I Set My Friends On Fire

Album Notes:

With their unique future-focused slant on electro-screamo metal, I Set My Friends On Fire combines manic metal shrieks and gut-wrenching guitar chords with disconnected glitch-pop and precise math-rock with their album Astral Rejection.

Why You Should Listen To The Album:

Few bands have so perfectly amalgamated tech-heavy instrumentals and psychical lyrics with primitive howling. I Set My Friends On Fire practically creates a character with their music–that of the tortured robot constantly being ripped apart from rapid change.

Why You Shouldn’t Listen To The Album:

If you aren’t the sort of person who can stomach primal screaming, the disjointed quality of I Set My Friends On Fire’s music will render you a little nauseous.
