This Pop/Screamo duo is back with their third full-length record entitled, “Hell Is What You Make It”. Being known for their ‘hardcore’ mixed with techno/dance style, Breathe Carolina continues this image of being the rockers you can dance to. In addition, this album introduces some dub-step to their recorded music, just as they have started using some during their shows. One of these ‘dub-step songs’ that I enjoy on this album is, “Chemicals”, “Get Off Easy”, and “Edge of Heaven”. Although BC is known for their dance music style, this album raises the bar when it comes to a dance-factor. For example, when I listen to some of these songs, most of my focus is on the background music, rather than the words of the songs. Songs that make me feel this way are, “Sweat It Out” and “Blackout”. “Blackout” is currently out on iTunes for a free download, click here. The music on this disk is almost to the point where I want to call it experimental, simply because the techno beats sound so odd when compared to the norm. However, this album does disappoint me in some instances. Their appears to be a
large massive loss of rock/screamo in these songs. BUT, on the other hand again, the songs that do have some screaming/rock do not disappoint at all! The songs that are most recognizable of having screaming are, “Wooly” and “Lauren’s Song”. Besides these, the screaming is usually just in the background and can barely be heard under the synths of the techno. It may be cliché to some for me to say this, but it almost sounds like they are trying to become a part of the mainstream. The only credit I can give them is they are doing it in the way that they want to have their own sound in the mainstream. Yes, confusing I know. They sound like contradicting sentences, but no. Just think about it. Overall I think this is decent/pretty good album, but as a LONG time Breathe Carolina fan, I am quite disappointed.

While browsing this website I came across a song that I instantly fell in love with. This song is, “Ume”, by a band that goes by the name: “Emerald Park”.
