Never Never

Never Never

NN = My Chemical Romance + Cathedral

The vocals of Never Never are the metal equivalent of screamo—one minute (or at least half of the record) is intimate-disturbing-melodic crooning, the next is guttural screams. It’s a catch-22 because during the quiet parts are the only times that you can understand the lyrics, which are well-thought out and not the least cliché. When the music is heavy and crunchy it could smash the head of Satan’s minions wide open so the guitarists could drink their rotten blood, but there’s just way too many touchy-feely picking patterns here for me
