Sound: What do you get when you cross heart-stopping metal, a crazy ass synthesizer, 2 spaztastic vocalists, and funny songs? You get the best experimental band in the world: Arsonists Get All The Girls. Everyone this day is searching for a creative, new genre of metal. Arsonists made their legendary sound with the help of many lineup changes, two vocalists (1 low and 1 high), and wacky keyboard/synth sounds. Their first studio album, Hit's From The Bow, was recently re-released with new cover art. So how do you describe the sound? Experimental puts it best. It's a mix of death metal, metalcore, deathcore, electronica, and jazz believe it or not. The breakdowns and riffs are catchy and will play through your head for hours. The songs vary in length but the album is long enough to keep you plenty entertained. The vocals sound like a person is having a seizure, and is different than many vocalists these days. Good tracks for sound include Scobra Vs. Cupcake, Sinsinatti, and City Of Angels Cakewalk. // 10

Lyrics: So what are the lyrics about? If you were hoping Arsonists had serious political views or religious stance, turn away now. Arsonists Get All the Girls sing about random stuff, funny random stuff. You start off the album with the ice cream shooting in This Time You Are Going To Get It Dirty Shirly and continue to a firing squad in Scobra Vs. Cupcake to finish off by fisting society in City Of Angels Cakewalk. There are many places with melodic singing that are so catchy, you will find yourself singing along the next time you play it. Although the lyrics are nonsense, their hilarity and randomness will leave you crying for joy and laughter. // 10

Overall Impression: This album has inspired me in so many ways. Ha ha no it hasn't. It is an incredible album that is hardcore and hilarious (hardcore hilarious). If you like their second album, the Game Of Life, you will love the album that made them famous. Go see them live when they come to your town. They are insanely hyper, energetic, and insane: as heard in Hit's From The Bow. Buy this album now and R.I.P. Pat Maso. // 10
