Vein.fm – This World Is Going to Ruin You (Review)

Vein.fm - This World Is Going to Ruin YouThis is the second album from Vein.fm, a metal band from the US.

Vein.fm are clearly a band with a lot of influences, and across the 32 minutes of material on This World Is Going to Ruin You, they wield these influences like weapons. Flourishing elements of hardcore, mathcore, metalcore, industrial, and nu-metal into a wild metallic ride, Vein.fm have created a formidable album here.

Within the chaos there are moments of atmosphere and emotive delivery too, which simply add to the band’s arsenal. This is particularly true of the last two tracks, which are the longest and most mood-based on the album, ending the band’s carnage in introspective horror.

The bulk of the delivery is frenetic and harshly varied. The band play heavy music with modern flair and no small amount of skill. Well, I say modern; while it certainly has a modern veneer, I can hear lots of parts here that remind me of the vibrant heavy sounds that drew me so strongly to the Trustkill Records and Ferret Music rosters of the early 00s. This is combined with some of the more more contemporary aspects of modern heavy music to produce a richly aggressive album that doesn’t stop hitting the mark.

So, as a rough description for what you’ll find here, take elements of bands such as Slipknot, Norma Jean, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Hopesfall, Loathe, A Static Lullaby, Fantômas, Scarlet, Zao, and A Life Once Lost. Stitch these together with furious abandon, and you’ll be on the right lines.

This World Is Going to Ruin You is an energetic blast of adrenaline. It’s a vicious treat, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Right, time to go listen to this at full volume once more and then flail around wildly.
