Immediately when the first song hits, you’ll get a feel for the tone of the rest of the album. Trance-core….deth-techno….dance-core….it’s crazy shit. The Browning are a band that said, “Hey you know those remixes that Big C does? Let’s just base our band on that mentality. Deathcore and techno music, it’ll work out so well!” Well, not really. Burn This World is fun and different at first, but the novelty wears off incredibly fast. The techno parts kick on at the worst times and it interrupts the songs quite a bit. The flow of the album is chopped up so much that it makes it seem long. Too long in fact and I lose interest after only a few songs in everytime. While the songs do have some heavy parts and some decent breakdowns here and there, it’s not enough to make up for the generic and boring deathcore/metalcore music behind the extacy infused rave.
Even though this album sounds like a download from Overclockedremix.com, there are some decent parts to it. The opening track is the best track, along with Bloodlust. Other than that all of the songs are relatively the same and it gets repetitive fast. Sometimes the eletronic elements calm the fuck down and produce a more ambient tone to a song instead of a glow stick orgy, which is a plus. However, this rarely happens on the album. I get lost at the constant dance/breakdown/dance/breakdown pattern Burn This World offers, there is no natural organic flow to the album. It feels way to gimmicky to take seriously.
A applaud these guys for trying something new and outside of the usual core thing. I liked them at first, however that wore off really fast for me.
Pros: Some decent breakdowns, vocals are well done
Cons: gimmicky techno-core is lol
