Review by Austrian metal mag "Stormbringer"

NAME, which also stands for "New Approach to Martyrs Expressions" make their name with this album credit. The California Chaos-core trio delivers a concoction onto a high standard. Whoever here thinks this is another frequently reported, unspectacular Mathcore group, that is totally wrong.

NAME are very chaotic, very varied and catchy. Sometimes they recall bands such as War From A Harlots Mouth and The Dillinger Escape Plan, but have their own distinctive, sophisticated style. "Internet Killed The Audio Star" has become an experimental album that offers both harmonious and disharmonious parts and sent these alternates.

Besides jazzy parts and blues components, there are, on one side, very quiet songs like tracks "Empathic Communicator: Part III and IV" that are reminiscent at times very strong in the post-hardcore, and brutal, energetic tracks like the opener "Killer Whales, Man''. Even the subsequent song "My Sweetheart, The Whore" is provided with a lot of energy and bustle. Overall, the 13 tracks are mostly quite long, so the album has a running time of almost 78 minutes. Overall, it is to say that this album offers much more variety and would thus provide longer lasting listening pleasure. It is certainly not something for everyone, but there are certainly many are found who like the album.

Rating: 4.0 of 5.0
