Confession “The Long Way Home” Video Drops And Puts Us To Sleep

If this is your sort of thing, aversive metalcore, then the new Confession is for you. The band recently launched its latest video, “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.

Rock Hard!
