Chalk Nothing Left To Do But Die

From the title, it's a good guess that this is not a cuddlecore album. It is 37 minutes of intensity - pounding drums collide with industrial strength samples and aggressive guitars with intense vocals to top it off. The intensity of the vocals don't always mean in a shouting way, either and actually, the guitars aren't always aggressive. A few of the songs, like "Mothra" and "Let It Go," have a new wave bounce to them, but the vibe is much darker and distorted. For me their sound works best on "Shutdown," which sucks you into their dark world with a great woozy sampled refrain, then zaps you with a powerful drumming attack. (Dreary Me)
