Review - Full Scream Ahead - We Write Our Own Anthems

Full Scream Ahead - We Write Our Own Anthems

View The Review

2 out of 10

This EP was recorded at somewhere called 'Anemic Studios'. That's all you need to know, really.
'Their hope is to save the world from the manufactured dross that assaults the airwaves daily.' 'This is the sound of the future. . .' big claims from what is the sound of some children remixing Robbie Williams' last solo album, with everything set to 'feeble'. The singer certainly sounds earnest enough, so if you're fourteen, surfing the hormonal wave and suffering your first dump (of the romantic variety) Full Scream Ahead may very well capture your innocent heart - for a few weeks, at least.

Personally, the band reminds me of nothing more than the other kind of dump. Or, as the Australians say, they make me want to 'murder a brown snake.' Turgid, plodding riffs n' rhythms. Drumming from a very expensive set of biscuit tins. Support slots with Attack! Attack! You get the idea, I hope you are, even now, frantically trying to forget you ever heard the name.
