"The Crywolf Broadcast" (Tragic Hero; 2008)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Fortified with a three-pronged guitar assault, North Carolina's My Hero is Me mesh rock, metal, and hardcore for that all too familiar sound countless bands employ on their 11-track endeavor, "The Crywolf Broadcast."

Adorned with song titles that are clever (“When Peter North Goes South,” in particular), this unit does manage to do a better job than most in rearranging parts to try and keep the sound fresh on cuts like the all-over-the-map “I Studied Metal at Julliard.” Their Maylene and the Sons of Disaster meets The Autumn Offering by way of Protest the Hero style, however, comes off as a touch too contrived across much of the span of this excursion, making it hard for this unit to get a good jump from out of the starting block.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
