Editorial Reviews

Iwrestledabearonce (iwabo) makes music that turns heads. Their spastic blending of genres maintains a cohesive sound that draws in listeners from many musical worlds. Love it or hate it - as long as they get a strong reaction to their music, the members of this band will feel that they have done their duty. Their debut full-length 'it's all happening.' was produced by producer-extraordinaire ross robinson (slipknot, the cure, at the drive in) with engineer/producer ryan boesch (eels, foo fighters) at the helm. The new album manages to take their complex sound one step beyond all expectations. You've be warned! For fans of the dillenger escape plan, converge

Sounds like it's really a band trying rip off Mr. Bungle, playing rejected riffs from Gorguts' "Obscura", early Dillinger Escape Plan, and Arcturus's haunting and atmospheric singing (the one good thing about this band) and it's all being blended together carelessly without any actual thought. Although at times it's quite funny for example how badly funk and deathcore is being played back to back on "Danger in the Manger" (the videos are also quite entertaining), it's hardly anything pleasant overall, because it all sounds like carelessly pasted collages of bland riffs, atonal playing, and bad genre shifts rather than some form of actual character or even some sense of skill. Plus I've heard a lot of the things like this done better before and placed in right times and with remarkable playing, so you fauxhemians telling me to open my mind to it isn't going to work on me but if you still want to enjoy it anyways, that's fine. I'll be listening to those other bands as well as Sigh that show actual sense of musical knowledge and churn out substantial characteristics and replay value rather than bands like these that take from other bands and act random that stand out just for the sake of it. As for Krysta Cameron, she'd be better off playing adult contemporary instead. Yes, I even find some of that music (especially Dido) substantial compared to this.

If these guy are really good players, I'd like to hear them actually play jazz music by itself.

Iwrestledabearonce first-and-foremost stand out from the rest of the crowd on account of being a band that features a frontwoman (yes, you read that correctly: WOMAN, not MAN) that goes by the name of Krysta Cameron. But thinking that is the only reason why they deserve attention is like thinking that the only reason Ozzy Osbourne is famous is because he starred in a reality T.V. show. Indeed, IWABO are a very promising, talented, and surprising group of young new go-getters. They are so good, in fact, that this reviewer has no reservations about saying that they are one of the most underrated and/or overlooked new extreme metal groups of the new millennium.

Don't let the fact that they originated in Georgia fool you: They are not a sludge or doom metal band. Their 2009 album, "It's All Happening," blends together some elements of grindcore with strong metalcore, deathcore, and tech-metal influences. The result is a very good debut that often even borders on being great.

The deathcore-leaning opener "You Ain't No Family" makes a strong case for being the album's highpoint, and if nothing else, it is at least a juggernaut of a song that raises the bar high for the rest of the songs to hurdle over. See, it is driven by thunderous, machine gun drumming, fast, blast beat-aided tempo changes, and both monstrous and startlingly clean vocals. The guitar work, meanwhile, is of the frenzied, technical, jazzy style, and the breakdowns are crunchy and brutal. But the song's major and most distinguishable attribute has to be the memorable, epic, and technical bass solo that Dave Branch slips into the mix. Next up, "White Water In the Morning" begins on a surprisingly melodic note, with soaring melodies and accomplished clean singing.

Since there is singing on this Cd, It's All Happening reminds me of Tori Amos, the only difference is that the vocalist in Iwrestledabearone Growls, but parts of this album sounds a lot like Tori Amos, I know this sounds weird, but for me that's what I hear. Iwrestledabearone is good, but not great just yet could be better. I can listen to this album without getting bored with it. I like death core bands that growl, not sing, but Iwrestledabearone does it great. I think Iwrestledabearone has potential to do well.

I think this album is interesting. Just stop crying about it, if you didn't buy the CD, then don't post a review here. The singer is great, and I like (some of) the transitions from Jazz or whatever. Obviously, there are some crappy transitions and broken structure here and there, but overall - I give it 4 stars. I don't need every part of every song to be awesome. Most of the music I listen to, be it prog, death/core, etc... have their crappy parts of songs, and then they have the parts that sound really good - even out of context. Lastly, who cares if some other stupid band I have never heard of did this 10 years ago? That doesn't make my taste in music any less valid than yours, metal slob.

This band does a lot of stuff at once, so they must be really unique and aspeshul! There's a lot of stuff going on in the album art, so you can tell this is RANDOM and WACKY like my Invader Zim DVDs XD. You could errantly tune through radio stations and get the same effect, but Century Media respects your intelligence enough to know you'd rather buy this instead.

One thing about IWABO is that they are aiming to be completely ridiculous, and that is ok. If you like metal/grindcore that is spastic, unstructured, and full of wild and crazy sounds then this is for you. Someone said that the songs (as well as album art) is a mess and to me, that is exactly what this band wants you to think. They present the idea that they don't give a **** what you think about them.

So I would say if you're looking for something completely whacked out and you don't mind trying new things, pick this up. I have a few complaints though about this band. 1, experimental is great and progessing in music is wonderful...but there is such a thing as being experimental for the sake of being experimental. There are odd changes in this album that just make no sense. The jazzy riff fusion that is becoming more popular in metal just doesn't fit. The off key vocals SOMETIMES work, but as a whole, I would have either cleaned them up or left them out and dumbed down the effects. It honestly sounds like IWABO is just throwing things in left and right with the intent of making the song sound aimless and honestly, a bit corny and stupid. You can clearly tell these are highly skilled, extremely talented, and above all precise musicians. Why waste those attributes making music that is just unpleasant to listen to? Just because it changes riffs every 5 seconds doesn't mean it is a "well structured song".

::THIS IS NOT BASED ON FACTS!:: I don't know how true this is but once a guy told me "Oh I went to an IWABO show and the singer saw a kid wearing a My Chemical Romance shirt and she walked up to the front of the stage and punched him in the face!
