Album Review

If you were to make a Venn diagram of metalcore and mainstream pop, at the point where they meet would sit Issues, a metalcore band merging the two disparate worlds together to create a sort of "new nu-metal." Mixing R&B's rhythmic sensibility with crushing breakdowns, songs like "Mad at Myself" feel like a mosh pit broke out in the middle of an R. Kelly jam. A combination like this can be a little hard to wrap your head around, but a few tracks into their self-titled album, the listener is immersed enough in their crazy experiment that things start to make sense (at least as much sense as they're likely to). While hearing metal with record scratching is likely to cause flashbacks for veterans of the '90s nu-metal explosion, Issues put enough of their own spin on things to feel like something new, which feels like a praiseworthy accomplishment in an increasingly homogenous genre.

Customer Reviews


If the rest of the album is anything like "Stingray Affliction", the album is definitely a step in a different direction for Issues, but admittedly a good one. Black Diamonds was my EP of 2012, and this will more than not be the album of the first quarter of 2014. Great work, and amazing lyrics.


Though being a departure from the sound collaborated by ISSUES in 2012 on their EP Black Diamonds, there is no denying the heart and soul of each member has been poured into every song on their debut full-length. Despite its reception by some fans as being “less heavy”, ISSUES have successfully fused notable styles of music, including Metalcore, Hardcore, RNB and Nu Metal. This album is worth a listen if you are looking for a diverse collection of songs rather than the same style through and through, while the core elements of what is ISSUES’ sound is kept throughout the full-length consistently.

Simply amazing
