Pain Is A Warning is exactly everything you would not expect from Today Is The Day. Steve Austin is a name that embodies respect - and rightfully so. He’s the mastermind behind Today Is The Day, a legendary noisecore outfit in which Austin is the only original member left. He’s one of the most important musicians in extreme music, and the albums he released with TITD in the nineties are often considered legendary. There is no variation to be found here. The album is at least 15 minutes too long for its own good (and it’s only 44 minutes long to begin with), and outside of the first couple of tracks, not a single riff, vocal line or drum fill stands out. It feels like Austin just phoned it in and never really tried. The last couple of TITD albums certainly haven’t reached the quality the band is known for, but this is far worse than you could’ve hoped for from a man like Austin.
