CRITIC REVIEWS

Metal Injection

Vein.fm have raised the bar for any industrial hardcore that comes out in 2022.

90
Distorted Sound

With eight of the record’s 12 tracks clocking in under three minutes apiece, this isn’t an album that wastes any time in laying waste to everything around it.

Metal Hammer
Boston’s metalcore mutoids go on an exhilarating sonic rampage.

Blabbermouth.net

With VEIN.FM, it is very possible to listen to the same songs one hundred times and hear something new on each pass.

Kerrang!

Conceptually and musically, it’s a startlingly ambitious piece of work from a truly iconoclastic band.

Brick-walled by design, Errorzone 2.0’s frequencies bleed through one another into an unapologetic murk, the resultant weave of wires cementing the LP’s mangled, artificial aesthetic.

Pitchfork
The second album from the Boston hardcore group is a tentative push toward accessibility, exploding its sound in new directions while nodding to familiar touchstones.

Exclaim!

While not everything works out as intended, the seeds have been sown for growth and refinement. The album does a great job of acknowledging the band's past, and where one can expect them to move forward.

Spectrum Culture
The metalcore wheel remains un-reinvented, but when it’s this fun, you don’t really care.

The Needle Drop

Vein pulls out all the stops on This World, but to somewhat mixed results.

Vein’s Sophomore record “This World is Going to Ruin You” is a blood-smeared Obelisk, prevailing over the mass of meagre metal offerings that have been dragging the genre down for years.

Metalcore is a particular fusion of Metal and Punk that has been stagnating for many years; what was once exhilarating, infectiously intense and repentlessly savage became ground into flavourless ash that only produced the softest of crunches in the greater metal scene.

The band did exactly what I wanted them to do. They further refined the style they had on their debut, while somehow making it even denser than before. I've always been a huge Vein fan, so I'm fucking overjoyed that they kept up their momentum. Easily one of the best albums of the year so far, and will likely stay that way.

Metalcore has been reinventing itself over the past few years, and Vein.fm were one of the leading groups in this on their pretty good 2018 debut, Errorzone. I liked the way they combined electronics and some alternative metal with 2000s mathcore a la Botch or Converge, though I wished these influences were more prominent though. An issue I thought would be solved by a second album, but no, in fact most of what made Vein slightly unique before is now gone. A lot of this record still is a ... read more

genuinely dissapointed in this, i was hyped for this since in both their fantastic debut record plus the 2 enjoyable singles, but when the time came for the first listen, i was left limp dicked.
i left the album with a frown of my face just from how let down i was, its not entirely a bad record, vein.fm have done a great job at evolving their sound from their last record, but i guess i wanted more it.
oh well maybe i can enjoy this album more on relistens but currently my dissapointment is ... read more

For some reason they decided to make the two last songs the two worst songs. The clean vocals hurt this album a bit but this album still kicks a ton of ass in its more brutal moments. This albums fucks so hard when it hits man no cap.
