All the the tracks on Reincarnate are great, the only reason they’re getting hate is because fans are confused, MIW doesn’t create albums as a whole anymore, Their new albums have many genre’s within them, metal-core, industrial, industrial-metal, nu-metal and more, which i’m fine with because i enjoy all of those. They’re trying to make albums EVERYONE will enjoy, and i think they nailed it on this one.
The thing that bugs me though is on every song there’s always some douche that says “sounds like *Insert Band Name here*” how about they just sound like MIW. Yes music will always sound similar, that’s how music is created, taking your influences and making something that’s your own. you don’t think Combichrist was influenced by KMFDM? or Manson influenced by NIN? how about Metallica being influenced by Sabbath. It’s all there folks, you can hear it, and that’s just the genesis of music.
I just finished listening to MIW’s new album, it has some incredible tracks my favorites being “Dark Passenger” and “Everybody Sells Cocaine”. I’m glad they decided to take more of an Industrial approach this time around.
I can’t wait until they come back to Toronto!
