WHAT LIES BENEATH? EXACTLY WHAT YOU’D EXPECT!
So I don’t think this exactly news as I’m assuming that someone who isn’t me already knew this, but reader Cody Barrick has just tipped us off that our favorite YouTube vocal coverist (I know, I made up a word, eat me), Senor “Deathcore is Not Scene” Bivins, has his own band – What Lies Beneath. Yes, they named themselves after a Michelle Pfeiffer movie. But at least it’s a Michelle Pfeiffer movie with (SPOILER ALERT!) ghosts and a murderous Harrison Ford, and not, say, a Meryl Streep movie about how hard it is to make it in the fashion world. Also, a blog posting from earlier this month promises that they will soon have a new band name – I’d like to suggest they go with I Could Never Be Your Woman. Just sayin’.
But while I can (sort of) defend the band name, I can’t really defend the music. WLB play exactly what you’d expect a band featuring Mr. Bivins would play – namely, terrible, generic, totally scene deathcore.
Personally, I think your time would be better spent listening to two old Jews make love – at least that would be hilarious – but if you’re really hard for entertainment, you can check out the band here. Much to my chagrin, there isn’t a lot of overt stupidity on their MySpace to make fun of – except, of course, for the way the write those aforementioned blogs. To wit:
New name coming.
New music approaching.
So I guess we won’t be offering these dudes a guest column anytime soon.
