From First To Last - Heroin

After hearing "Chrismassacre", the band's contribution to the "Taste of Christmas" compilation last year, I checked out the band's major label debut, "Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has A Body Count", and was utterly dissapointed as the band sounding just like any other screamo band as opposed to the brutal assault that was Chrismassacre.
Fast forward to now and I read that the band changed their sound and added more black metal and industrial influences. So I gave them a second chance and checked out their lates offering, Heroin. Now while the band upped the ante on this latest offering with a heavier and faster sound, there still really isn't anything special on hand here. They still sound like an angsty emo band and the so called black metal influence is barely noticeable. The best they come up with is sounding like an Iron Maiden tribute band. Hopefully the band can still improve since they are still a young band. But pass on this one for now.
