Biography

A full decade since their formation, Orange County, California’s Atreyu are just as subversive, unrelenting and unpredictable as they were when they first started. Congregation Of The Damned, their fifth album, is a testament to the inexhaustible power of heavy music and the unquenchable flame of five musicians determined to build a distinct sonic landscape entirely on their own terms. ...

Product Description

In a musical environment that values style at least as much as substance, many bands embrace one over the other, or attempt to walk a tightrope between excessive showiness and serious, honest song craft. Atreyu have firmly established themselves on the side of solid songwriting, tight arrangements and musicianship with their previous albums, Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisses and The Curse. A Death-Grip on Yesterday takes their dedication to new heights with great metallic rock songs, mind-boggling guitar runs and the dynamic brutality they are known for. The album was produced in collaboration with Josh Abraham, known for his work with Velvet Revolver, Korn and Staind; it shows off Atreyu's trademark incendiary guitars and soaring choruses with a thunderous rhythm section framing each track. Lyrically, Atreyu comes out swinging, with solid blows against hypocrisy, betrayal and corruption.

To put it simply, this album overwhelmed me
The lyrics, as always from Atreyu are clever, beautiful and perfectly balanced against the power of both the screaming as well as the amazing backing of the rest of the band.
Some people commented that this album was a watered down version of The first album, or even more "poppy" than the second. That is a complete lie. It's true this isn't like the first or second album, but Atreyu continue to push themselves, to improve and make something new. If you want a simmilar sound to the first or second albums go buy one of the hundreds of albums trying to imitate what Atreyu did two albums ago. If you want something special buy this.
There is one thing though that,didn't so much dissapoint me, but annoyed me slightly and that is the length of the c.d and the number of tracks. having only 9 tracks is fine (opeth did it with 8, and it was an incredible album) but opeth had tracks ranging for 4 to 10 minutes. No song is anywhere near that time scale. That said, it's better to have 9 consistantly quality tracks than a few extra filler tracks.
Anyway, I LOVED this album, and I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
SO GO BUY IT!

atreyu are a band that can be deemed metalcore but they are also a band that excel at it,they have never failed to deliver but surely the pressure was on to deliver after the brilliance of the curse and with a death grip on yesterday we can all sleep easier knowing that the boys have done it again.

what becomes clear after the first listen is that the band have thrown in more melodies and clean vocals than ever before,helped by the fact that alex is now doing clean vocals as well as brandon,the theft is a song that will shock as its pretty much a ballad with backing vocals that wouldnt be lost on a beach boys album,the album opens like a madman with creature which has a fury building up throughout,shameful is a cracker as well as is our sick story,exs and ohs is the obvious single and is a strong song,the album closes with untitled finale which is soaring and full of band chants,the album clocks in at under 35 minutes and only has nine songs and the band has stated that in previous albums there was always filler and this is all killer,i dont agree that in their previous albums that there was filler,but i do agree that this is all killer,very strong indeed and very close to five stars

I don't quite understand where people are getting this "the curse part 2" thing from, this album sounds nothing like the curse, it's alot more refined and rockish whereas the curse seemed to be an attempt at breaking into the metalcore genre.

This band had a great style, but they've definately matured as a band and as artists, and this album is beautiful the whole way through. With stand out tracks like "Our Sick Story" and "Ex's and Oh's", I honestly cannot find a fault in this albums musical talent or songwriting.

This is becoming a somewhat crowded genre, but Atreyu are one of the best examples out there. The death metal bits are furious, the riffing is really great in places, and the solos are nifty too. It's generally more melodic than the last record, but that's something I need in a heavy band - a counterpoint to the agression. That said, it definitely isn't 'easy listening' and isn't going to win them any real mainstream appreciation (in the UK anyway) - too busy with another limp indie rock band, I expect.
'Ex's and Oh's' and 'Untitled Finale' ("You put a bullet in my head, turned black thoughts to red, this could all end in tragedy" should give you an idea of the dark but nicely poetic lyrics) are probably my favourite tracks on here, but there isn't a clunker on it. It's pretty short (33 minutes in all), but remains exciting throughout as a result.

A lot of people that have listened to this album with me have dismissed it at listening to a few of the songs,
believe me this album is amazing, one song wont stand out like the curse, whereas Right side of the Bed grabbed everyone as an amazing song.
the more you listen to this album the more u realise how amazing and beautiful it is and is a even more intelligent step up from the curse.
Exs and Ohs is the first single, however every song is equally good or even better to this.
