A War Within‘s sophomore release, Believe, makes the job of writing a review very difficult. When you’re looking for genuinely enjoyable and solid metalcore tracks, songs like “Primrose Path” and “We Are Legion” are definitely right up your alley. But “A New Hope” and “Slave” are prime examples of why there is a hung jury in my head constantly in need of more Chinese takeout to try and come to an accurate conclusion.
Remember that band Woe, Is Me? Yeah, that band that we have to thank for the emergence of Tyler Carter. It was also a band with a complete clusterfuck of a line-up. It felt like every month a member joined or parted ways with the group. However, because of Woe, Is Me a lot of great new music emerged. Carter and his latest band Issues aside, another gem to spring from the ashes of Woe, Is Me is a phoenix we can refer to as Favorite Weapon. Favorite Weapon was the side project and eventual full-fledged band formed by Hance Alligood, Tyler Carter’s replacement in the final days of Woe, Is Me. (Apparently being the clean vocalist of Woe, Is Me is like being the unclean vocalist of Attack Attack! *cough Caleb, Austin cough*)
Anyhow, Favorite Weapon’s debut album Sixty Saragossa dropped over the summer and was exceptionally well received. Constantly touring, the band seems to have finally found time to put together a music video for their single “Let’s Shake On It.” You can check out the video below and let us know what you think! (And no, your computer is not broken, there really is no sound in the video for the first 20 seconds.)
