Your Pain is Endearing
That’s a four-word, descriptive title and so my first thoughts were that I’d be dealing with another half-arsed American Deathcore band again. Wrong! At least partly. Yes, this material is American, the band is from Boston, Massachusetts, but no this isn’t really Deathcore and it’s certainly not half-arsed. The band itself describes their game as ”modern Death Metal” and state that ”they do not seek to follow trends”. That’s good, I like bands that find their own path into global appreciation.
Your Pain is Endearing was formed in 2008, combining a blast-in-the-mouth brutality with pure aggression and also ”technical mastery”. Sounds like a billion notes per minute then, doesn’t it? But the truth is that these guys haven’t lost track in their search from churning out the most complex sequences of notes in the most teeth-breaking manner and are building songs that work.
The band released a couple of EPs, the second of which is called The Turning of Tides and they did a music vid for that one, presented down below. The song carries the images-of-rape-and-torture inducing title Your Body is My Canvas. And the latter is exactly what the song’s music video depicts in agonizing detail.
According to the group’s Facebook a first full-length album, to be titled The Human Condition, is in the making. Keep an eye on these chaps if you liked what you heard!
