Biography

We live in uncertain times. Technology has undoubtedly enhanced our existence, but it has also made us vulnerable to government interference, sensory overload and identity theft. Generally this isn’t the type of subject matter breached by hardcore bands, but then again Buffalo, New York’s Every Time I Die have never been a typical hardcore act. In fact for over a decade the band ... Read more in Amazon's Every Time I Die Store

Product Description

Product Description

Vinyl LP pressing includes bonus tracks. 2012 album from Buffalo, NY's brutal metallic Punk ensemble. Ex Lives was produced by the renowned Joe Barresi (Tool, The Melvins, Queens of the Stone Age) and offers an unrelenting onslaught of ingeniously composed and furiously executed cathartic Hardcore. Ex Lives sees Every Time I Die further tempering their aggression while experimenting with new instrumentation.

BBC Review

It’s something that Josh Homme has spoken about with Queens of the Stone Age: music that’s hard enough for guys, but sweet enough for their girlfriends. That’s what Every Time I Die have perfected with Ex Lives, the Buffalo-founded band’s sixth album. They are not only stalwarts of the heavy music scene today, but they’re also as seminal as QOTSA. They have become a band that all other bands around them aspire to be like.

From the balance of sweet-as-honeysuckle melodies and harsh, crunching rasps to the inventive and challenging lyrics, there is much to think about when listening to Ex Lives. The graphical wordplay that frontman Keith Buckley uses is always stunning, but it’s amusing and devilish in equal measure. The repeated line "When the iron sharpens the iron," from opening song Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space, is inspired by the Book of Proverbs – yep, it comes straight from the Bible. But Buckley’s not a religious man; far from it, in fact, as he points out later in Drag King and I Suck (Blood). The use of such imagery in his lyrics, however, is an incredibly powerful thing, despite his personal stance on religion being far from positive.

Something else Buckley probably wouldn’t like is that dating television advert doing the rounds right now, the one with a chap playing his ukulele. Said lovesick sort could take a tip from the ETID singer’s book – swap the uke for the banjo found in Partying Is Such Sweet Sorrow, get some better lines and he might have this reviewer jumping across the tracks to listen to another line of witty lyrical brilliance. Well, thinking about it, at least.

Revival Mode, the song from which this album’s title is taken, is a master-class in melodic production. With piano tinkling through every important moment, it’s a vaudeville jazz hands extravaganza – as much as a rock song can be, anyway. The dirty, meandering solo from Danzig guitarist John Christ is the sole cameo on Ex Lives – but ETID don’t need any illustrious friends on their albums any more. They’re the main attraction, and have been for some years now.

As with so many other bands, Every Time I Die are still heralded by many for a past album, in their case 2003’s second set, Hot Damn! – but Ex Lives is guaranteed to change a few minds as to what stands out as their finest collection. This is a wholly unholy album. Revel in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars ETID have done it again. 7 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
I had high expectations for this album and after the first listen I can happily say all my expectations have been surpassed. From start to finish every song is a winner. Lyrically and vocally Keith is on point as always, Andy and Jordan's riffs just sound immense and Ryan's drumming is exceptional. Everything about this album is amazing, I honestly can't praise it enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb sixth album from Buffalo's finest 21 Aug 2012
By Matt Pucci VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Every Time I Die is a band you just gotta love. Fronted by a charismatic former school teacher, these muscle-bound New Yorkers deal in hi-octane punk 'n' roll that falls just the right side of the fence dividing wholly inaccessible noise and something a bit special. They also feature a guitarist named Andy Williams, who looks like an old-school circus strongman, which in my book is reason enough to check `em out.

After the patchy New Junk Aesthetic, they're back with a much more focused, incisive slab of metallic hardcore. Indeed, this could be their best album to date, as Ex Lives brings together all the best bits this band has to offer in one brutal package: pulverising riffs, breakneck-speed rhythms, and the honesty and witty invention of front-man Keith Buckley's lyrics. In the case of the latter, you'll have to listen carefully as there's very little breathing space throughout the 45 minutes or so playing time of this disc; personally, I recommend sitting down with a cold beer and the liner notes to fully appreciate the genius of Buckley's wordsmithery. "Thanks Lord, but I don't need any more poor advice..." he sings on 'Revival Mode', the album's stand-out track, and it's fairly safe to say that there can't be too many bands on the Warped Tour circuit that quote John Keats, as Buckley does during the closing bars of the same song. Meanwhile, the opening lines to 'Partying is Such Sweet Sorrow' ("At the bottom of the first drink, I found my nerve/At the bottom of the second, I found the third...") are accompanied by some banjo-playing so mean that it just makes you wanna slap your thigh and shout "Yee-haw!"

The only lamentable aspect of this record - and indeed of the band's modus operandi in general - is that they don't open things up often enough.
