Biography

Plenty of bands like to yammer on about how their newest record is a “return to their roots,” as if some undiscovered brilliance is to be found and resurrected on early demos and basement jam sessions. But the in case of ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead (or Trail of Dead from here on out, because who really wants to type all that over and over), a return to form could ...

Product Description

...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of - Madonna

Amazon.co.uk

Sonic Youth don't sound like this any more. Someone else has to carry the anger, feed the sonic explosion with layers of molten guitars. You could compare the throbbing, distorted, beautiful noise that is this Austin TX's band second album to NYC's finest circa Evol, but that'd be to miss the point. Like comparing someone gracefully fading into the shadows with someone vibrantly, passionately alive. Also, And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead clearly draw on the impassioned energy of emo-core counterparts like Fugazi and Today Is The Day. "Mistakes And Regrets" is full-throttle millennial rock, absolutely in your face--enervating, inspiring. As is virtually the whole of Madonna. In between all the sonic overload, however, there are moments of surprising subtlety and insecurity ("Claire De Lune", the tormented "A Perfect Teenhood"). Sonic Youth moved on long ago. Time to celebrate the new generation of noise terrorists. --Everett True

Heard 'Source Tags & Codes'? Want to hear more? Well buy this, ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead's second album. It rocks more than 'Source Tags...' where it means too, and is more subtle and heartfelt than their first, eponimous album where necessary.
The Rawk? Look for 'Mistakes and Regrets', 'Totally Natural' and 'Perfect Teenhood'. Melodious and subtle?: 'Claire de Lune', ' The Day the Air Turned Blue' and 'Aged Dolls'. Everything else falls exactly half way between the two. It's been on my stereo since it was released, and every record I've listened to inbetween (Rival Schools, Flaming Lips, Frank Black, PJ Harvey, Royksopp, The Ghost etc etc) has confirmed my beleif that 'Madonna' is a masterpiece -- not only of 'emo' but modern rock in all its forms.
Buy this album and believe.

One (1) copy of 'In the Flat Field' by Bauhaus, six (6) huge racks of effects pedals, a smattering of Romantic poetry, a pinch of salt, half a pound of insane punk rock attitude, and five (5) men who know what they like, aren't afraid to rock out, know (oh yes) how to use a drumkit, and could eat almost any other band on the planet except maybe At The Drive-In or QOTSA. In the oven, gas mark 1000000 for a sharp, acrid burst of insanely good fun and post-goth skulduggery. Yes!

It was to be expected. The debut record harboured little flashes of brilliance that if used in the right way could turn something very good into something exceptional. The Texan quartet had but to pull the right strings and balance out some irregularities in their style. They have gone further than that, almost completely reinventing themselves in less than two years to become one of the finest modern bands on the planet. "Madonna" is a work of art, in so many ways.

Where do I start? I'll start at the beginning. The art work (done by Conrad Keely) in the cd sleeve is very very nice. People who say artwork is dead: it clearly isn't. Not that it affects how the album sounds, it just makes it stand out even more. The affection and love in everything here is overwhelming.

First track, the intro, is called "And You Will Know Them..." is just a mixed up spoken word "And You Will Know Them By The Trail Of DEAD, DEAD, DEAD, DEAD, Dead, dead..." which then launches blissfully into..

"Mistakes and Regrets" is a very important song, and it was also the first single. It starts off with soft, lush guitars and the percussion builds up into a spoken intro, before bouncing along almost poppily into an emotional song almost instantly better than anything on the debut album.

"Totally Natural" is even better. It's raw, angry and very very loud. There's the touch of overdistortion and the less-than-perfect guitar work, which if it were anyone else would seem unprofessional, but it only endears them to me more.

"Aged Dolls" is in some ways the centrepiece to the album, being the longest and most complex. Deeply layered and tense, it's probably the most unique tracks on the album.

Recently, the term 'punk' has been commandeered by US acts such as Green Day, The Offspring etc, who's main attribute seems to be stupidity in plentiful amounts. ...Trail of Dead are here to blow them out of the water with their powerful, intelligent, nihilistic music. They condense the spirit of Mid period Sonic Youth (EVOL, Sister, DN) and The Who, and play with phenomenal passion, to create a record which will engage your heart and head. I hope to see them live when they come to the UK, as I imagine it will be brilliant in a live format.

There's a moment in 'Sigh Your Children', the last official track where the singer repeats the line 'Out the Door' several times to a barrage of crashing drums. You know what is going 'out the door' is something lamented and important but at one point it seems as if he will be locked in this timewarp forever; this then is the world of ... trail of dead. Their album 'Madonna' is a study in exhuming your most twisted and intense emotions in the fasted and most powerful manner, the results are conclusive. Self-pity and wallowing in pain? No time for that when you've got guitars to abuse and a drummer who is the missing link to Keith Moon. Sonic Youth is the most obvious reference but imagine tender Pavement-esque harmonies put through 1 million volts of distortion and a blender ... i think they actually use one! 'Claire de Lune' is one example, with its fire and brimstone splutter over broken promises. Maybe they should promise their instruments more respect!

This is rock n'roll in its most primal sense. These bastard children of The MC5 power through incendiary tracks with relentless energy as if their last bottle of whiskey depended on it. The Trail of Dead are from Texas and like the infamous outlaws that made this state, they live by their own rules and they want you to adhere. This is seminal stuff, from the accusations (Mark David Chapman) to the bitter ballads of deceit (Clair de Lune), Trail of Dead belong to a land full of failures and anguish. With infectious guitar hooks and vocals that owe as much to The Beatles as to the Cramps, you are tempted to cross the river just for a peek. Trust me, once you're there, you never want to go back......Welcome to their kingdom, the kingdom of the dead, where the myth of devious raunchy rock n' roll lives on....
