EDITORS’ NOTES

Back with producer Drew Fulk—who also worked with them on 2017’s Graveyard Shift—the Scranton, Pennsylvania, quintet turn their creative energies to an electro-industrial sound that complements their alchemy of metalcore and goth metal. Known for collaborating with some of hard rock’s biggest names, like Jonathan Davis (Korn) and Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth), the band wanted to separate themselves from any outside influence. “Disguise” and “Holding on to Smoke” show frontman Chris Cerulli at his most vulnerable, unbottling his personal struggles with identity and mental health. He welcomes all the misfits to unite on the soul-baring “/c0de,” positioning himself as an empathetic frontman who’s committed to promoting a message of individuality. “Legacy” quells the intensity just a notch, as Cerulli leads the charge with a call to arms: “What will your legacy be?”

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Natural progression of MIW

I truly believe Disguise is one of MIW's best albums. Top 3 out of the main LPs, for sure. My only nitpick is that I wish it was a 12 track record with just one more heavier song added, probably placed after 'Brand New Numb'. The song 'Catharsis' was the best possible closer for the album, and I would say 'Legacy' is the weakest of the bunch. Other than that, no complaints here. All of the songs are catchy in some form or fashion. 'Headache' (MIW's version of Linkin Park's 'One Step Closer'), </c0de>, and Another Life all surprised me with how amazing they were. 'Thoughts & Prayers' and 'Undead Ahead II' are both filthy, in the best way possible. The production is solid, and most of all, Chris' vocals are the best they've ever been. One second versatile, the next, soaring and sweeping between verses. Some of the best, most honest lyrics since the 'Infamous' record. Solid 8-9/10 for me!

Variety of Sounds

Upon my first listening of this album, I'm impressed with how much this band has grown. Top tier production, new and exciting sounds the band has never tampered with, and great vocals from Chris yet again. This album is a new beginning for this band and will revolutionize them more into the mainstream. They still retain a nostalgic "Creatures" vibe through some songs that will satisfy the OG's. Overall great new entry into Motionless in White.
