This Friday, All At Sea will be releasing their new EP, Systemised. Fan of Malevolence and Rage Against The Machine? This may be for you.
The EP begins with Wake Work Repeat. Relatable title, and an even more relatable track, especially if you’re feeling a little pissed off with everyday life. This track is a great introduction to the EP. The moment you listen to it, you’ll be bobbing your head along, or tapping your hand. It’s a track that expresses anger through it’s catchy rhythm, vocals and especially the lyrics. The words “Same shit, different day going round in my head. Everyday’s a fucking struggle just to get out of bed. Go to work, slave away just for minimum wage” couldn’t be anymore relatable. This track has an amazing rebellious feel to it, and I’d reccommend giving it a listen on days where you’re angry with the world.
Next up is Consume. Another relatable track, specifically about greediness and selfishness, with no realisation of the reality around them. We all know someone who’s like that well enough.
Gimme The Mic follows a similar rebellious style to Wake Work Repeat, specifically with its lyrics. The track’s meaning follows the pressures that come from society to be a certain way, but only wanting to live life your way, and no one else’s. It’s all about rebelling against what society expects, and not give a single darn about it. I especially loved the lines “Cause all I wanna do is play that stage, don’t care what people say. Don’t want a job that I hate, and a life that’s so mundane”. I know I’m quoting the lyrics a lot, but they’re so well-written, it’s difficult not to share them.
Next up, we have Life Value. Fancy another rebellious track? Well, here you go. This time, this track has talks about not bowing down to authority and the problems with the system. The best part of this track would definitely have to be the guitar riffs. While they’re still brilliant in the other tracks, I find it shows even more with this one in particular.
Lastly, we have Business of Faith. There’s something a little different in this track, which is about a minute and thirty seconds in, when the vocalist impersonates a bible basher. It’s an amusing, and pretty cool thing to add to the track, and it works brilliantly. While Wake Work Repeat was an excellent introduction to the EP, this is an awesome conclusion to it.
Overall, this EP is badass. It’s cool, rebellious, hardcore and perfect for when you feel pissed off at the world. Also, as I said before, if you’re already a fan of this type of genre, you’ll enjoy this EP very much.
