If this is your sort of thing, aversive metalcore, then the new Confession is for you. The band recently launched its latest , “The Long Way Home,” from the upcoming (November 8th) album of the same name.
As displeasing as it is to say, kind of like chewing on a ball of tinfoil when you have a mouthful of silver fillings, Confession is likely going to gain even more success in the hardcore/metalcore scene. Not that they’ve exactly paid their dues, but when you take a singer from a previously successful band(s) — Michael Crafter from I Killed the Prom Queen and Bury Your Dead in this case — and place him in a new band, odds are in the new band’s favor.
Now, I’m not a metalcore fan, especially when the band in question looks like a hodgepodge of different personalities. Case in point: Confession’s drummer (Shane O’Brien) looks like an emo fanboy, the bass player (Tim Anderson) looks like a thrasher metalhead, the singer (Michael Crafter) looks like a sexually frustrated jock — same goes for Dan Brown on guitars, and the other guitarist (Adam Harris) looks like another emo chick (sorry, dude, those skinny jeans are just too feminine). If that’s not a schizophrenic looking band, I don’t know what is.
Anyway, if you like metalcore, you’ll probably like Australian natives, Confession.
Oh, wait, there’s a video here to talk about. Budget was obviously a factor, because what we have is a band in a farm field rocking out. The farm field could even be a green screen. Confession do little more than bounce around and thrash about. “The Long Way Home” ranks as one of the most boring videos I’ve ever seen.
