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. ...

I loved Death Grip on Yesterday... but i love this album even more. Every single song stands out as brilliant. Each day you'll be humming a different one in your head. If you put it in your cars CD player, you cannot help but turn the volume up to near full and bash the steering wheel.
"Honor" is by far my most favourite song, but followed closely by "Lose It". For pure fun factor, "Blow" is awesome. You'll find yourself really shouting those words out loud with friends.

When you compare this album with, lets say, Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisses, you'll barely recognise them as the same band. This is a good thing. Atreyu's sound has matured, they have a better mix of scream and vocals, and the songs are just far more catchy and better written.

Best album i have bought all year =)

Atreyus fourth album came as quite a shock to their fans and most embraced their evolution into a more alternative rock group,i certainly was shocked at this new more polished commercial sound but this album has grown on me,it certainly is catchy at times and almost anthemic,lead screamer,alex,has now become more of a singer,while drummer/singer brandon retains his right to sing the catchy choruses.
The band display more influences on this album,i certainly hear motley crue on the song 'blow',but sadly i also hear busted or mcfly,(they couldnt be influences) on the song 'falling down',it really is very watery yet it is catchy,darn.
They even flex the country twang on the albums closer and self titled track,now i know where avenged sevenfold got the influence for their own country song 'dear God'.
Anyway,this album doesnt pack a punch but it does have some really good songs,the initial disappointment has give way to a satisfaction with the album but at the same time there is the odd filler moment,worth a listen i would imagine.

I have been a hardcore Atreyu fan for years. The first song i heard was 'Tulips Are Better'. An amazing song. Since then i now own both EP's, and all the albums. The first album, 'Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisses', was a huge step up just from their two EP's, a lot more singing with a lot more catchier tunes. 'The Curse' is by far my favourite album of them all with the extremely popular 'Crimson' and 'Right Side Of The Bed', although my personal favourite is 'You Eclipsed By Me', it held a much more personal feel to me. However, 'A Deathgrip On Yesterday'... was, as an overall album, terrible. It had standalone tracks that were brilliant, such as 'Shameful' and 'My Fork In The Road(Your Knife In My Back)'.
History lessons over, the new album, has progressed so much that not only do they sound like a new band with just a hint of the old, but it is so good that you just can't bring yourself to pull the CD out of the stereo. Even the cover of 'Epic' (and i hated the original) is done uniquely and with such a sound of originality, no-one could blame you for thinking it was their song. The best songs on this album are 'Doomsday', 'Honor', 'When Two Are One', and 'Slow Burn' - my favourite off the album. For me, i'm not too keen on 'Blow', i don't know why, just not too keen on it really.
As a closing point, if you're thinking about buying this album, it's almost definately worth investing in, a brilliant buy. Especially off Amazon, as you can get the enhanced versions with either 'Clean Sheets' or 'Epic'. If you love Atreyu, don't be afraid, this is just the next step in the evolution of the band, and what a huge leap forwards it is.

After their last album disappointing me greatly, I found myself rather hesitant over this release. After the success of 'The Curse' and 'Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses' I was wondering if they could ever live up to those albums again and produce something of that quality.

Upon first listening to 'Lead Sails' I immediately noticed the slight change of sound. The music is Atreyu through and through only they have lost most of the screamed vocals, they have opted for a clean sound on the whole. It still provides epic listening.

The opening riff of Doomsday is typical Atreyu and has you going from the very first beat. This is possibly one of the finest songs of their career with great guitar work and fantastic vocal work in the verses with a gigantic chorus. This sets up the album beautifully and lets you know you're in for a treat!

The next few songs batter away with great intensity making you ponder the question 'Who needs screaming anyway?'...they sound so great without it! Tracks such as 'Honor' and 'Becoming The Bull' rage away with choruses that you can't help but yell along to! Ateryu are also capable of showing they can vary their sound also. The penultimate track, 'Blow', has a southern rock feel to it. This is pulled off incredibly well and leads into the mellow closing track nicely for the final 'lighters in air' moment.

This album is a fine showcase of everything that is good about rock and metal at this time. Atreyu were brave and stepped out of their circle ever so slightly and have pulled it off with great effect. As a fan of all of their old music I would recommend this to anyone who liked previous Atreyu releases and fans of rock and metal in general.
