Album Review

On the second album by Connecticut metalcore outfit Emmure, singer Frank Palmeri shifts back and forth between a standard-issue death growl and a more melodic clean vocal style, on ten songs that tend to stick to the same template of stuttering unison riffs and blastbeats. Still, there are moments of power and release to be found on The Respect Issue, including the hard-rocking "I'm so over it" refrain on "Tales from the Burg."

Customer Reviews

Good Album

I can't believe no one has left any comments. Good album. I got addicted to Emmure recently and just realized their talent. I wish i would have caught on sooner. Great band.

Guilty pleasure.

While offering little in the way of dynamics, originality, or cool instrumentation, Emmure scratch a lot of the same cathartic itches as the more dumbed-down nu metal, and probably with better musicianship. while Emmure have none of the originality that made old-school death metal so exciting, and truth be told aren't even really at the highest end of deathcore (read: Veil of Maya, Born of Osiris, Job For a Cowboy (when they were deathcore), Oceano, or Suicide Silence) they have a certain low-brow appeal. Not the greatest album deathcore has ever seen, but if you want bro-down, after slowdown, after throwdown, after breakdown in a manner that is neither oppressively heavy nor overly cerebral, this will do just fine.

Emmure > sex

This is one of their most defining albums. Its outstanding.
