I still don’t understand how these guys haven’t hit the big time yet! The combination of their lyrics and their infectious style leads me to believe their success should have came already. With a sound like a pop-punk version Taking Back Sunday, they have the potential to captivate a wide audience of people. Check out their new video for the song, “Silver Lake”. Even if you don’t like the song, maybe you’d like the video, it’s pretty sick! ALSO, for those of you who did enjoy their music, or at least want to hear more, click the image above to download their free album, “Wilder Child of a Thousand Suns”. I repeat, FOR FREE. Either way, it’s free music people!
First off, We’ve been gone for a month now so I apologize for that!! Moving on… Wow! I don’t even know what to say about this album. Prior to the release of “Time Travel”, I had always been a huge fan of Christofer Drew’s work, so clearly I already had high expectations for this record. Continue reading →
The Devil Wears Prada have really out done themselves with their most recent album entitled “Dead Throne.” Their new album has a very new sound as opposed to their previous albums. If you have been a loyal fan of TDWP through the years you can compare this new sound with a mixture of the Zombie EP and With Roots Above and Branches Below. Mike Hranica’s screams have really evolved throughout the years, this new sound really gives me chills. The passions and the love for the music is really evident in the tediousness and simple professionalism that is apparent in the recording and production of this album. The album is in fact produced by Killswitch Engage’s guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz. This new sound has strayed from the post hardcore and wandered into more of a metalcore sound. They stray from the more melodic choruses into a more strictly metal sound. The great thing about all of this that the album is now streaming online at www.deadthrone.com . The album is scheduled to come out 9-13-11 make sure and support these great guys by going out and buying the album then. They are offering some great pre-order package deals over at tdwp.merchnow.com.
To all of you fans of Never Shout Never, it’s now time to get excited. For his new album, Christofer Drew is releasing a “Limited Edition Time Travel Lithograph + CD Bundle“. So now, not only can you be excited for the new album entitled, “Time Travel”, but you can also be pumped for some extra goodies.
Along with their amazing new album, Incubus has a new video for one of their new songs, “Adolescents”. Some people may consider videos like this to be boring because it’s just a film of the band playing the song, but in this case I disagree. This video is, like the title state, “simple but amazing”. The black and white film style is a beautiful choice for this group because to me it seems to correlate with their ‘mellow sound’. Later in the video there are some slow motion breaks and other dramatic effects that make an amazing video out of what some may call, boring. click for more. ENJOY!
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 largemassive 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.
