On November 13, 2012 Motionless White released their second album, Infamous. This album was entirely different than their debut album, Creatures and in my honestly opinion -a hell of a lot better.
A little over a month before the album was set to be released, it was leaked onto the internet. This caused a lot of conversation among fans, and surely made the band wonder what was going to happen sales wise. The album actually ended up charting at number 53 on the Billboard 200, 19 on the Top Rock albums, nine on the Top Independent charts and five on the Top Hard Rock albums. So it did very well despite the fact that it was leaked.
The lead single, "Devil's Night" came just after the album's announcement in September, and honestly the track is incredibly inspiring. It does sort of call out those who are against you, all while saying you're not giving up and you're there to stay. All while done in this awesome metalcore way that you can't help bu appreciate.
The thing I enjoyed about this album is it was much crisper sounding than Creatures did. If I'm honest, that album gave me a headache, so to hear them do something entirely different was refreshing. This album really showed me the potential Motionless In White had. They also sounded very much so like they're inspired by Marilyn Manson, which is something to admire as well.
If pressed to pick a couple of stand out tracks, I would have to say, "Devil's Night", "Hatefuck" and "If Its Dead, We'll Kill It."
The album is filled with a lot of inspiration, you just have to actually listen to catch it.
This is not the most recent album from Motionless In White, but its still a great one. I actually have already reviewed their latest album, Reincarnate and you can read it now, if you would like. I also highly encourage you to head on over to Motionless In White's website because they have lots coming up. They are going to be on the Vans Warped tour until August 13, and then later on will also be performing at Rock Allegiance in September, and later in the fall will be going out with Korn and Breaking Benjamin. All the tour dates can be found on their website.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
