bitter end guilty as charged

so this is the new album from bitter end. i picked this up at the show they played with donnybrook! and the mongoloids. i like what they did with this one even though i thought that it could have had more riffs like the previous album. what they did do was get more metal which isnt all that bad. to be honest i havent really listened to this album all that much so more likely then not i will add more to this after i have listened more. i really dig the color it is a coke bottle clear with some black in the middle.

so i just listened to most of this in the car and i feel that i can more accuratly describe whats going on. first of all, one of the things that makes this bands style is Daniel Rosen's lyrics and vocal style. i have noticed that there are politically and socially themed songs, and even though im sure there are other bands i listen to that do the same there is something about Bitter End that just makes me notice it more. this brings me to Rosen's vocals. now i have noticed that it doesnt seem like screaming but more like he's talking loudly. the best comparison i can think to make is like the singer of death threat. the other thing about this album is that it seems that they got heavier and a little bit more metal. its not something i can really explain but if you listen to the album and keep this in mind it should make sense.

the mongoloids new beginnings 7

so this is the latest from the mongoloids. for those who dont know the only original member is greg the rest are fill ins. now at first i was sketchy on that because i wondered how could you have the mongos without the rest of the dudes? well the answer is this 7in. i heard word before i listened to this that they actually got better with new members. well they did. its only four songs but in comparison to their last album(which had the real members) i like this a lot more. to be honest if they kept going with whoever they had when they recorded id still listen to them. apparently this vinyl is, according to joey cox, a test press or something like it of the new album. i think he said there was only like 45 or so pressed. i dont know how true this is but whatever i would have bought it anyway.
