Having only just formed last summer, Leeds punks Brawlers have quickly made a name for themselves for their insane live show.

Brawlers and what 'I Am Worthless...' is all about.

Alaya are the latest shiny new product from Los Angeles: a city responsible for delivering unto the world outstanding music in the past, but equally as culpable in producing vast swathes of rock-orientated doggie-do that starts off thinking it’s something pretty special and ends up in the CD bargain bin in Banardos.
Luckily for Alaya, the kids don’t buy CDs anymore anyway. Nevertheless, their debut release ‘Thrones’ is deeply flawed and makes a right hash of representing a band who are talented enough to write something far, far better.

Imagine a covers band that played equal parts Rage Against The Machine, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Limp Bizkit, and Bring Me The Horizon. Only all their songs are mash ups and no one really knows what they’re supposed to be doing. Terrible, isn’t it? Wouldn’t you rather pop the kettle on and read a nice book than listen to that? I sure would. Unfortunately, my lot is to repeatedly listen to it in the form of Idiom, whilst attempting to utilize my rapidly melting brain to write about them.
The title track does a good chunk of the damage. Half heavy riff and shouted vocals, half soaring pop-rock chorus, with a little bit of an attempted Zack de la Rocha impression thrown in for good measure. Often difficult beginnings lead to great achievement though. Only, wait, is that Korn featuring Fred Durst? No. It’s just some people trying, for some unholy reason, to write a song that sounds like it is. This particular mess is called ‘Braindead’ and I’m going to avoid the oh-so-obvious joke that a song this bad with a title that apt might allow.
‘Said and Done’ sounds like your dial-up Internet connecting. Only instead of getting to talk to your friends on MSN, at the end of it you have to listen to ‘In The Fall’ . I think at one point it might have been a rave anthem that’s since been infected with some sort of nu-metal virus. Fortunately, should you ever be tortured by means of this noise you can fade out by focusing on one of the worst sounding snare drums of all time as it pounds your love of music to dust.
