Biography

I would like to preface this bio by saying I hate band bio sheets. They are boring, self-congratulatory, tripe, filled with all sorts of overdramatic adjectives and if I never have to read another band bio sheet again, I will die a relatively happy man.

With that said, my name is George Pettit and this is a brief biography of Alexisonfire. Alexisonfire is the product of five kids from ... Read more in Amazon's Alexisonfire Store

Format: Audio CD
The only word to describe Alexisonfire is sublime. I never liked screaming in music, i thought it was shallow and irritating. AOF converted me - Waterwings is one of my favourite songs of all time, and the rest of the album doesnt disappoint. No other sreamo band i have listened to have even touched alexis, save possibly emery's heavier moments. This album has so much depth to it, and so many different levels. The guitars are at times difficult to comprehend, particularly in Counterparts and number them, and Dallas's vocals are incredible (Check out his solo project City and Colour ;) ).
Fan of this type of music or not, I know many people who have broadened their musical horizons because of this band and opened up to new things. Catch them while theyre still hot...

On hearing 44.Caliber Love Letter and Polaroids of Polar Bears, I felt that this band had something original to offer, and the album doesn't disappoint. It's reminiscent of Planes Mistaken For Stars, and Appleseed Cast, with slightly more hardcore vocals. The mellow parts are a joy to listen to and are in perfect contrast with the vocal parts. In this genre, screamed vocals can often get a bit tiring, but not in AIOF, and because of this I believe that they will appeal to a wider audience. Another great Equal Vision release, and I highly recommend it.

this album is great. they successfully mix the screaming/ singing to produce a great sound. The lyrics are clever, and at time quite strange, and they have great guitar, bass and drums. I bought this album after hearing 44. caliber love letter and dagger through the heart of st angeles. i must say that i was slightly dissapointed at first (due to the incredible quality of those two songs), however it has DEFINETLY grown on me, and now i think every song is great.Although not sure about the death metal screaming in one of the songs, but hey cant blame them for trying. Overall i would say definetly get this, it is different and is catchy and sophisticated. Their new album looks like its gonna be amazing too (though maybe less screaming and more singing).

First off, this is a great album. I bought it from hearing '44 caliber love letter' and 'dagger through the heart of st angelis', probably two of the best songs on the album. The vocals are dominated by Georges harsh screams and Dallas comes in at a few key points with the melodic vocals to really set it off. Musically the songs are great with intense riffs, some long intros and bizarre song strucures. The lyrics are often quite random yet still remain powerful and really contribute to the album. This albums very different to their latest release Watch Out! and would appeal to hardcore/screamo/punk fans.

Knowing what we know now about AOF and how their music has evolved over the last 7 or 8 years, this album gives a great insight into what the band were all about in their early days. It's a bit rough around the edges, which I quite like, and there's some real classics here including the incredible Polaroids of Polar Bears and Pulmonary Archery. It's worth paying the extra for this version, as the album artwork - reputedly created by lead vocalist George Pettit himself - is superior to the standard UK release.

The Answer to the title would be ... Yes! This album is awesome and I would recommend any 1 to get it. ''44 Caliber Love Letter'' is a particular favourite - its awesome, its glides and the range of riffs is amazing!

What can I say? You put it on and hear one of the best album intro's ever, it's worth buying just for that. Anyway, Alexisonfire take gorgeous riffs, some aggressive screamy vocals and the odd metalcore noise bit and meld them together perfectly, conjuring the sound that Finch aimed for but missed. This is the best "screamo" (I hate that term) album that you're ever likely to hear. If you're into anything like Funeral For A Friend, Hopesfall, Finch etc, you will love this album.

Format: Audio CD
released in 2002 alexisonfires self titled debut show cased a band that have all the potential to go straight to the top of the pile,with three singers offering both clean and harsh vocals,there is every chance that you will take to this band like meat to a t-rex.

The quality of these songs cant be disputed ,offering moments of sheer aggression with loads of melodies backed up with riffs that iron maiden would dance along too,the clean vocals are a plenty here so dont be scared by the thought of over screaming,alexisonfire know that too much screaming can disguise the beauty of the melodies and chorus' so they dont go straight for the throat and hold onto until you are dead,they will let go and give you a chance to breathe,trust me!

The album is as packed as an expensive christmas hamper with sure fire sing a long anthems such as 44 caliber love letter,counterparts and number them,polaroids of polar bears and the kennedy curse not to single any songs out in particular as they are all good.Its a debut thats very assured as some of the members were 17 upon the recording of this.In time this album has the ability to stand up alongside cave ins until the heart stops and posion the wells the opposite of december as albums of their era in their genre,there is something very special about this album,take note.
