Survive This!


The Life You’ve Chosen
Epitaph Records 

We all make mistakes. It’s all part of learning and growing. The Life You’ve Chosen is one huge mistake, and if Survive This! want to survive as a band, they’re going to need to forget this LP and start fresh.
Their first poor decision was becoming the protégé band of Falling In Reverse singer, Ronnie Radke, who hasn’t done anything positive for the music industry since his departure from Escape The Fate in 2008. Radke’s influence as a producer of the album is evident through its predictable rhythms, unimaginative riffs and inexcusable themes.

The final nail-in-the-coffin is Pardon Me, which features lyrics that promote violence against women such as, ‘Just wait ‘til I get my hands on you. Bleed bitch bleed’. As musicians you have a social influence and impact – there is no place for this filth in the music industry and Survive This! should be ashamed. Start fresh or stop trying.

    This record may be terrible- I haven’t heard it, nor am I going to listen to it. However, I do not believe that it is any reviewer’s place to take a moral stand against a band/singers lyrics, no matter the subject. Of course violence against women is abhorrent, I completely agree with that, but a band/artist/lyricist has no responsibility to anyone. Thats the whole point.

    What of cannibal corpse(‘Necropedophile’, ‘Entrails ripped from a vrigins c**t’)? What of Eminem (‘My d!&k is so big if I add another inch to it, you would swear when I r@ped you that you was actually into it’)? The lyric in question pales in comparison.

    I am not trying to start an argument for the sake of it, the rest of the review gave me a good idea of what the record in question is like.

    But in saying this, YOU also have the right to write whatever YOU want to write. So, we have come full circle…this is just what I think.

    correspondence welcomed,
