As the money in modern metal continues to dry up despite various attempts to enter the mainstream through the hipster community. Useless label Earache records has resorted to signing Metalcore singer/guitarist and now Soundcloud rapper Alireza. This should come as no surprise since rap music has become the pop music of the 80s and the Earache fans at this point are pretty much the same people that download Iphone recorded rap. The reek of desperation and the constant barrage of race politics that have entered the commercial metal universe reaffirms the idea that Modern metal is heading towards its grave and it should be a fun ride as even more obvious cash-grabs will appear that will soon alienate the gullible hipster crowds.
Alireza’s rapping is just the basic bass turned all the way to 11 hip-hop with the same lazy flows and the occasional references to the more emo sections of his band Louder than Quiet. Louder than Quiet, apart from being all black, play the typical “wear your sister’s jeans” metalcore that took off a few years ago and has been almost forgotten. Alireza will enjoy his fifteen minutes for a short while before the trendsters leave metal behind definitely. Expect to see a lot more “diversity” as that seems to be à la mode, and more hilarious ideas from Digby Pearson and the like in pimping themselves out for just enough to buy a cheeseburger or two.
