Editorial Reviews

The band went all-or-nothing on this, their latest release. "Worse Than Alone" miraculously fuses every style of music they're influenced by, from classical and jazz to screamo, grindcore, and death metal, into one molten morass of auditory carnage.

As a drummer myself, I must say, this guy is one of the best out there right now.
Todd SE
If you like bands that fuse death metal, grind, Jazz, Latin and alternative rock, then you will probably enjoy this album.
D. Carney
It's not a melodic as some of the other tracks, but it's just way too catchy not to love.

It's taken me awhile to digest this album much like it took me awhile to digest Mongrel. But after months of tuning in and out of the album I finally took a good listen and I have to say, I love this album.

Regardless of how great the album really is, The Number 12 is an acquired taste. So, needless to say, Nuclear. Sad. Nuclear and Mongrel took me awhile to get into. But, honestly, I never liked the former so much. Mongrel was OK for me but it wasn't an album that would stay in my CD player for too long. As much as I wanted to love it, the problem was, I couldn't stay interested long enough. Sure, Mongrel had it's moments, but it was a flawed effort and I felt annoyed at the vocals quite honestly. I love the idea behind them, but the constant high-pitched screams definitely have me a headache and that's partly why I had trouble consistently listening to it.

Mongrel wasn't bad, but it wasn't perfect. This album had everything I wanted from Mongrel. The high pitched vocals are still there, but this time around, they're not anywhere near as annoying. Probably because they're a lot more cushioned then they were before. Mongrel had very raw sounding vocals. Also we have a lot more deep growling in this album and it complements the screams very nicely.

Glory Kingdom starts it off, and it's definitely one of my favorites. It's not a melodic as some of the other tracks, but it's just way too catchy not to love. Once it gets to the creepy interlude of the song where "my sword longs to be wrapped with flesh" is chanted, you'll just get mesmerized but the creepiness of the song and the amazing cymbal-work of Jon Karel, who, in my opinion, is one of the best drummers out there right now.

Their are some of the best songs of #12's career on this record, along with a couple I'm not quite sure about. Without going into a lot of explanation, this album gives a more diverse (if possible) sound than any of their previous efforts. The hard parts are harder, the melodic parts are softer, but the main thing is their voices have greatly improved as far as singing goes on this record. Their screams have always been great, but this is the first album in which the singing at points out shines the screaming.
Key tracks:
Glory Kingdom-Heavy and awesome
The Garden's All Nighters-Incredibly diverse, great guitar work
The League of Endangered Oddities-Great vocals, interesting instrumentals
I'll Make My Own Hours-Some of the best heavy parts they've done, with some amazing guitar work.

I haven't said much on this, but I believe the guitar AND the drums are what made this band in the past, on this record it feels like every instrument (including vocals) is on the same page. Amazing drumming and guitar as usual, vocals are slightly more rounded.

Granted, I have heard some bands that are in the same ball park as this in a way (i.e. Protest the Hero, sort of... kind of), but this band really does deliver about as much diversity as any band in any part of the metal genre can deliver. There are some brutal, heavy moments, some jazzy moments, some EPIC AS HELL moments, and some ridiculously progressive moments. These guys are very proficient in several types of genres, and some of the syncopation in this disc is so technical, it just blows my mind. As a drummer myself, I must say, this guy is one of the best out there right now. I've heard a bunch of their older stuff because my friends have it, but I actually started my own personal Number 12 collection with this CD, and I plan on buying some of their earlier work. Really awesome, definitely recommended. Also, check out Between the Buried and me, Protest the Hero, and my personal fav... Dream Theater.

Most people, including myself hate to see a band change so drastically over its career. With that said I can see how some would consider "Worse Than Alone" a disappointment. However for me this is not the case! I really like the new number 12 style. It is technical and very diverse. There classic number 12 heavy and grind parts and new jazzy parts fused into this album. As musicians, the number 12 are at their peak on this album. Jon Karel is one of the best drummers around these days. I think that "Worse than Alone" is great but not as great as "Mongrel." I think this album has just a little too much structure and simple (relatively speaking of course) rythums at times. If you like bands that fuse death metal, grind, Jazz, Latin and alternative rock, then you will probably enjoy this album.
