Motionless In White
October 12, 2010
Remember the first time you ever heard Avenged Sevenfold? That really dark, eerie feeling you get in their songs? Well combine that with mind-splitting screams, amazing double-bass influenced drum beats, and heavy screams and you wind up with Creatures. Motionless In White is a hardcore/metal band from Pennsylvania signed with Fearless Records, and they sure know how to produce an album.
Let me be the first to say, it's relatively difficult to impress with me really hardcore music. I'm just not the biggest fan of it, but bands like We Came As Romans, Of Mice & Men, and Motionless In White are exceptions. It just takes a special something that the band produces for me to thoroughly enjoy hardcore music, but I can honestly say I enjoyed Creatures.
The first song that blew me away is one of their most popular from the new album and that's "We Only Come Out At Night". It starts out interestingly with a vampire like voice talking and then the great voices of Chris Cerulli and TJ Bell enter the scene. The other exceptionally noteworthy song is "Immaculate Misconception" which is a demonstration of how metal the band can really be. It combines deep screams, heavy riffs, and a dark keyboard sound.
Creatures just released yesterday, but now that you know about it, make sure to check it out! Fans of metal, hardcore, or a combination of the two should definitely add Motionless In White to their collection. You can check out part of their album on PureVolume here and follow them on twitter here . Feel free to post comments and make sure to pick up the album!
