The biosheet that comes with Today Forever’s second album promises me melodic hardcore that will appeal to both fans of both Comeback Kid and Snapcase. On top of that, these guys that call Kassel, Germany home venture well beyond the worn hardcore trails and faceless emo-rock uniformity. Has to be good, right?
Apparently this biosheet came with the wrong CD because what I heard was just another run-of-the-mill metalcore album. Granted, these guys aren’t all bad but the melodic parts they feel like inserting in every song feel forced and stale. Today Forever likes to keep their songs short, which is a good thing but it doesn’t do much to keep things fresh as I’ve heard this kinda stuff countless times before and when yet another breakdown crashes over me before leading into yet another catchy chorus, you can count me out.
