Dubstep Head Bangin' Goth Rockers
"I Am My Reason" could be said to belong to a category of music once inhabited by old pop-punk groups like Evanescence and Linkin Park; using a mixture of heavy digital effects, builds, breaks, drops, distortion, and fist-pumping anthem vocals to create a full and dynamic sound. Why Oh Why?, however, goes a bit farther creatively, drawing on more modern EDM subgenres like dubstep to add further oomph to its stadium-style lyrical hooks. The producer obviously has a wide variety of sounds at his or her fingertips, and uses them elegantly, all the way up to the soft music box sample at the song's dramatic conclusion. This is a song I would have totally rocked out to back in my earlier years, and would go great with black eyeliner and spike necklaces.
