Album Review

Michigan-based screamo band I Am Abomination seem a little less solipsistic than their peers on their full-length debut, To Our Forefathers. The first song is called "1776" and features marching drums and mournful, cinematic strings on the coda; similarly, track titles like "Thoughtcrime Is Death" and "The Deceiver" imply at least a rudimentary political consciousness, which puts them well ahead of bands that spend their time whining about the girls who done them wrong. Musically, though, they're just part of the herd; they pump out the same mixture of soaring guitar riffs and in-vogue-circa-2010 synths and Auto-Tuned vocals, with some metallic drumming in back, that a hundred other young bands have saturated the market with. The expected breakdowns and the occasional shredding guitar solo liven things up a little, bringing in an '80s metal vibe. Fans of bands like I See Stars and Blessed by a Broken Heart will find much to like on this album, but not much they haven't heard before.

Customer Reviews

itunes critic needs a new job

Who writes these reviews for Itunes? they act as if this is the only genre thats watered down. im sick of how they just rip on every band that comes out. pop, country, and every genre in music has the challenge to try to make music that hasnt been done before. honestly how is that possible when music has been around for centuries and now matter what you produce it's always going to sound similar to something you've heard before? I.E. lady gaga black eyed peas bruno mars justin bieber are all trash along with the rest of the crap that's out there. their not doing anything original what so ever but they act like freaks and are "good looking" so they get publicity and good reviews cuz otherwise the suits from the record companies come after the critics. seriously itunes- get a critic whos objective and knows what the hell they are talking about besides money and record sales. will smith and limp bizkit sold millions of records does that make them better than any of our bands or more creative? gimme a break. i havent even listened to this whole album but i would really like to give these critics a piece of my mind but this is the best i can do cuz they just hide behind their keyboards acting as if their musics greatest gift with no musical talent. if you dont like this music why are you reviewing it then? your all terds who need to be flushed down the toilet. get a new job. you prbly wont even post this because its "inappropiate" even though its the truth. if its not on the radio, i guess it's not good music.


the screamer is Dave Stephens from We Came As Romans

Such an inprovment!

The singing wow! Guitar shredding amazing! There is no band out there like I am abomination, what makes them different is that they have none of that screaming just singing, it's time for new bands of our generation to take different approaches in music and not follow the crowd and be some typical band that are in it to gloat about instead of the music. I am abomination will only rise keep rising and soon be big. Definitely one of my top favorite albums of 2010 so far! Since 1776, Greetings from Easter island are good catchy songs to check out
