A War You Cannot Win

A War You Cannot Win by All That Remains
Released: Nov 2012
Label: Razor & Tie Label
Like many so-called "metalcore" or "melodic death metal" bands, this Massachusetts bunch doesn't have a lot of recognizable hardcore punk or death metal in their barrage, give or take Shadows Fall alumnus Philip Labonte's vomitous by-the-book bully-boy barking. He alternates or overlaps that with a higher-pitched sensitive-guy style, so basically it adds up to screamo. "Asking Too Much" gets a bit of '80s pop AOR in its pop-punk; "What If I Was Nothing" is a pleading ballad; "Intro" and "Calculating Loneliness" are tolerably fluttering instrumentals. None of it is particularly distinctive.
