Ice Nine Kills - The Silver Scream (2018)

246 posts in this topic

Overall really enjoyed this album, great stuff coming out from this band. I think I enjoy this one more than ETITB. The Jig Is Up, Rocking the Boat, IT is the End, Merry Axe-Mas, A Grave Mistake, and The World In My Hands are highlights for me. I could do without Savages and Freak Flag just because they seemed very meh to me, at least compared to the high points on this album. I don't mind Love Bites really, but the production on it seemed off to me. But this album is an easy 8/10 for me, good shit.

Damn it, I was literally about to comment that lol.  I heard "the predator becomes the prey" and I thought hmmm interesting, they called back to that album... Few seconds late i hear "safe is just a shadow"...  I was waiting for the ETITB towards the end lol.

They mention ETITB about halfway in the song.

I only listened to the song once while washing the dishes, so I must have missed it the first time haha.

This entire album is masterpiece. Everything fits like a jigsaw piece which allows the flow to be uninterrupted. It's great when an album doesn't feel jarring. 

 

Spencer's vocals are fucking insane. He's got to be up there for vocalist of the year. The growls and highs he pulls off are beyond impressive. He's shaped up to be one of the best vocalist in the scene. 

 

Did anyone else get chills from the breakdown in Rocking the Boat? Amazing. 

 

Solid AOTY contender.

It b poo poo. At least compared to the rest of the album. Doesn’t make since cause Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the goriest most disgusting horrific movies of all time and THIS is what they chose to do with that. 

Actually, The original TCM has very little blood and gore. It was all suspense and pure horror as to why it is one of my favorite horror movies of all time. The chase scene that has nothing but Sally screaming her lungs out and Leatherface's chainsaw running scares the hell out of me to this day.

I don't know much about these guys but the  features of Tony from Mest and LTJ/Fenix TX are so randomly awesome

I’ve had one solid spin. It’s pretty great as expected. A lot of depth given it’s length.

 

I will say SAVAGES isn’t quite as bad as everyone is making it out to be . It’s kinda fun but is definitely a little boring. It’s got an anthem feel - so an upbeat, bouncy breakdown towards the end could have done a lot for the song.

 

I think Frak Flag is actually really groovy and a lot of fun. Again though, like SAVAGES they could have upped the energy for a bit towards the end.

 

The World In My Hands is probably the best of the lighter stuff along with A Grave Mistake. A lot of emotion in that one.

 

Love Bites is a nice little tune. I enjoyed how it was lyrically written.

 

Everything else is ridiculous (in a good way) and exactly what most everyone wanted to hear. 

 

A solid 9/10 for me. Well done.

Love the album. And INK straight up referencing REALLY OLD INK with the ska style horns on IT is the end. Probably my favorite album from them, doubtful on it being AOTY but definitely top 5.

all the talk of horror movie clips and Spencer doing an IT voice is really putting my expectations in check

 

I sorta hate horror movies, but these guys first ep and 'safe is just a shadow' are classics imo

 

I really hope they move past this shtick eventually since they make fantastic music.

I also caught a very ska feel from the chorus of that song. One of my favorites.

Holy fuck..... Like wow.... I've always liked this band. But this album.... Holy shit. So creative.... Just everything is perfect... From the mixing to the featured guests. Less than Jake and Fenix TX in the same track!? I blew my load right there! Aoty so far, no question.

What makes this even better is that the guest feature on the track is a previous band mate.
