Neurotic November – Truth About You: A Video Breakdown
The truth hurts… specifically our eyes and ears.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with lowest-common denominator music. Sometimes you just need something to bob your head to or something to have on in the background. Whatever helps get you through leg day, right brah? There is something wrong, though, with music that may make you stupider just by listening to it.
Neurotic November are a deathcore/electronic/everything you love is dead band from Miami. I’d rather call them “The Pride Of Victory Records”. I bestow such a title on them just so people are aware that Victory is miles away from the label they used to be 20-25 years ago. At least I understood the label’s shift towards bands like Taking Back Sunday and Hawthorne Heights. Kids that spend that much money on bad sleeve tattoos, piercings, and swoopy Zelda haircuts will definitely spend money on music. We already know that deathcore fans will spend money on garbage. This stuff, though. I don’t know man. I’m not quite at the “get off my lawn” stage of my life, but this is definitely pushing me into the “What the hell is wrong with kids these days” category.
Am I overreacting? Is this band an insult to band’s with slightly similar names like Neurosis, Neuraxis, and Novembers Doom? Take a look at Neurotic November’s latest video for the song “Truth About You” and decide for yourself.
