All Else Failed - This Never Happened

One of PA's angriest band makes a triumphant return, smashing you in the face with 120 miles an hour of pure undeniable hatred, with a semi-emo sounding song thrown in the middle to throw you off.

I have been listening to this band since 1995 when they were going by another name, and had two singers. Since then they have gained notoriety for their wild stage show and amazing pummeling music that tends to defy musical borders.

Their last CD seemed to be steering away from the heavier side... but for the most part this cd is like getting hit in the face with a rusty shovel. The only song that doesn't sound like an AEF signature song is "Waterlogged", which is probably the only track soft enough to play on MTV2. The rest would have all the idiots that watch that channel running for the hills like long tailed cats in a room full of rocking chairs.

My favorite track on this release is probably "Kinetic", an amazing song that covers the whole spectrum of emotions, from anguish to anger to depression to taking that final breath before you pull that trigger.

This is a great release, and I would suggest you get it now before your local CD store sells out.
