Dear Relapse, I want to make one thing clear. I am a fan. Your contributions to the underground music scene have been nothing short of amazing over the years and amidst the trend hopping that often plagues heavy music, you've been a mainstay. Even in the early stages of '08 you've had some great success, pumping out stellar releases from Disfear, Unearthly Trance, and Jucifer. All of those are top ten list material, hands down. But there's something I'd like to talk about with you. This might not be easy, but it's the right thing to do. Please stop releasing lackluster electronic grind albums. I can overlook Genghis Tron. I certainly respect their effort, although the results weren't quite up to snuff. But Vverevvolf Grehv What is this Did I spell that correctly Should I capitalize the first two letters to maintain their usage as a W substitute This is just garbage. I gave it a chance. I really did. But even from the beginning seconds of "Emancipation of Dissonance" I knew that it would only go downhill. As random electronic noises gave way to the disc's true content (read: slightly less random electronic noises accompanied by abysmal industrial drum tracks and cringe-inducing single string guitar riffs), my hope bottomed out. Other tracks fall into the same sort of pattern, so let's not waste our time on descriptions. And Jesus, the title track is just noise. Seven and a half minutes of noise positioned right in the fucking middle of the CD. I suppose it's a nice break from the actual offerings of the disc, but seriously Who approved that And better yet, who approved the entire thing But Relapse, you shouldn't be ashamed. I didn't mean to raise my voice. I'm not mad. I'm just disappointed. And it's not like you've even been caught up in these types of records for a while-this is merely the beginning stages. But I care about you, Relapse, and I've seen how these things start. First it's just a taste. Then that taste becomes a quiet addiction. Then, before you know it, friends, family and co-workers begin to develop suspicions, not believing your adamant denial. And then, well, I don't have to tell you what comes next. So I say this as not just a fan, but as a friend: do the right thing and cap this electronic-grind-noise-absurdness right here and right now and we can all move on to brighter days. We're all pulling for you. Keep your stick on the ice, Nick

tremendous review.


fux0r_ 3/31/2008 12:45:16 AM

genghis is much better than this gay shit, they actually produce music with good parts. this is just annoying queer noise with gay non-metal parts, under the guise of metal. the faint suck, they should stop making music also.


A K U M A _ 3/31/2008 1:46:14 AM

how did this get a 3?


ralph_ 3/31/2008 9:42:20 AM

i like noise a lot. i also like electronic grindcore. i thought this was a good fusion of both. quite possibly, people at this website are not the target audience. but it wasn't that bad.


chris_ 3/31/2008 12:40:15 PM

this is - without a doubt - the worst thing i have ever heard in my entire life. i bet the no-talent ass-clown that made this trash thinks it has artistic merit. what a f*cking joke.

relapse has been releasing garbage bands for a while now....why are you surprised?


Therraunch_ 3/31/2008 8:45:46 PM

Be ashamed.


din_ 3/31/2008 8:48:04 PM

Fuckmymom_ 4/1/2008 4:30:08 PM

this cd is not catchy, this review is awesome. f*ck stupid techno grind....leave it to agoraphobic nosebleed or something


dracula_ 4/1/2008 11:32:17 PM

people on lambgoat LOVE to read degrading reviews, recent trends genuinely prove that.. People would rather tear something apart and feel empowered that their comments might actually have an affect on the artist who may read the review. 1. I guarantee they aren't. 2. I also guarantee that half of these people didn't even listen to the tracks. ps. no care eva and van flip comments are still fun and interesting so let me have em!

"Keep your stick on the ice" classic. Any reference to hockey immediately catapults my day from shitty to worth something.


Danny_ 4/3/2008 5:51:59 AM

First off: I really liked the technique of your review. Well done. Indeed one of the best reviews I read so far on this website. But I strongly disagree with the content. Genghis Tron is certainly not a lackluster effort. And the reviewed band is certainly not as greet as GT, I'll agree on that. But they simply got a 3 because you don't like this type of music. I expect a little bit more objectivity from a reviewer.


SunnyvaleTrash_ 4/3/2008 10:42:56 PM

i will never, ever, listen to this


godforbids_ 4/4/2008 3:57:25 PM
