What: A compilation of deathcore bands covering nu-metal bands.
When: May 2014
Where: The label is based out of Rockland, MA.
Why: I've got to know what it sounds like when someone covers Saliva. Terrible, it turns out.
[The Radness Average (or star rating) is derived from assigning each song a number of stars based on a 1-5 scale, then adding the total number of stars, and then dividing that number of total stars by the number of songs on the record. A Radness Average of 4.0 or higher indicates a good or great record. A Radness Average of 2.0 or less indicates pure crap. Everything else is in the middle somewhere.]
