Another crew of pierced and freaky-hairdoed young malcontents, Professional Murder Music add electronic clatter and industrial grind to their dense, radio-friendly modern rock sound. Less aggro than Slipknot, though moodier than their pals Static-X, these professionally murderous dudes offer up a polished self-titled debut that's neither generic nor particularly original. The single "Slow" is certainly worthy of its moment in the sun, while the rest of the songs follow the same formula: a lot of build-up amid programmed bleeps and gargantuan guitar riffs to the inevitable fierce hook, laden with slick harmonies. But the band also attempts to conjure up a creepy horror movie vibe. (In fact, the track "Fall Again" was included in the soundtrack to the slasher flick Valentine.) At this, they're less than successful, creating an atmosphere that's about as scary as your average video game or Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode.

Ok, if you want good headbangin till your head falls off, this is it. It has tracks that you will certainly love. Nuff said. Get it now.
This is a very interesting band. They have succesfully stood out in a sea of mediocrity which is the new metal scene. They succesfully blend Cure style goth with high the energy of the deftones and the power of godhead. Their interpratation of ''A Night Like This'', by the Cure is especially amazing. The perfect soundtrack for the night.
Damn this is some of the best music i've ever heard!! Their musical talent is like that of none other bands that I've heard in the past 3 years of my life. This CD is a must buy!!! their music is cutting edge hardcore s**t! They're one of my favorite bands god damn, I'm listening to PMM right now as I write this reveiw. If you don't get this Cd, My friend.. you don't know what the f**k your missing.
PMM is totally amazing!! Living in the days of corparate-fabricated bands, it is good to see a group stand out on the edge. Like their name implies, they are cutting edge -- like nothing else I have ever heard. They combine the goth of The Cure/Peter Murphy with full in-your-face metal riffs mixed with some modern sounding techno-layers. The result is the future of hard-rock/metal. I hope I get to see these guys in concert one day. I think it will be a life-changing experience. They have some Orgy tinge to the mixing/production of the album (I think they share the same producer/engineer). This album is a must-have!!
I love PMM! Seriously.. they have the best music I have heard in a while. I went from being a Deftones fanatic to a PMM fanatic. Great music. I love it. Don't change your style!
