Narrows – New Distances Album Review

I’ll admit right off the bat that this might not be the most unbiased review. As a massive fan of the heavy monstrosity that was Botch, any CD with a sticker that says for fan of Botch or any band featuring ex-members of Botch will find its way into my rotation almost immediately. Same goes...Read...

Oceana – Birtheater Album Review

For all intents and purposes, I should like Oceana. For their new record, Birtheater, they’ve come through with a much more polished and well-crafted collection of songs. It’s definitely something that deserves play on modern rock radio. That being said, the lack of any of the raw energy from their live performance or previous recordings...Read...

Thursday – Common Existence Album Review

There are few bands from the 2001-2003 screamo explosion that have lasted as well and as long as Thursday has. While some bands (Finch, Glasseater) broke up or reformed, others such as Thrice and Senses Fail have altered their sounds dramatically to stay as relevant as possible. Thursday has managed to find a fit between...Read...

Victorian Halls – Self-Titled Album Review

It’s impossible for me to listen to Victorian Halls without drawing some conclusions between them and one of my favorite bands, Neon Blonde — a pretty much defunct side project comprised of former Blood Brothers members, Johnny Whitney and Mark Gajadhar. Both bands share screeching, otherworldly vocals and erratic, wild song structures, but as a...Read...

To The Waves – Self-Titled Album Review

Recently, essayist Eric Grubbs wrote a book entitled POST: A Book About the Influence of Post-Hardcore 1985-2008. In the book, Grubbs profiles several bands, including genre stalwarts like At the Drive-In, Jawbox, Fugazi and Sunny Day Real Estate. If that book were to continue, Seattle/Tacoma-based To the Waves would be a perfect case study for...Read...

Confide – Shout The Truth Album Review

I will be perfectly honest and admit to falling into quick judgment before really giving a go at this band. Confide have been one of those groups of guys that I have heard about here and there, but I never really paid close attention to their progress and wrote them off as an Underoath rip-off....Read...

Eyes Set To Kill – Reach Album Review

Eyes Set to Kill have popped up on my radar several times as they have been the new “it” band, hopping from tour to tour over the passed year with acts of various rock genres. In their most recent release, Reach, this Tempe, Arizona band is a post-hardcore/indie copulation that is subtly unique in comparison...Read...
