Flaw Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Flaw is an American nu metal band from Louisville, Kentucky. The band was formed by guitarist Jason Daunt in 1996. After a string of rough independent recordings in the 1990s, the band signed to Republic and Universal Music Group and released two major-label albums, Through the Eyes in 2001 and Endangered Species in 2004. Breakups, line-up changes, and internal strife plagued the band for the rest of the decade, though from 2015 to 2017, the band reformed with three of their core members to tour and write music. The band released their third studio album, Divided We Fall, on August 19, 2016. Their latest album, Vol IV: Because of the Brave, was released on July 19, 2019. The band's lineup frequently shifts; lead vocalist Chris Volz is the only constant member.

Back in September VINCE NEILSTEIN reported for METAL SUCKS website about FLAW plagiarism over a Youtube song: When down-and-out nu-metal act Flaw was accused of plagiarizing a song from metal YouTuber Douglas Patrick a couple of weeks ago — a blatant ripoff that easily passes the pedestrian ear test — the band’s vocalist, Christopher Volz, issued an apology saying that the unnamed member of the band who brought in that song idea would be dealt with, that he reached out to Patrick to make amends, and that he was really quite torn up and embarrassed about the whole thing. And now, lo and behold, that exact revelation has come to pass. The PRP has sleuthed out that “Persistence,” another track from Flaw’s most recent album, Vol. IV Because Of The Brave, wholly borrows multiple sections of Patrick’s song “KoЯn style_Nu Metal/Rap Metal/Beat Instrumental 22.” You can listen to both below; the plagiarism is obvious. I’m not aware of the power structure in Flaw — who owns the rights to the band’s name, who calls the shots, etc. — but the member who committed such blatant thievery should be publicly called out by the rest of the band and relieved of his duties immediately. Anything short of that would be massively disrespectful to music creators everywhere. As for the lawsuit, I hope Patrick takes that fucking goon for every penny he’s got. It’s also worth noting that I would be shocked if there aren’t even more examples of this kind of plagiarism on Flaw’s most recent album, and perhaps back catalog, too. The unnamed member is surely quaking in his boots at the moment and likely coming up with lame excuses he’s gonna have to use in court.
