Blunt Force Volume Electro, Industrial We Got This Far You ever get that sinking feeling something isn't quite right? Something just seems to roll against your eardrums like an old sonnet of a past memory and you can't quite put your finger on it? Than you realise what it is and you start remembering the walk of shame you did the next morning. Yeah, welcome to We Got This Far. Reminiscent of NIN days and thrash cord mixings of Bile, this is that kick to the proverbial balls everyone fears yet secretly embraces. Blunt Force Volume really took a whack at the old vinyls and decided to open up a few old wounds that feels good in a really wrong way. The sound is top notch and the production quality is worthy of anyone's radar. The problem is that they ripped every shred of anything that could have been truly unique and turned it into a pile of manure that is unbelievably wrong. Suffice it to say folks, what they did was make a guilty pleasure that actually makes the listener feel guilty for enjoying what they are hearing. It pays wonderful amage to days of old in the Industrial genre but lacks anything that would put a new spin on it. Dreadfully depressing at times not for the lyrics but for the main stake of how they completely disregard any respect to some of the great pioneers of the genre. All in all, as much as I would love to give them the thumbs up, I can not abide by such blatant thievery of talent and than to call it ones own. I give this piece of absolute fools gold a 3. 2
