The Christian references on Showbread's No Sir, Nihilism Is Not Practical aren't quite as subliminal as what you'll find on other Tooth & Nail releases; for one thing, they actually mention Jesus Christ by name instead of merely hinting. But even so, this is not an album that goes out of its way to exclude or alienate non-Christian listeners - far from it. To put it bluntly, No Sir, Nihilism Is Not Practical is a long way from a Jerry Falwell sermon.
Upon its release, the album ignited a controversy among fans of Showbread's previous record, "No Sir, Nihilism Is Not Practical. The songs containing less of a "spastic" sound and less screaming vocals left fans of the hardcore music genre disappointed. Other Showbread fans maintain that it is their best work to date. Oh! Emetophobia! was first performed at the Underground Cafe in Roseville, California sometime in March 2006.
Digging a bit more into their back catalogue, I discovered songs from No Sir, Nihilism is not Practical, an album that Revolver Magazine had dubbed "Screamo Album of the Year" (that year was 2004). If you know anything about Showbread, you know that they're notorious for dramatically changing musical style album to album. They do this for several reasons; the easy one being that they're not interested in writing the same album twice (how many times have you heard a band say that") - and boy do they take that notion seriously
Showbread is such a great band that makes great music. If you like good music then this is a good album to have. While Showbread screams, songs like "Matthias Replaces Judas" and "The Missing Wife" offer a soft blend between acoustic and soft rock, they hit it hard with songs like "Stabbing Art to Death" and "If You Like Me Check Yes, and if You Don't I'll Die" but with such sensational lyrics and extreme musical talent, there's not need to fear of. the rock band gone too far when it comes to Showbread.
Showbread's final album, Showbread Is Showdead, was released on January 8, 2016, with the original lineup from No Sir, Nihilism is Not Practical. Along with the album release, Showbread also released a documentary entitled The Music Is Dead and the Cancer movie.
