Escape the Fate
on 31 August 2011
Another great album from a highly critized band, this self-titled third album (second with current vocalist Craig Mabbitt after their first vocalist Ronnie Radke was imprisoned) Escape the fate return with more of what their fans expect and want. Fans have been long caught up in a war (ironically since ETF's last album was called This War Is Ours) over which vocalist is better, but the way I see it this mass argument is redundent. ETF have their singer, and previous singer Ronnie Radke has his new band, is ready to start anew and has a first album on the way. So hopefully now this savage internet battle will die down and people can learn to enjoy the music they like, whether its one, the other or both. Which leads me to the actual album.
It is fluent, well written, well performed and is a huge variety of different flavours. The Halo-inspired Guillotine series which has spanned three albums finally recieves its finale and it really packs the punch. Listening to all three parts together is just over ten minutes of awesome riffs, solo's, breakdowns, screams and vocals and instrumentals as a whole that displays how this band have grown. This entire album has proved ETF once again as a highly talented band who forgot their bumpy beginning long ago, and hopefully their fans, and enemies, now can too.
