Let the record show it and let it show it clearly: the opening track on Emmure’s new album Eternal Enemies was due to be called ‘Bring A Gun To School‘. But, after some (understandable) backlash, on the final version of the Connecticut deathcore quintet ‘s sixth studio effort it is simply listed as ‘(Untitled)’. The question is left begging then – which one is it guys? Are you edgy controversialists who don’t give a mother fuck what people think, or the sort of band who coquettishly say Stuff That Will Get People’s Backs Up only to run away screaming when – surprise surprise – it gets people’s backs up. It’s a universal truth: the only thing worse than a shit-stirrer is a coward without the guts to stand by their shit-stirring ways.
