FABER DRIVE SINGLEHANDEDLY FORGE AHEAD IN THE GENRE OF SUCK
Sometimes publicists just make it way too easy for us (that’s why we love them!). Any press release which favorably compares a band to Nickelback and Hinder pretty much dooms that band from the get-go. I mean really, it’s not even fair, kind of like locking a Pitbull in a room with a Poodle. Then there’s the picture at right… I mean, really, that’s how you want to portray your image to world? I challenge any of our readers to resist the urge to punch these dudes in the nuts. Finally, there’s this absolutely classic bit of ambiguously non-descriptive glory: “Faber Drive creates a stylistically undeniable brand of rock.” Um, WHAT? What does that even mean?
Now, we here at MetalSucks give everything a fair shot, so we clicked on the MySpace link in the email; sadly (or fortunately, as it were), that link pointed to a 20 year old Hispanic girl named Jenna. Hmmm, Faber Drive’s target audience?
Never to be deterred, we forged ahead and listen to an attached song clip of the Vancouver-based band’s music. All I have to say is that Vancouver may have some sick, sick weed, but good lord, maybe it’s time for the musicians there to put the bong away because Christ do their bands suck.
