Your Demise Ignorance Never Dies

Your Demise Ignorance Never Dies
Featuring earnest explanations of the already fairly direct lyrical content in the album sleeve, Your Demise come across as engaging based on passion and energy alone, although they rely a bit too much on reinterpreting other bands' riffs to outrun some of the genre's more established acts. They play a mosh-y yet fairly straightforward brand of metalcore somewhere between Comeback Kid's up-tempo, compulsively anthemic approach and the stylized beat down of early Bury Your Dead. Oh, and they do dub-step and jungle as well. While I appreciate the attempt at diversification, Your Demise aren't Candiria and are not at a point with their songwriting where experimentation this unfocused and randomly placed will do anything but clutter the album unnecessarily. Regardless, Ignorance Never Dies is a solid sophomore effort that has the potential to break the group to a much wider audience. Here's hoping they'll trim the fat for their next release though.
