Wow. This is pretty horrible. Emergency Gate play a variation of Melodic Death Metal and I'll at least acknowledge their trying to make it sound different, but this is like "OK, In Flames went pretty fucking crappy post-2000. Let's see if we can out-crap them." The backbone (*cough*) of the music is definitely Gothenburg-style Melodic Death Metal, but these guys have turned it into... pop music? Electro crap, keyboards aplenty (and not good keyboards), and an extremely annoying mix of melodeath growls and clean, pop-ish vocals. I'm sure this will appeal to a more mainstream crowd, as most of the guts of metal have been taken out and left behind – crappy keyboards and shitty clean vocals being the main culprits here. This is not without any musical merit, but no matter what, every time I listen to this I feel like I wasted another 47 minutes of my life.
