At times, Modern Error go just as heavy on the music as they do the emotion. Error Of The World – a rampant metalcore rager that sees Zak declare, ‘We’re the error of the world, and we get what we deserve’ – is an effervescent metal titan, while A Vital Sign is more emo-inflected, with sharper guitars and strained vocals adding to its potency.
It’s truly great stuff, and the knowledge that this is only the beginning of Modern Error’s musical foray makes the strength of Victim Of A Modern Age’s material all the more impactful. On this evidence, the modern age of rock is in very safe hands.
