11:53 - Overrwatcher If it is consensual and the face-in-crotch woman agreed to it, cool. Otherwise, not cool. I don't trust comments with no accounts, I could have claimed to be her and nobody would know the difference.
11:15 - M C Vice Some of the comments seem to be implying the audience groping was part of the act.
10:40 - Overrwatcher You're entering a BLACK METAL concert. It's not going to be a joy ride. She should have just left if she was unhappy about the blood. I'm PC as fuck but the entire world isn't a safe space.
10:36 - Overrwatcher About that article: The actual theatrics sounded cool, the face-in-crotch is what the fuck and completely uncalled for. Blood is metal as fuck. Sexual assault not so much.
09:34 - ScreamingSteelUS I thought of that, too. The answer is no, because getting offended is stupid, but you're welcome to scoff at the ignorance with me.
09:05 - M C Vice Should I be offended that the woman who wrote that article associates the eagle emblem most Germanic states have used since the Roman Empire with nazis?
Writing a review for August Burns Red is a bit of a challenge. It's not so much that their sound is difficult to describe. Rather, the group's extremely consistent output of technically-inclined metalcore lends itself to redundancy from reviewing one album to the next. But while it may not be the band's best album (an accolade I award to Constellations), Rescue And Restore is definitely their most melodic and different.
I've been a fan ever since I first heard the greatness of Constellations, and then picked up Messengers. Leveler was just alright for me, but I'm looking forward to hearing this record, I'm sure it will be great.
It is rare for a straight-up metalcore album to be good these days. August Burns Red is really the last of these groups I think can still bring it (now that As I Lay Dying is dead). This is their most melodic album yet, too.
