Arsonists Get All the Girls - The Game of Life

Posted on Thursday, September 02, 2010

I’ve never seen a Metalcore band come off as so proud to be a “joke band,” as this West Coast sextet self-proclaim. Aside from the goofy band name and song titles, and perhaps the high-pitched half of the scream/growl vocal combo, there’s not much to joke about on The Game of Life. I personally prefer the band at their breakdown-ready best, but even the keyboard frenzy, schizophrenic style switches, and rabid time changes can’t stop me from enjoying the majority of this disc. Best cuts to burn for the mix: “Shoeshine for Neptune,” “Tourtasia,” “Claiming Middle Age a Decade Early,” and “Taiwanese Troft Trouble.”
