A Bullet For Pretty Boy just released their new album, Symbiosis. With it being recorded at Planet Z studios with producer Zeuss, it still fell short of something better. ABFPB have still yet to find their sound. The melodies on the album often seem to sound like an after thought. The track “Illumination” is nothing but an instrumental that seems to serve no purpose to the album. It split the record into separate halves, almost separating two EP’s instead of creating a single LP. The breakdowns came across forced and rushed. However, there does seem to be light at the end of the tunnel. The final track “Self-Disclosure” is the best track on the album. The track is put together well, not rushed, and plays well with the vocal melodies and sound. If this is a glimpse of the direction the band is going, then there is still hope.

The Undertaking!, San Diego's newest wild bunch, is about to release their debut album, and, if their live show is a premonition of any kind, the world will be opening up to one heck of a party with them. Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.Full Feature More from The Undertaking
