This is the worst album in the world of metal, but I cannot despise it as the lyrics are just so comical:









I mean honestly, a child would struggle to write lyrics that are worse than the ones above!

Ignore the other review on here, basically this is the same as every other hardcore band out there at the moment and is basically yet another Hatebreed rip off. although there are a few decent riffs, they are all stolen from Slayer, and again Hatebreed. Absolutely nothing original and a total waste of space.

So take my advice and never ever buy this album, just check out their myspace page and listen to "We Hate" for the aforementioned lyrics and the pure comedy value.

Having listened to endless (~90 bands) F-ing garbage in search of some new metal this album GODDAMN ROCKS THE BALLS OF SATAN HIMSELF. 90% of metal these days seems to be quality guitar/drumming with truly awful growling/screaming over the top - never fear, The Sworn Enemy Riffmeisters are here to save us all!! Guitar - pounding, melodic with an aggressive edge, upbeat, breakdowns, no showboat solos, got it all. Raise ur glass to the front man for beauty lyrics and screaming/growling when needed but not 100%. These boys have taken the best of hatebreed, metallica, bolt thrower, agnostic front, biohazard, chimaira, slayer, terror and mashed it all into 1 brutal, must have soon to be classic ball breaker record. Ahhhhhhh!

LISTEN UP KIDS! 3 Feb. 2006
By wally gator - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was driving home about a week ago and I heard this song SCARED OF THE UNKNOWN on a late night hardcore show. I was blown away by it! This is some good, nasty, stuff. Heavy duty skiz if you know what I'm saying. NOW LISTEN! I'm not your typical growl em up hardcore fan either. I'm very picky, and usually I tend to dig on much more rock and roll type material, but I do know solid stuff when I hear it. I went out and purchased this thing, and have now found a very fine CD to pump my fists and kill to. These guys have a raw sound, but they play nice and tight and the vocals are very crisp, for a growl. I have been truckin this around on my discman for days, and haven't seen the tracklist since.. but I'm REALLY diggin' this. REALLY! Check it out if you 're in the mood for something with nuts.

A GREAT CD!! 31 Jan. 2006
By brian d - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i have been a big fan of sworn enemy for a long time know and this is by far their best stuff yet. if you are expecting a straight hardcore album you'll be a little dissapointed since it has alot of slayeresque moments but mixed with enough hardcore to remain true to where they came from. the production on this is very crisp,and the mix is loud and nasty!!good metal parts,great breakdowns and parts that you can punch your friends to your little hearts content to. a great cd, good job guys!!!if you like any other sworn enemy stuff get it now!!!

A great young band worth checking out 25 Jan. 2006
By A. Stutheit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In principle, Sworn Enemy should sound almost exactly like a band like Bleeding Through. They both play hardcore influenced thrash, and they both became a lot more famous due to the popularity resurgence of heavy metal in recent years. But Sworn Enemy stand out from other bands (like Bleeding Through) for two reasons: a) Sal Lococo's vocals are quite high pitched, and (more importantly) Sworn Enemy prove that they can riff better than most of the rest. Indeed, the band clearly spent some time around Slayer while making this album (they actually toured with them), because most of the sharp and ultra hot riffs evoke Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman circa 2001 (the "God Hates Us All" era). Add some persistent, energetic drumming, and even a couple of guitar solos, and you have an album which is very aggressive and is typically (especially in track six, "Absorb the Lies") catchy. The awesome sounding album opener points "The Beginning of The End" in a promising direction, with fiery guitars over a heavy drum beat. Other highlights include "Scared of the Unknown" and "All I Have," which have pounding, churning power chords and fast double bass work, the very Slayer-esque "After The Fall," and the explosive, blistering barrage of super fast, almost buzzsaw riffs on the fourth track, "Save Your Breath." "The Beginning of The End" doesn't have any classic songs, and a couple tracks around the middle sort of blend in with each other. But all in all, this quite an impressive album which makes for a great listen and makes Sworn Enemy worthy of opening for bands like Slayer and Slipknot in concert. Recommended to all fans of metalcore and modern thrash.

BAD AZZ!!! 17 Mar. 2006
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great album! Every song on here is just straight up brutal hardcore with a metal influence. I had heard of sworn enemy but never heard them. Glad I picked this up. If you want something to play loud and bang your head this is it!!!

Why, yes, we do hate your music... 11 April 2006
By Michael Wolfe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
...because D.R.I. did it back in 1987. And they did it better (although with thinner production). To hear a band ranting about other bands ripping off a scene that they love, when they are in fact merely off the same scene is pretty damn sad.
"What I really hate is music like yours, makes me wanna smash your head through a door..." - Who's music? We don't know, but I'm guessing that it's the music of all of the "fake" hardcore bands out there. Doesn't really matter because it's kind of a [...]lyric, anyway.
Sworn Enemy try to combine the ferocity of metal with the passion of hardcore. The problem is that they are missing both the passion and the ferocity. They are loud, though.
