CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Metal Injection

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

90
Metal Hammer
Boston’s metalcore mutoids go on an exhilarating sonic rampage.
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.

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.

80
Kerrang!

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

Sputnikmusic
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.
74
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.

70
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.

Never heard of vein.fm before, so I jumped into this blind. This was some pretty good mathcore, however most songs on here don't exactly hit as hard as they probably should. More than half of the tracklist is about 1 minute long, which in itself isn’t a bad thing, but with this type of sound, it doesn’t really give the songs much time to fully express themselves, despite them being pretty damn great anyway. Also, vocals can sometimes be a bit of a mixed bag, sometimes being ... read more

Album #9 from Album Safari 2022.
I remember liking this one on first listen without really knowing why, so I gave it another go.
I remember why: it’s a delicate patchwork stitched together by simultaneous rage and heart. And the result is, for the most part, a solid ride the whole way through that only suffers from the violent twists and turns that sometimes come too suddenly.

HEAVY AS FUCK no.2
This time lyrics didn't struck me THAT hard like on their debut but they are still pretty emotional. There are some tracks here that didn't hit as hard as I expected them to but were just fine (expect Funeral Sound that did struck me hard lyricly and musicly) The use of clean vocals could've been way worse, but I actually liked it. "Fear In Non Fiction" feature of Geoff Rickly from Thursday was also great. I am pleased with this record nevertheless of it's downs, at ... read more

this record goes hard, like, very hard.
that's all, why you're still here? this album is very good, that's all ya need to hear.
but seriously listen to this thing, it has some very interesting stuff on it.
such as Wherever You Are and Funeral Sound, they actually don't sound like Vein.fm songs, that's why i love them
yea, i like the softer parts on this album, they actually sound amazing and really well performed, maybe it also helps that i love Fleshwater so i'm used the the cleans of the ... read more
