Aw yes, the album review: A 300-500 word write-up explaining all the eccentricities pretentious wordsmiths love and hate about a band’s new album. While most reviews tend to hover the line between a positive and negative analysis, we’ve found that some seem to deviate from the pack choosing to spend their time putting an artist down for months of hard work.
We, on the other hand, would rather give the power back to the artist by letting them take a stab at reviewing (or simply explaining) their new music. And in order to make that process as easy (and fun) as possible, we’ve decided to give the artists one word and one word only to describe each song off their new release – thus creating the one word album review.
Featured on today’s OWAR (One Word Album Review; come on, keep up) is Motionless In White’s flawless and face-melting release, Graveyard Shift. Weighing in at twelve industrial-charged tracks, Motionless In White’s Roadrunner Records debut is as heavy as they come. Pretty much, for anybody concerned the band’s label change might have influenced a newer, “softer” approach, be prepared for a swift kamikaze kick to the head lead by tracks like “Rats” and “Soft.”
Now, before we turn this too much into our own review, we’re going to pass things over to frontman Chris Motionless as he carefully chose twelve words to describe each of his band’s new tracks. After reading what the softspoken voclaist had to say about Graveyard Shift, be sure to pick up a copy here before it hits stores this Friday..
