Product Description

After a relentless touring schedule that fund A Wilhelm Scream in far reaches of the developed world with bands like Rise Against, Strung Out and Lagwagon, the band that Alternative Press hailed as the new heirs of the skate punk scene, finally settled down in their second home; Blasting Room studios. Career Suicide represents the third trip to the Bill Stevenson / Jason Livermore well, a well neither dry nor stale. Career Suicide is just as smart, just as anthemic as Mute Print and Ruiner, but this time around A Wilhelm Sceam speeds up their formula to neck-breaking pace. And with a new bass player Brain Robertson, who keeps up with, and even pushes, the manical guitar duo of Reilly-Lavesque.

A Wilhelm Scream have always been an interesting outfit. You would expect scruffy punk-fuelled vocals such as Trevor Reilleys to be accompanied by typical 3 chord structures, however this couldn't be further from the truth. A Wilhelm Scream's instrumentation provides intricacy beyond belief, reminding me of a more punk, more masculine (for want of a better word), Fall Of Troy. It isn't just fiddly guitar work and outrageous (and I do mean outrageous) bass lines that provide the entertainment here though, it's the ridiculously catchy vocal melodies that bounce so effortlessly off of the manic music taking place behind it.

Opener and beautifully titled 'I Wipe My Ass With Showbiz' is a quick blast of old school punk that opens the proceedings nicely, however as soon as 'To 9' kicks in, the direction that this album will be taking us in is obvious. Its off-time drum patterns and insanely fast harmonized guitar runs eventually pave the way for some great technical old school thrash, which then in turn gives way for a huge chorus that stays stuck in the head for long periods thereafter.

This formula repeats itself throughout the album but it never tires because it is executed just so brilliantly. Every song oozes technical and melodic qualities, which are two things that can prove extremely difficult to fuse effectively.

This is simply one of the most exciting records I've heard all year by a band that look to have a deservedly extremely illustrious career ahead of them.

Think of this as a concept album and try not to put the photography in the sleeve put you off. The sound is relentless, like lagwagon, but much more aggressive. These guys are about two steps from hardcore, but they're well produced and have retained a lot of melody and always find the room for a speed metal guitar solo. It sounds like Propagandhi's heavier moments - but if you've just read that and thought, 'who are propagandhi?' Then go and buy Propagandhi's Less Talk, More Rock and come back if you like it.

A hardcore CD that is worth repeated listening 25 Oct. 2007
By Mby555 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A Wilhelm Scream writes arguably the most complex songs, musically and lyrically, of any punk band. On "Career Suicide," their 3rd CD since changing their name from Smackin' Isaiah, the song "The Horse" alone has more than a dozen distinct parts, and features a metaphor extended to lengths one rarely sees outside of a literary journal.

But that doesn't mean they sacrifice melody or memorable lyrics. Just when you think they're about to fall off the cliff of musical cohesion, they'll break out a thundering four-chord progression and fire off lines that capture a feeling in an unforgettable way.

For returning fans, "These Mean Streets" and "Die While Were Young" are perhaps the most straightforward rock songs the band has ever recorded. "The Horse" (which features some of the best bass playing you'll hear anywhere), "Get Mad..." and "We Built This City! (On Debts and Booze)" are classic AWS tour de forces. And "5 to 9" and "Jaws 3, People 0" are two of their most experimental songs, featuring trademark unusual melodies and frequent time-signature shifts.

For those not familiar with A Wilhelm Scream, listening to them at first may be a bit jarring. If it's not two dischordant sections juxtaposed that surprise, it may be lines such as "Still I spill out razors from my bitter eyes."

But unlike few bands who play at their volume, A Wilhelm Scream holds up to multiple listenings. Thanks to quality prodution from the Blasting Room, this CD has more power in the guitars than their previous ones, which provides additional oomph to the art.

This CD is not for everyone. But if you're looking for something with maximum depth that maintains the power and attitude of punk rock, "Career Suicide" may be the best CD you purchase this year.

WOW 11 Oct. 2007
By Kevin Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is rip roaring fast!! That's the best way to describe it! This band is clearly improving with each new album, yet they have stuck to their familiar sound, which is great! Their new bassist is killer! The recording quality is top notch, there are a few dual bass and guitar solo's where you can hear each instrument equally clear at the same time!

This is clearly one of the best albums of the year, maybe number one!
Smart, technical, catchy, brutal, damn fine pop punk. 16 Feb. 2008
By Nathan Blaney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Career Suicide? Anything but. You like your punk rock fast and loud? Well, this album was written with you in mind! A Wilhelm Scream blaze through one song after another here, and by the time the 13th and final track comes to an end, the listener will have been pummeled, pounded, and brutalized by the 35 minute assault. Melding the SoCal punk of bands such as Pennywise and Strung Out with a bit of H20 and layering in a good deal of technical guitar work (see "These Dead Streets"), these guys have created a great sound that - while owing a lot to their influences - isn't purely derivative: it stands strongly on its own, to say the least. And the best part of Career Suicide? It's powerful enough to appeal to the hardest of gruff punk fans yet melodic and accessible enough to grab the attention of those who demand that their music be of the foot tapping, sing-along variety (see "Check Request Denied"). In fact, I can almost hear this running right alongside Paramore and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus on the radio. Really. A Wilhelm Scream have got something good here: let's hope the powers that be see to it that their success continues. In fact, you should help: go buy this album immediately. You won't be sorry!
best album of 2007 14 May 2008
By Jeremiah J. Dodd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
wow, i don't even know where to start.

this is one of the four of five best albums of the last decade. incredibly aggressive and technical, but also surprisingly catchy. lyrics are a little juvenile at times, but the whole Horse vs. Jockey (IE the horse does all the hard work and the jockey takes all the credit) theme portrayed throughout the album is brilliant.

this does not have as much "heart" as Mute Print and is not quite as menacing as Ruiner, but the hooks, riffs, breakdowns and ridiculous speed put it well ahead of the other two albums. i guess if i had to describe it, i would say "extremely technical melodic-hardcore."

i listen to this constantly and have at one time or another loved every song on it. best songs are "We Built This City," "Career Suicide," "Die While Were Young" and "Get Mad You Son of a Bitch!"
