Motionless In White - Creatures Cover

An of-the-moment band taking things seriously

While Pennsylvania ’s Motionless In White push past the boundaries of screamo into more metallic territories, their intermittently screamed and harmonised vocals, epic choruses and brutal breakdowns keep them firmly in touch with their roots. Thematically, there’s a venom spat out in opener ‘Immaculate Misconception’ that’s maintained – lyrical allusions in frontman Chris Motionless’ interpretations of history and literature or parallels with his musical heroes (listen out for The Smiths reference in ‘Puppets (The First Snow)‘) keep things good and dark throughout. At times, the dramatic crosses over into the theatrical, but even then it’s good to see an of-the-moment band taking things seriously.
