Versus The Bear
Review by Wiley on January 6, 2010.
I am currently in pain. The kind of pain that brings suicide to mind, and not a good suicide with warm drinks, pain killers and a hot tub. Wait... even that could be taken positive, and that is certainly not where this is going.
Upon enduring just two minutes of Amnesia Amnesia's (thankfully) limited run "Vs Bear", I am umbfounded. Fact is, this painful din is about as exemplary of the results of American mass consumerism and the results of "free" music as I can think of. Quality, groove, hook, texture and content have been foregone placing aimless discordance (sans exploration), monotony, and endlessly overdone, crap-simple trends in their stead. Take all of the things you thought nu metal might quite possibly ever have had going for it (in any optimistic perspective you may have), and completely burn those things from your mind. What you have left is this hulking, steaming pile of shit that some high schooler thought was going to be the newest thing in "Experimental/Noisecore/Nu-metal".
Contributing any further observations about this mess would be a waste of your time and mine. Please, avoid the headache.
