The Bunny The Bear - The Stomach For It

About a year or so ago, I was unfortunately shown a video for Victory Records' Design the Skyline. It was the worst thing I've ever heard. Almost as if on cue, a little bit later I heard of another Victory signing that I was told would rival the shit storm of that band. That band was The Bunny The Bear, was it worse? Well, maybe not, but it certainly wasn't anywhere remotely close to good. It was still an ear raping.

A year later, the band is back with a followup album. I don't know what to say. One song of them was more than enough, having to listen to an entire album by them is surely on par with the death knell of a loved one. This is without a shadow of a doubt the hardest album I've ever had to suffer through to write a review. It is absolute garbage.

If you asked me 10 years ago where I thought metalcore would go, I certainly never would have guessed it would be crossed with awful dance music. Words cannot express the utter shit they put down on the album. Some people praise this as originality. Well folks, not all originality is good and some things never need to be done. This is near the forefront of things that shouldn't have happened.

With the gimmick of two singers wearing masks (a bunny and a bear of course) and one screaming something awful and another whining with a sound that would make dogs howl, I'm sure the kids eat this shit up. 3 albums in 3 years, all equally awful, they seem to know their time is limited and they're going to run the shit train into the ground. It's incredible what passes as music these days.

This seriously sounds like two bands in separate practice studios fighting for sound. The synth pop band takes the foreground often with vocals like a poor man's Mars Volta only to be battled by the most generic "heavy" riffs you've ever heard. The mix is terrible. If you're going to mix this many sounds at once you're already treading uneasy waters, doing so with a bad mix only makes the assrendous music sound that much terrible. It's one big steaming hot mess of noise.

I generally try to find a redeeming factor when I listen to bands. I cannot find a single one on this album. Fans of the band, surely "rebellious" high school kids, will scream I'm an asshole. Come back in 5-10 years and let us know how much you still care about this band and tell us what they're doing now. Guarantee they will not be polluting the masses with this dreck.

Kim Kardashian, lol.

Recently someone I know asked me to listen to an album by Skip the Foreplay. I wanted to punch him in the face after about five minutes of listening.

If this band is anything like those assbags, then no thank you.

Holy fucking shit, I regret searching that band. They're like the deathcore version of this band. Goofy white boys from Montreal getting "crunk" or whatever. Goddamn, I cannot believe "music" like this exists.
