The oh-so-reliable track “Planet Shit” is a piece filled with powerful lyrics. The words “Whose fucking side are you on? / Which side are you on? / When all the lines that have been drawn / are swept up in blood” show the group questioning the audience about their stance on what is happening in our society and judging by the short passage. The words show how upset the group is at the violence that endlessly surrounds our lives. âPlanet Shitâ is a well-written composition that explains how violence has changed the life of the group.
âPost-Boredomâ is a catchy and overwhelming song thanks to Micciche playing his heart on the bass guitar. From the start, the sound of heavy notes emerges from the background and welcomes people into the chaotic world of the group. The absolute best part is how the vibrations of Micciche’s bass guitar playing can be felt while shaking through the speakers. âPost-Boredomâ is a killer song in which Micciche shows off his talents as a musician.
The classic “Thing With Feathers” shows a harmonic side of the group by the slowness of the musical tempo.

The bleeding “Whip” is a classic example of the importance of the voice in metalcore. Buckley’s voice is superior to this tune in the way he passionately screams the lyrics. While listening, strong emotions of anger can be felt through Buckley’s bossy voice. In some ways, his vocal style is the center of attention due to the way he shouts the words, and the screams provide a glimpse into how Buckley is using his voice to wreak havoc on âThe Whipâ.
The flamboyant “sexsexsex” has addicting guitar playing from Buckley and Williams. Throughout the ensemble, static notes can be felt as both guitarists play, and the sound is able to shake the minds of those listening. Plus, the mix of harmonic and metallic riffs shows just how capable Buckley and Williams are at creating sizzling guitar chords on ‘sexsexsex’.
Dooming “We Go Together” ends the record with a boom of electrifying instrumentation. The way the guitar and drums collide creates an energetic vibe that will leave listeners eager to hear more.

Overall the band did a great job with “We Go Together” because of the power of the instrumentation and vocals.
