Attack Attack! - Sunday Came Sundenly
It seems like within this past year, it was the cool thing to incorporate techno like keys and autotune into your music. It was a "new cool" concept that struck the world. And while many bands tried to do it, none of them were able to pull it off that well. That was, until Attack Attack! burst onto the scene. Attack Attack! is the first band that, in my opinion, is able to pull off the electronic rock sound since Head Automatica. Attack Attack! signed to Rise Records and released their debut album, Someday Came Suddenly, in 2008.
The album is very catchy throughout the first listen and is a very good purchase. Someday Came Suddenly opens with the track Hot Grills and High Tops a rap track with a good beat to it. Bob your head or tap your feet, this track will get you moving in some way. The transition from the end of Hot Grills and High Tops into Stick Sticky will be the thing that makes you go back to the pervious track to make sure you heard things correctly. It continues the flow and will make you move even more. Stick Stickly is a great song, very well put together. The thing that catches you off guard is when the singing cuts in. You wouldn't really expect to hear it, but it's not out of place either. The vocals are extremely catchy, and the screams are brilliant. Stick Stickly sets the standard for the entire album. It demonstrates the skill of which Attack Attack! knows how to balance the techno aspect of their music with the hardcore/metal feel. Someday Came Suddenly keeps the same upbeat tempo that will make you want to constantly move. If this is your style of music, then your head wont stop moving.
Each and every track on Someday Came Suddenly deserves recognition, but the tracks that stand out the most to me. If you just don't have the money to buy the album but have some leftover credits on iTunes, these are the tracks I recommend for you. 'Stick Stickly', 'Bro, Ashley's Here', and 'The People's Elbow'. Three of the tracks that stand out the most to me while I listen to Someday Came Suddenly. Attack Attack! are six talented guys with loads of potential. They have big things in store for them in the future.

I was forced to listen to this debacle last night, and I can tell you it was one of my most painful experiences with music, EVER. I get it, they're supposed to be a joke, "doing it for the lulz" if you will, but joke music is not supposed to give you nightmares! Who knows, maybe they're awesome, and I'm just a 122 year old man who still gets his pop culture information through a transistor radio. Although, after a few songs you stop screaming at the stereo and just accept it for what it is. As one wise youtube commentator put it, "TECHNO IS THE SHIT SO? DONT DIS! these guys are sa sa sa sa sexy lol:) " RIGHT. 2009 everybody.

i agree with you about the new style that seems to have popped up. i cannot stand either one of those bands that you mentioned, but i love attack attack. they bring justice to the genre.

I'm not sure what to think of this new genre that has sprung up.. Part of me really digs it, but then another part just thinks it's kind of an odd combination, that being techno and screamo, screamtech? I might've just coined a new phrase. At any rate, this band does it better then some other's I would say. I can't stand Breathe Carolina and I Set My Friends On Fire is a bit much for me, this seems to be right in the middle.
