Infest (2014)

EW's GRADE
C-

Details Lead Performance: Papa Roach; Genre: Metal

Papa Roach is yet another band of screaming Mimis with a jones for rockin' rap and lyrics that sound vaguely insurrectionary but do little more than massage the arguably antiestablishment prejudices of mall rats everywhere. Sure, kids will snap their necks to Infest's bruising manifestos like the anticonsumerist ''Between Angels and Insects'' and the nihilistic ''Dead Cell,'' but will it make a whit of difference? Crank it up, dude. C-
