5 Billion Dead. Great name for a band, but do they live up to it? No. The EP starts off with a bizarre almost Voivodian hum to it but then it degrades into total by the numbers nu-metal. The vocals alternate between really weak clean singing and tough guy growling. In all honesty they sound like Korn. I mean a lot like Korn, from the vocals to the constant bass overpowering the rest of the music, in all of its chug-ch-chunk glory. This is one of the more predictable things I've heard in awhile, which is annoying on so many levels. I'm not going to ravage this record. In fact I can't really think of much of anything to say about it other than it really sounds like Korn. Not a trace of originality anywhere to be found on it. Just a lot of tough guy BS and JUMP-DA-FUCK-UP! Not worth my time. I knew what was coming before they even played it after a minute of the first song. That's just sad.

They did provide some live video footage on here but it wasn't agreeing with my computer so I couldn't watch it to say if they acquit themselves a bit better live.
