I didn't like this band's self-titled debut album from 2003, and I don't like this one either. If anything, the ensuing nine years have moved this band successfully from 'generic' to 'hideous'. This is not the generic Power/Speed metal of the debut, but rather awful crap of a more individual and somehow less memorable stripe. It's obvious this band is trying to go a more Dream Evil/Firewind kind of direction, but they are hampered by having no good riffs and a horrible frontman in Jack Spider, who is just unlistenably bad. He cannot stay on key, and his out of tune honking renders this impossible to derive any kind of pleasure from. The title supposedly stands for "Metal Will Never Die", maybe not, but I'd rather not have to listen to these guys torture it.
