Eyes Set To Kill are a metalcore band right? RIGHT? I don’t know, maybe I’ve missed something here, but fourth effort ‘White Lotus’ just sounds like an alt-metal band attempting to cater to the breakdown crowd. The album runs for 10 tracks, clocking in at barely over a half hour, but really there are only 5 proper songs here. You’ve got 2, then an interlude (why.jpg), 3 more, and then 5 (!) acoustic songs, one of which is a Nirvana cover, and another of which is an acoustic rendition of an earlier song from the album. You’ve gotta be thinking the die-hard ESTK fans are gonna be feeling rather short changed on this one.
