At a time where acts such as Limp Bizkit and Korn seemed to be all the rage, major-label record companies were quick to market similar acts. One such act was Lifer. Unfortunately, while they try to throw their own take on the mix of the rap-core genre, Lifer's self-titled debut amounts to little more than another filler in music bins at major chain music stores and a quick single at airplay on the local hard rock radio station. Singer Nick Coyle has a good voice and shows himself capable of good harmonies, especially on such songs as "Ugly," but this quickly dissipates into the aptly named song "Boring." Lacking creativity and a spark that speaks beyond the marketing of "the man," Lifer is one album to steer clear of.

This is one of the greatest bands I have heard, They really need to tour, how bout in Peoria or somewhere near there? Come on guys!!!
Lifer isn't a bad band. Most of their songs have a heavy groove. But, they aren't hit material. Record companies look for hits. If you can't produce them your gone. The fact the Lifer no longer shares the Universal label (or any label) with Godsmack bares this fact out. Just nothing memorable about their music. Nothing that you're gonna have trouble getting out of your head like say Greed by Godsmack. So, life goes on for Lifer without a record deal. Good luck men!
