Product Description

Two records into a career, The Butterfly Effect have always been about pushing their progressive sound to the limit, the Australian four-piece have opened up further sonically than ever before. The results are invigorating and cathartic! Final Conversation Of Kings is a bold, expansive and career-defining statement, often fragile but always epic - a comprehensive evolution that builds on their signature style but doesn t lose track of the things that have made The Butterfly Effect one of Australia's favourite bands. Fans expect a hard-driving sound offset by fragile emotions, consummate musicianship and intimate vocals that sweep and soar. None will be disappointed - those aspects have been refined by a group that refuses to compromise, while the band continues to grow as both songwriters and players. Proving they're more than willing to take risks if necessary, Final Conversation Of Kings opens with the band's most ambitious effort yet, the majestic seven-minute masterpiece ´World s On Fire`, which ebbs and flows with sublime subtlety, veering fluidly from a gentle, cascading rhythm into an orgasm of crash and clatter and back. 'That's the longest song we've ever written', Ben explains. 'We're pretty proud of it - the trumpet and the vibraphone in the middle made it a journey'. 'Lyrically, it tells a good story, the vocal melodies are fantastic, and the playing is really cool'. 'I liken it to Radiohead - the way they put songs together'. Final Conversation Of Kings was recorded over five weeks at ´Grove Studios` on the Central Coast in NSW, Australia with acclaimed producer Forrester Savall, who has previously worked with Something For Kate & Karnivool - stands as The Butterfly Effect's crowning achievement!

Format: Audio CD
I purchased this album having only heard their début album Begins Here. I thought Begins Here was a good album, and I had heard from other fans that Final Conversation of Kings was not quite as good as the band has 'mellowed' a little. However, it only took a couple plays of FCOK for me to realise that I was listening what would become my all-time favourite album. There is no weak track to be heard on the album, and I think the flow of the album is one of the best I've ever heard.

The album kicks off with 'Worlds on Fire', a track which can only be described as epic as it takes you on a 7-minute journey through brooding lyrics, weeping guitar licks, big riffs, and even bigger vocals. Most would argue this would be a good way to end the album but I think it's an even better way to start the album; it certainly gives the listener flavours of other songs on the album, adding to the 'flow' I was praising earlier.

Other notable songs include 'Window and the Watcher' with its punchy riff and big chorus; also 'In These Hands' has hard-hitting lyrics, and even harder-hitting guitar work and vocals combination. In fact, In These Hands is not only my personal favourite on the album, but it very quickly became one of my favourite songs ever. Couldn't get it out of my head for weeks!

Overall, I cannot fault this album in any way. Every song has a brilliant balance of lamenting melodies, catchy riffs, beautiful lyrics and perhaps above all, Boge's unforgettable vocal performance. It blows my mind how he switches effortlessly between soft, almost fragile tones to a powerful and gutsy 'boom'. I would usually want to add a small list of other acts that they can be compared to, but I cannot really put them in any existing category. I would have to say that if you are a fan of Karnivool, Birds of Tokyo, Cog etc. then this is going to be a great addition to your seemingly all-Australian collection.

The reason I got this album was I saw one of their tracks off it recommended in Kerrang. I don't normally get anything good out of Kerrang but this time I have! And I am very grateful. I have been craving new music of late and this band definitely fill the gap.

They have a great sound on this album. I cannot compare it to their past releases as I have not heard them. The singer has a very good voice, managing to switch from soft emotional singing to a more hard rock sound. The guitar is fantastic too, eerie and atmospheric on some songs but able to switch effortlessly to harder power riffs when needed.

Stand out songs so far for me are Final Conversation, Worlds on Fire and The Way. They have some of these songs on their Myspace so listen to them before you buy this to see if you like it as I would say those songs seem representative of the album as a whole.

Now who would I liken this band to, tough question to be honest. At times I think they sound a little like Pain of Salvation and I also think they definitely have some Funeral For a Friend in them too - the softer side not the emocore side. They are a soft band, no screaming involved. A hard rock band, at times they sound like Black Stone Cherry too.

Great band. I would recommend them to anyone!

...a work of art. Delicate one second and beautifully dense the next, not a drop spilt at any point.
They should be huge

I cant believe how good this album is. Honestly, dont even think about it, just buy it. If you like Tool, Muse, Karnivool, Live or all of the above, BUY IT...

How this band remain under the radar outside of Australia is a mystery. Their two previous albums are five star quality and there is no change on this offering, not a weak track in sight. Slightly more mellow than Imago but this is rock music as it should be, long may it continue!
