Ice Nine Kills – The Silver Scream | album review

ink-tss

Ice Nine Kills is a band that has flown under many people’s radar for over a decade now. A band known by name, but never receiving recognition they really deserves. They’ve always been doing things their own way, putting  themselves on the map with their last release, Every Trick In The Book, which was a huge hit in the scene of heavy music.

October 5th, 2018, marked a new era for the band. The latest album from the band, The Silver Scream, is something unlike many people have heard. Every song is based off a popular horror film, everything from Halloween to The Crow. Ice Nine Kills didn’t hold anything back on this album.

The first two singles, The American Nightmare (A Nightmare On Elm Street) and Thank God It’s Friday (Friday The 13th) let fans know that they weren’t going soft anytime soon. A catchy chorus mixed with heavier verses, and a breakdown everyone could love, people knew to catch Ice Nine Kills on Warped Tour 2018, and to keep an eye on the band until October.

I’ve listened to the entire album, and now I can’t stop myself from listening. Lighter tracks, like Love Bites (An American Werewolf In London) and A Grave Mistake (The Crow) offer incredible songwriting and gorgeous singing. On the opposite end of that spectrum, songs like Stabbing In The Dark (Halloween), Merry Axe-Mas (Silent Night, Deadly Night) and Rocking The Boat (Jaws) hit hard with fun guitar riffs, energetic drumming, and some unclean vocals we’ve rarely seen from Charnas. The references to classic lines from the movies give every song its own little flare of nostalgia.  Many songs come completely out of left field, It Is The End (It) sticking out to me the most. Creepy voice acting, leading into chaotic and heavy verses, the song features ska punk band, Less Than Jake, offering some backing tracks to elevate the heavy guitars to a new level. The song makes you wanna move in any way you can.

The album shows tons of growth from the small metal band. Their ability to create and not take themselves 100% serious is obvious. The use voice acting, other genres, wordplay, and fun movie references, The Silver Scream gives you the creeps in the best way. Nostalgia and love for horror films makes my love for this album so much more personal. Ice Nine Kills has come a very long way, I have a feeling they can only go up from here.

BoyMeetsWorld Deput Full Length Album “Become Someone” review

BoyMeetsWorld, a five-piece has been on the fast track forming in the summer of 2012. They have previously released their debut EP entitled, “Do What’s Best For You,” their Christmas Album entitled, “Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal”, and now their debut full length “Become Someone” June 16th, 2015 right before starting their summer of performances on Vans Warped Tour. “Become Someone” has a total of twelve tracks, number twelve being the bonus acoustic track.  In my opinion, the songs touch upon the situations, and or problems in a teen through young adult’s life. Those things being love, friendship, adventure and finding out the person you are meant to be. Track 2, “So In What?” not only has amazing riffs, it’s the perfect song to listen to if you’re in need of learning how to cope with a relationship ending.  Track 5, “Best You’ve Ever Had” is lyrically one of my favorites off of this album.  As for what I believe will be most impacting and meaningful, that would be Track 11, “Become Someone”. I highly suggest picking it up. Also, if Vans Warped Tour has not rolled through your town just yet, be sure to check set times and catch their set. – Christine
