Evergreen Terrace - Burned Alive by Time

Posted on Saturday, February 26, 2011

Let me explain briefly how the Christian Metalcore bands operate. They steal (I distinctly remember the 10 Commandments prohibiting this behavior) all the best ideas from the secular bands that are doing well at the time. Yet somehow, this plagiarism is given validity by their oh-so unique beliefs and moral values. Now of course I’m being an asshole, so I should point out there are always exceptions (Hopesfall, 7 Angels 7 Plagues, Zao, etc.), and in Evergreen’s defense the lyrics are not afflicted by self-righteous propaganda outright, but perhaps I sense them subliminally? When it comes down to it, I can’t honestly say (see, atheists have values) that this is a bad album, but I’d be lying (godammit, another sin) if I didn’t acknowledge that much of what I hear has been heavily borrowed.
