Review On Mador Maero’s Latest EP: Adversis

A Game Changer in the Metalcore and Hardcore Scene.

Speaking from a fan’s perspective, we might have remembered on the MadorMaero’s Facebook page when this EP was nothing more than just an announcement and an idea. Talking to the guys from time to time, the EP was nothing more than a series of ideas coming and going, with an end not really in the horizon. After all this time, it’s finally became a reality, and it was well worth the wait.

The EP is comprised of four tracks and one beginning interlude. As a whole the three tracks themselves bring an amount of freshness to the metal core and post hardcore scene. The talent that emanates from these four individuals leaves these tracks free of musical clichés often seen in both genres. Everything is purposeful in this colorful and very emotional EP.

Starting with the first track Razbliuto, the use of the deep and expressive use of the violin and piano gives this track more meat than just using a traditional guitar, bass, and drums setup. Not saying that there is anything wrong with tradition, but it’s nice to see music break away from tradition to create a different and more impactful piece. Combining those instruments with guitar creates not only emotionally moving piece, but also creates an edge that a song like this really needs. The song seems to be about sadness, anger, and the remembering of rather painful memories of losing someone close to said person and not really able to accept it, so the musical composition fits well with lyrics and the overall piece.

With Friends Like These is the third track of the EP. As with of the songs on this EP, there is something awe-inspiring about the quality and sounds of the musical compositions, especially this song. There is this nice back and forth thing going on with the guitar that sounds like an altercation between two people and the bass just adds that agitation to the vigorous track.

We then jump into the next track Glass Souls, which is a whole different animal compared to Razbiluto. It's angry and aggressive style definitely will definitely bring fans new and old to this band who are already fans of the metalcore and hardcore genre. It might also explain why this particular track was chosen to be the single to Adversis. It’s not only an addictive, interesting song instrumentally to listen to, but it also gives a reason for people to pay attention to this band. But what sets this song apart is the clear, talented, unclean vocals and the crisp, intense use of percussive instruments. The problem that some unclean vocalist face is making their lyrics understandable, so thankfully this was not a case with this song or any of the tracks. The last 40 seconds of this track is also pretty amazing, creating a sense of chaos in an already dynamic piece. If listeners are into intense energetic musical compositions then this is right up their alley.

The last song is Omens, a song that is both impressive in terms of vocals (clean and unclean) and the progressive use of guitar. We get this energetic and intense intro followed by a lot of interesting things happening with the guitar and bass. It’s a great song to end on because it shows how talented each person in this band really is. It also puts a great finality to the EP as a whole.

It is worthy to note that this EP speaks of anger, sadness, and resentment. This is something I feel most people can relate to and for many reasons. It’s a moving, edgy, and emotionally moving project that the guys should really be proud of. Give it a listen if you haven’t already done so, because in the next year or so this band will be a game changer in the metalcore and hardcore music arena.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.


To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

After 'Extremely Wicked' And 'The Stranger Beside Me,' We Now Understand The Criminal Mind Of Ted Bundy

1 hour and 50 minutes, plus 550 pages later.


Netflix recently released a movie in May called "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile" (2019), based on the life of Ted Bundy from his girlfriend's viewpoint.

In 1980, an author and former Seattle police officer, Ann Rule, published a book about her experience and personal, close friendship with Ted Bundy, called "The Stranger Beside Me."

These two sources together create an explosion of important information we either skim over or ignore about Ted Bundy. Watching this movie and reading this book can really open your eyes to who Ted Bundy really was. Yeah, there are the confession tapes on Netflix, too, but these other things can really tie it all into one big masterpiece of destruction.

I swear, it will blow your mind in different ways you never thought possible.

In the movie, "Extremely Wicked", Zac Efron stars as the infamous Ted Bundy, America's most notorious serial killer. He portrayed the murderer who kidnapped, killed, and raped 30 women or more. Personally, he made a great Ted Bundy, mannerisms and all. Lily Collins stars as Ted's girlfriend who was easily manipulated by Ted and believed that he was innocent for years.

The movie is told in the order that Liz, Ted's girlfriend, remembers.

In the book, "The Stranger Beside Me", Ann Rule writes about Ted Bundy, who used to be her old friend. They met while working at a crisis center in the state of Washington and were close ever since. Like Liz, Ann believed he was innocent and that he was incapable of these horrific crimes.

Ted Bundy had made both Liz and Ann fools. He easily manipulated and lied to both women about many things for years, his murders being "one" of them.

Okay, so we all know that Ted Bundy was absolutely guilty as hell and totally murdered those women. 30 women or more. He literally confessed to that, but researchers and authorities believe that number to be way higher.

But... you must know that the movie and the book tell two different stories that lead to the same ending. That's why it's so intriguing.

At one point, I couldn't stop watching the movie. Then, I bought Ann Rule's book and was completely attached to it. I couldn't put it down.

For me, Ted Bundy is interesting to me. Unlike most young girls today, I don't have a thing for him nor do I think he's cute or hot. I know that he used his charm and looks to lure women into his murderous trap. That's why it's so hard to understand why this movie and book created a new generation of women "falling in love" with Ted Bundy.

GROSS: He sodomized women with objects. He bludgeoned women with objects or his own hands. He was a necrophile. Look those up if you have not a clue of what they mean. That could change your mind about your own feelings for Ted Bundy.

After "Extremely Wicked" and "The Stranger Beside Me", I now understand the criminal mind of Ted Bundy. He was insane, but he was also smart, put together, educated, charming, and lots more. That's why I'm so interested in why his brain was the way it was.

The criminal mind is an interesting topic for me anyway, but for Ted Bundy, it was amazing to learn about.

I highly recommend both the movie and the book I quickly read in two weeks! If you want answers, they are there.
