Emmure: The Respect Issue

Emmure are back with their latest offering of brutal death-core, titled The Respect Issue, easily as heavy and savage as their previous effort Goodbye to the Gallows. As if they are petitioning to be the heaviest act on the Victory Records roster, Emmure go for the juggular on this brief (29 minute!) platter of non-stop violence and sweat soaked insanity. While the occasional gang-styled vocals don't always work ("False Love In Real Life") for the most part what you get are deep, throaty growls, grunts, & screams, backed up by scorching riff-o-rama, crushing breakdowns, and pounding drum work. In fact, some of these songs are like one long breakdown, as the band builds upon restrained chaos before all hell breaks loose. Their stab at more melodic fare, "Chicago's Finest", shows some promise, but in the end it's stuff like "Rough Justice" and "You're More Like Friend Without The 'R' " that is what makes this band-pure, unadulterated brutality. Emmure are not the most original act out there, but what they do they do well.
