M.O.R.A.: Self-titled: CD

Finnish metal “hardcore” with lots of chugga-chugga riffs, gallop-speed tempos, and dual vocals with cadences that belie a hip hop influence. Way too derivative and faceless, but I imagine if I was an angry, bored as fuck nine-year-old circa 2012 with no sense of history and the fact that there’s been at two decades of stuff that not only sounds exactly like this, but has too often been done much better, I’d probably be sympathetic to it.
