Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
Bland hardcore is bland hardcore. Like I said with the Saving Grace review, some bands stick, some don’t. Onward to Olympas is an example of a band that doesn’t stick. It’s pretty standard, Metalcore 101.
This World is Not My Home really falls on me as a run of the mill christian metal album. There’s nothing that sticks out. Heavy screamed verses, a melodic, sung chorus. It’s the bread and butter of a genre I’ve torched on this blog before.
It’s not a horrific album, it’s just tiresome. Onward to Olympas aren’t bringing anything to the table that isn’t already there.
