A lot of times people wonder "what exactly is it that make a band posers?" I mean, is it songwriting? Is it image or lyrics? How can you tell? The truth is it's a combination of factors, all the elements of a band from image to sound to origins that make it plain that a band is trying to ride a trend rather than genuinely explore the depths and nuances of a musical style. Eastern Front are a poser band, and that's just as plain as if they called themselves posers on their Myspace. This is utterly generic 'extreme' metal that borrows every cliché and well-worn musical gimmick in the entire pantheon from Dimmu Borgir to Bolt Thrower. There is not an original idea in the music or the lyrics anywhere, but even more so there is not a genuine trace of feeling or emotion to be found at any point. This is processed, featureless, mass-produced and valueless.
