This album will spawn new life for all ye who dare enter,
This review is from: Sing The Sorrow (Audio CD)When you're playing a style of music that doesn't really fit anywhere, you run a risk. You're challenging people to leave their niche, to leave their predetermined ideas of what they're supposed to like. Luckily, we have a lot of people who just focus on the music and appreciate us for what we are. So we get fans from all different genres of music, the jocks, the spooky kids, skaters, college kids, punk rockers, hardcore kids, metal kids, all that" – Davey Havok
Ambience. Boom. An Echo. Ambience. Boom. Echo. Boom. Echo. Boom. Echo. Synth Tune Kicks In. Boom, Drums, chanting, bells chime and the gothic plea cries out ‘Nothing From Nowhere I’m No One At All, Radiate, Recognise one silent call as we all form one dark flame… INCINERATE. Love your hate, your faith lost. You are now one of us’.
Walked away, heard them say
It's hard to notice gleaming from the sky
You... walked away, heard them say
All the cracks will lead right to me
As I... walked away, heard them say
"Poisoned hearts will never change"
This is a song, which is both downbeat but beautiful, slow yet catchy. Once again not for the narrow-minded mainstreamers, but definitely an amazing song.
The final track on the album ‘…but home is nowhere’, which is a good note to end it on, if a little disappointing in comparison to the rest of the album (but is improved on fantastically by the hidden 10 minute bonus track ‘this Time Imperfect’). However if you are lucky enough to live in the UK you find yourself with two more tracks, ‘Synthesthesia’ and ‘Now The World’. Both of which once again raise the standard of modern music even higher. In fact, everything about this album raises the standards. It is very much a certain type of music and not for everyone to adore, but it is an album which a hater of guitar music can listen to and say ‘Well that wasn’t as bad as a thought’. Clearly, this is an album that deserves to be in many more HI-FI’s shelves than it has been on since it’s release in March 2003, and if you’ve never heard these guys before, you will not be disappointed, even for having to part with £15, in fact, I truly believe that it is the best £15 I have ever spent. In fact, I would have gladly paid more. I would have traded every other CD I own just to sing the sorrows along with Davey, Jade, Hunter and Adam. Lost, confused, bored even? Buy this Album.
