word “the” in every song title), I was expecting a smooth record – not a repetitive one. But alas, I was once again confronted with a rather disappointing release from the four piece. After their bland rerelease of their self-titled album in summer 2011 (review), I was hoping Attack Attack! would redeem themselves with their third studio effort, and although this record is definitely worthy of a few kudos, it was not on par with what I would typically expect from the creative, genre-blending band I love.

As a big fan of Attack Attack! it’s safe to say that I was stoked when I heard they would be doing a reissue of their self-titled sophomore effort. It seemed appropriate to me that, one year later, the album that had been the soundtrack to my summer of 2010 would return to breathe new life into the months of July and August. Listening to this album was both nostalgic and renewing for me. Read on to see what I thought of this deluxe reissue, which includes 4 new tracks, 2 remixes, and 2 acoustic pieces.
Attack Attack! just released a deluxe reissue of their self-titled album (on iTunes) and are about to wrap up their headlining dates on the Vans Warped Tour. After that, the band is heading to South America for several tour dates. So while the guys are gone, they figured they’d impart some wisdom upon us by giving us their Top 10 Worst Ways To Be Murdered In A Movie. Personally, I’ve seen a few worse ways (how about Emil from Robocop? Yeesh), but I will admit that I would NEVER want to experience any of these deaths.

Today we’re bringing you Man Of Stone from the badass Detroit metal band Battlecross who were recently signed to Metal Blade Records. I had the pleasure to chill with guitarist Hiran at a house party of one of the Black Dahlia Murder guys and he was metal to the f*cking core! Let’s just say I have no worries about these guys blowing up. Their Metal Blade Records debut album Pursuit of Honor will be coming out August 2nd, so make sure to pre-order your copy.

Needless to say, American hardcore music has been one of the most influential subcultural movements in recent history. It’s blisteringly fast and abrasively loud quality has led many critics, both past and present, to describe it as “talentless”, “unlistenable” and “too ugly to be considered music”. And yet, the hardcore scene still thrives today. Its mark can be seen everywhere from music festivals to current hairstyle trends, but perhaps the most interesting outcome of the genre is the rise in popularity of the use of its infamous suffix, “-core” has experienced. Nowadays, “-core” can be used to modify just about any word you can think of, both creating new genres of music and describing the odd stuff that comes along with them. Here are my top 6 most ridiculous uses of the suffix “-core” and where you can see them in action.
