for starters, i'm glad you referenced "coal chamber" in this review, as it gives the reader a clear perspective of your taste in music. personally, i would liken nate's lyrics to that of KoRn, or possibly Limp Bizkit, but only because i hate him and wish his band the worst. conjuring up some relatively obscure long lost rap-rock band (which is absolutely ludicrous; Dez Fafara is a much better lyricist than Nate Sizemore) simply sharpens the dart. clearly you have studied the worst of the worst, and this e.p. must represent some part of that. cheap pot, a sprite can, and your favorite burned c.d., featuring evanescence and story of the year. this is what i think of when i read this review.
as a close and personal friend to the singer, i can only say one thing: you give him too much credit. he rips off every singer he's ever heard, from morrissey to danzig and back again. but if you are going to shit on him, please do it with intelligent, insightful commentary. this review is lazy, poorly written and you clearly did not bother to research the band, or their influences. i expect more from such a prestigious (named) website.
