Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hate Culture (Audio CD)
If you are buying this because you are into Aiden (William's main band) you are not going to know what's hit you. What you are in store for is so much more emotionally mature and musically vast than anything he has done before. I am not a fan of Aiden, I am too old for all that! But I saw the video for Beautiful loser and reaised I was watching something great. Gothic, electric and dark dark dark. I bought the album on the strength of that one song and wasn't dissapointed. What you get here is something closer to Marilyn Manson than anything 'emo'. William is a character you love despite his doom laden lyrics which remind me a little of Alkaline Trio or more closely Heavens. But this music would sound great in a vampire's nightclub where Absynthe and cigartettes are plentiful. Its electric like the Faint, goth like Manson and catchy like Trio, but it is also very unique. William wants you to hate him, so he says in track one, a spoken prolugue, but you are more likely to fall for his darkly charms.
