The Sadistic Metal Reviews are were we squeeze all the empty calories out of our guts into easily digestible packages for readers’ amusement. The leftovers are distributed to starving third world children to hasten their Malthusian death through infection with the type of drug-resistant bacteria that can only thrive in a Honey Bun.
Above Aurora – Onwards Desolation (2016)
Fuck we’re gonna listen to some metal and headbang some shit out bro! Fuck yeah bro we’re gonna bang this shit out like I pounded Stacy last Saturday! Oh yeah. What the fuck is this bro? Is this fucking Pantera bro? WTF bro! What the fuck is this? Is this some Pantera shit bro? Are you really trying to bring some Pantera shit into our house bro? Why the fuck would you do that bro? Are you tryin’ to escalate the situation here? We don’t allow those types in our crib bro as they’re fucking degenerate dirty people. This crib is a drug free zone unlike the fucking public high school with the meal vouchers done the street bro. You want your fucking stoner rock, you go down the street bro. Fuck you asshole, I heard only about thirty seconds of fucking metal in that bro so you take that drug away from my place bro as I can’t get raided here and you smoke it with the kids in the parking lot over there bro. You take your fucking strummed power chords and get the fuck out before I call the cops bro.
Behind the Shadows – Raising Hell (2016)
Alice in Chains mixed with occasional Black Sabbath and Blind Guardian riffs. This is what the Insane Clown Posse would sound like if they tried to play black metal.
Betrayal – Infinite Circles (2016)
Arsis worship is a new youth trend now? Our children truly are being emasculated by the liberal media. Infinite Circles is technical metalcore carnival music. Betrayal try to sound tough while wearing jeweled buttplugs. They can’t walk over and punch you in the face; they can only sashay! Oh Lord is that jazz? Why did my fucking secretary have to put on the smooth jazz station again? Wait that’s just the coda; these white boys suddenly think they are Sade.
Slammin’ Thru – Things to Come (2016)
Wannabe power metal datz more metalcore than Manilla Road. Don’t worry bro, you didn’t put on your camo cargo shorts for nuffin; Things to Cum has tonz of breakdownz to hit your pimply-faced buddeez to, loadz of buttrock soloz to play air guitar in the middle of da circle pit to, and emotionality in shittily sung choruses to flick your e-cigs to as hell no ur not carrying a lighter in the pocket with your Xbox controller and My Little Poniez.
Harakiri for the Sky – III: Trauma (2016)
III: Trauma is the third album of screamo metalcore from Harakiri for the Sky pretending to be black metal. All of their riffs could’ve been played on an MTV2 showcase in 2009. This is metalcore for when metalcore idiots are pushing 30, getting fat, streched earlobes getting close to their chin. Metalcore made for hardcore kids who turned into hipsters in polyandrous relationships whose partners cuckhold them in their own bed while they zombie through their Steam games in the other room. Harakiri for the Sky clearly sleep atop sheets stained with the semen of other men. This band has no honor and shouldn’t be allowed to cut their stomach open to save face; they must be crucified and humiliated.
Grey Heaven Fall – Black Wisdom (2015)
Grey Heaven Fall is yet another “Me too!” rehashed black/death metal band that wants to be some sort of Dead Congregation type of atmospheric death metal but with Gorguts and Kvist riffs and without any adrenaline. All of their riffs except the ones they stole from better bands (ie big main rhythm riffs from title tracks of commercially successful albums like Graves of the Archangels) are so boring you will find yourself pulling the dingle berries from your ass hair instead of paying attention. These boring riffs are combined with the stolen riffs into ten minute long, verse chorus verse riff salads with lame solos so butt rock you wonder how a porno with this much anal sex in it and so many different penises and mixed body fluids in just one hole of one woman doesn’t count as at least somewhat homosexual. Listening to Black Wisdom is the same as taking a pair of chopsticks into the public restroom of movie theater to eat undigested peanuts, popcorn kernels, and gummy bears picked out from the floating turds in clogged toilets.
