DROWN MY DAY: GENERIC DEATHCORE FROM POLAND!
Suckalo “Wzh” sent us a very impassioned and articulate e-mail about Poland’s Drown My Day, who he called “some new breed of Polish death metal (or technical deathcore, progressive vegetarian grindcore or whatever – you know),” and described them as sounding “a a bit like Despised Icon, with a bit djenty Meshuggah style here and there.”
Well, with a pitch like that, how could I not check out the band?
Unfortunately, when I made my way over to DMD’s MySpace page, I almost immediately saw this picture of the singer wearing a straight-brim baseball cap and a Parkway Drive shirt:
And I know it’s wrong to judge a book by its cover, and maybe I could forgive the hat, or even the shirt, but the hat and the shirt? I think I can be excused for thinking, “If this band is good, then Kerry King is my grandmother.”
And Kerry King ain’t my grandmother.
So, yeah. This is pretty generic stuff. Still, Wzh’s e-mail made me laugh, so check out Drown My Day and make up your own mind.
