1 stars Just because a band is unique doesn't automatically make it good, also, isn't trying to put programmed drums, clean singing, and keyboard playing in metal already done before, especially by The Devil Wears Prada (not that they're worth a listen to)? Well, I'll give it something for the great clean vocals but none of this sounds like there's is hardly any creativity in this mess

Bands that tend to be labeled "Avant Garde" manage to play a lot of styles and put them together very impressively and flow well together. Arcturus has an operatic theme to their music, Sigh has it also combined with black metal, but IWABO only listened to Dillinger Escape Plan and decided to try to be weird just to get that label into their band. Even Sigh's vocalist claims that they didn't intend to make themselves weird, they believed that playing multiple styles of music on certain occasions fitting to the moods they are trying to express.

Also, the riffs are really nothing different from the typical deathcore I've heard and if you take away the programming, experimentation, and the keyboardist, that's exactly what they would be, except with above average vocals. There's just nothing else interesting about what they are playing to me and I could find much better listening to the keyboardist of Arcturus playing one song entirely classical than six people playing dubstep, metal, funk, electronic, and jazz with little to no knowledge of them.

1.5/10
