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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "My Sword Longs to be Wrapped With Flesh!" September 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wildly inventive noisegrind November 27, 2013
Format:Vinyl
The Number Twelve Looks Like You might not be the best grindcore band of the new millennium, or even of their own respective state (they fall behind The Dillinger Escape Plan, Burnt By The Sun, and Discordance Axis for being the king of New Jersey-bred grind), but they were a very good and promising group nonetheless. As evidenced by their fourth and final release, 2009's "Worse Than Alone," they were the possessors of impeccable musicianship and innovative, intelligent songwriting. And they might first and foremost be a grindcore band, but it is actually a little misleading to say that they can be pigeonholed into just one genre because they combine together tech-y grind with elements of math/noisecore, hardcore, metalcore, jazz, screamo, death metal, and even progressive rock. Hence, their influences cover a myriad of fellow math-obsessed extreme metallists, including (but not limited to) TDEP, Converge, Meshuggah, Fantomas, The Fall Of Troy, Between The Buried And Me, and F The Facts.

Tracks like the opening "Glory Kingdom" (which finds a noteworthy bass intro giving way to an awesomely huge and brutal breakdown, followed by a succession of throat-tearing grindcore with blasting drums, roaring vocals, and funky, walking bass lines) and "To Catch A Tiger," with its equally-as-momentous breakdown and unorthodox, cheese-grater-esque, pulling the listener's eardrums in every direction guitar work, evoke vintage Dillinger. (Think their "Calculating Infinity" to "Irony Is A Dead Scene" era.

Ordered vinyl, did not receive vinyl. I received a cd. So that really stunk! This cd is awesome for math core lovers though! Love the band but the seller didn't even have vinyl to give me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different sound but still great June 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.
