I have a theory about this album. I believe that Stars Are Falling put an impressive amount of time and effort into researching the trends of the current metalcore scene to compose a complete list of the most annoying and overused musical elements that are causing great discomfort to music fans everywhere.Once this list was developed, they sat down and meticulously planned out their full-length, The Consequence of Revenge, to make sure they included each and every one of those elements. Bury Your Dead type moshcore moments Check. An excessive amount of gang vocals You betcha. Horribly irritating clean singing Obviously. Extremely clichéd lyrics Of course. The list could go on for days.

It's almost depressing to sit down and listen to this disc from start to finish because of the incredibly high number of cringe inducing moments. Breakdowns with lyrics like "I'll tell you this one thousand times / My one and only" or "I said I loved you / Always and forever" are simply painful to endure. The extremely predictable songwriting style becomes tiresome after only a few tracks. The clean singing is annoying each and every time it makes an appearance.But then again, what else is there to expect from a album with a cover displaying a gun resting on top of a Bible with a drink in the background

On a positive note, the execution of these clichéd metalcore moments is proficient, but that's basically the equivalent of being the smartest kid in a remedial math class. Sure, your mom's going to be proud of you, but everyone else somehow managed to nail down fractions before they made it to the 8th grade.

Bottom Line: If you're a listener that wants an album packed with excessive amounts of cheesy, tiresome metalcore trends, then The Consequence of Revenge is for you. If not, you're just wasting your time.
