Error Error

This self-titled EP is the debut from Error. Toting themselves as an "electro-hardcore-punk” band, the story goes that the quartet formed after Atticus and Leopold Ross’ frustration towards modern aggressive music boiled into their artistic efforts. The Ross brothers teamed with Bad Religion/Epitaph founder Brett Gurewitz and Greg Puciato of Dillinger Escape Plan in order to channel their hostilities towards Error. According to their press release, Error’s intentions were to create something "new and exciting.” Their finished product however lacks originality. Error’s sound is not unlike many harsh electronic/industrial bands today. Still, what Error lacks in uniqueness is made up for with their energy. They have a tight sound, and are at times ferocious — "Jack the Ripper” and "Brains Out” stand out as the band’s most abrasive and polished songs. Error’s respectful attempt at covering 999's "Homicide” is also noteworthy. Despite Gurewitz’s involvement, this album won’t appeal to most Bad Religion fans and is more geared towards lovers of heavy industrial beats. If you’re looking for something aggressive and spirited, then Error is a great place to start. (Epitaph)
