A Vile Display of Humanity - Self-Titled

.
A Vile Display of Humanity's self-titled album lives up to its punk rock reputation. This angry album includes an expansive twenty songs. One song, "Bleeding Out," clocks in an the epic length of 3:48. However, the most of these songs are either under three or two minutes. Punk rock has never been about extending songs. That's because there are no guitar or drum solos.

The group begins its album with what sounds like a political rant with "Minimum Wage." Jake Youngberg and Doug Mitchell trade off on led vocals. It's tough to always pick up on what they're singing about. These are angrily screamed vocals. They're like the rantings and ravings of madmen, and those sorts of things are rarely decipherable.

On the plus side, it's always good to hear straight ahead punk rock music. This because it's real, human music. It's not the stuff of, say, EDM, where it seems as though a monkey could program much of that. Rather, these are truly passionate people pouring their blood, sweat and tears into their songs.

This is also not that annoying pop-punk either, which is an oxymoron if there ever was one. You're either punk, or you're not. A Vile Display of Humanity are punk, all the way.
