Rainbow 6: Lockdown Soundtrack Review
by Hobo

Oh my god, it's official. Killing Zone think they're Cypress Hill - the lyric patterns and the vocals are a direct rip off. No f**king sh*t. I once owned Cypress Hill's Stoned Raiders, and this song is just a cut and paste job on two songs on the album, but with a few more bad nu-metal riffs thrown in. They don't even try to mask it! Pure unabated thievery. Pathetic. Send in the next candidate.

Next up we have a track from Fear Factory - and a good one at that. Why the f**k did they go and have to go and blow everything with their new album? They are (were) a solid, innovative and brutal band - they have the talent to pull out something infinitely better than their latest sh*theap. I can only blame Burton's warped views of his vocal abilities and retirement fund.

Another Cypress rip off? This one calls themselves Kush. Great name. now kindly sit down. It sounds like they're yelling "My Stapler!" Classic. Next up; some melodic bulls*** devoid of any real emotion, skill or musicianship. The song is "Never Forget" by the band Not Forgotten. An inspiring name for an inspiring song. The next song from Last Amanda sounds like Placebo, but worse if you can imagine that. Then for some reason the people in charge of this soundtrack thought "Not Forgotten" deserved a second song on the compilation - this one however, rips off Hoobastank.

Luckly a good Soilwork song from Stabbing the Drama saves me from throwing this promo CD out in a fit of rage. Trivium give us a passable Soilwork/Lamb of God type track in "Like Light to the Flies", though I see no real reason for the hype surrounding the band. And Menemic sound exactly the same to me.

Bury Your Dead are again, a totally obvious rip off band - stealing Hatebreed's music and claiming it as their own. How anyone can even be fooled into thinking this is original material is beyond me. These guys haven't even made a token effort to differentiate themselves - everything from lyrics, vocal style, guitar sound/style, the drums and the song structure are taken directly from Hatebreed. F**king pathetic.

Strapping Young Lad were nice enough to lend the killer single "Love?" from their awesome new release Alien to this soundtrack. Great song, good to see SYL back on the level they were at in 1998 after that sub-par self titled album. Then just when I start to feel good, 36 Crazyfists turn up with a s***ty melodic nu-metal track - look guys, you're not deep, you're not heavy, you're not scary and you are certainly neither talented or original in any way shape or form. How do you live with yourselves?

Chimaira aren't too bad for another post-Hatebreed metalcore group. Unlike Bury Your Dead they actually try and offer something a bit different instead of shamelessly thieving. Not to say they actually deserve some merit - this is like a s*** sandwich to a near-dead starving quadriplegic. Last of all we have that Devil Driver single that pops up on one out of every three compilations I review. Don't these guys have any other songs? It's alright for what it is I suppose, same kind of stuff as Coal Chamber was; basic riffs, some double bass and of course, Dez's vocals (and egotism). Pretty boring, nothing to get excited about.

A lot of blatantly derivative and generic crap on this compilation. I assume this is for a video game and not a movie. Who buys these video game soundtracks anyway? For anyone who cares, the Fear Factory, Soilwork and Strapping Young Lad tracks are good, and the remaining thirteen songs are just different shades of tripe. Don't bother.
