Blood On Dance Floor - It's Hard To Be A Diamond In A...

Reviewed by: eatbabiesyum (07/20/10)
Blood On The Dance Floor - I'ts Hard To Be A Diamond In A Rhinestone World
Record Label: Blood On The Dance Floor
Release Date: September 12, 2008

As a huge fan of electronic, dance, and shock rock music, I actually had hope for this band. I honestly tried to like it. But what a disapointment Blood on the Dance Floor is. Although the band is going for an ultra obcene sound (as they themselves described it), the lyrical content comes off like it has no real direction. The shock value isnít from trying send a meaningful message, nor is it simply supposed to be funny; it is shock for the sake of shock. The band is also stuck in the awkward position of taking themselves too seriously while unintentionally sounding silly (where itís then impossible to take them seriously). And while this lack of clear direction is bad enough, the actual lyrics make the situation even worse. Theyíre almost completely sexual in nature and are either insultingly blunt or made up of recycled cheesy metaphors.

The vocals carrying these lyrics are most often a boring sing-rap that showcases no sort of talent whatsoever. To be fair, they get the job the done, but in no way can be considered good. And while they may not impress musically, the electronics are not bad by any means. The synth work is completely average (yet pretty good for being generic) and is the bandís strongest asset. This hints at some sort of talent, but laughable lines like ďDo you like my sexy hair? Iím not wearing any underwear!Ē draw too much of a contrast to it. This implies the desperate song writing is one big marketing tool to attract young impressionable scenesters. Which is very sad to see, especially for a band that claims the disgust they receive is just a misunderstood reaction to what they consider to be honest creative music, which it is certainly not.

Recommended If You LikeJeffree Star, Millionares, Brokencyde, and anything else you should probably be ashamed of

great review. The band would be far better off if they realized that it sounds like a big joke to everyone else, and that we are laughing at them, and not with them.

thanks, and yeah they seem to think by also making fun of that silly eleven year old girl, they can distract the disgust from themselves....but they're failing miserably

it's about time BOTDF got some recognition on AP

yeah i thought it was appropriate due to all the recent fuss over the band, plus it's morally right to warn the public that Brokencyde isn't the only crunkcore abomination

there's a lot of great albums so far this year, right now im reviewing the new Korn record
which i'll know will get a lot of hate on here, but is actually fantastic and one of the heaviest things i've heard in a long time.
it's so incredibly raw...just dripping with emotion aha

As a sidenote, Dahvie got some real internet publicity on 4chan for allegedly "molesting" an 11 year old. The Internet turned on the 11 year old, by posting her address and phone number up and repeatedly prank-calling her. In return, Dahvie and the other guy made a video making FUN of the 11 year old, even though she was a huge fan of theirs. Yeah, that just sums up what a true scumbag he is.

Great review though.
