ZELORAGE - So You're A Mess - CD - Inverse Records - 2013

The Finnish label Inverse Records is sometimes over-enthusiastic. Otherwise, we don't know what this shit is all about. We don't necessarily refer to the style of music that does not appeal to us (not now, not in a million years), but it seems every aspect of this miserable album is half-baked. From the vocals (half-metalcore and half mellow nu metal soft singing) to the music (can you be more cliche?!) - this recording seems powerless and weak, on every level.

Misogynistic lyrics and mock-harsh vocals try to conceal the band's lack of genuine musical material, and the fact it's all delivered with virtually zero dynamics and energy makes this charade much worse. Lightweight and insignificant, this metalcore/nu-metal bullshit of an album has got nothing to write home about. Avoid. (1/10)
