Dustin has a very good voice, both singing and the shouting. The lyrics are very meaningful, without resorting to swearing at any point during the album. If you are a swearing freak, then go and listen to Limp Bizkit or something because Thrice won't be for you. Thrice will be for you if you appreciate clever music.
Teppei does some amazing riffs and plays some beautiful pieces of guitar. Riley is a fantastic drummer, certainly not plain, but not over the top either and Eddie does his job nicely as a bassist. As a group, they work fantastically together.
Songs like "Deadbolt", "Kill Me Quickly", "The Beltsville Crucible" and "To Awake And Avenge The Dead," are fantastic and deserve to be in any music lovers collection. This music isn't easy going, but it is fantastic. It's my favourite album, and if your tastes are in this section of the rock market, then it will quite possibly become yours also.
The sound quality is also very good, something you don't ALWAYS recieve from underground record labels like SUB CITY but on "The Illusion Of Safety" the sound quality definately delivers.
Do your ears a favour and go and buy now! >_<
This record is unbelievable throughout from start to finish and has some tracks that truly blow your mind like deadbolt, see you in the shallows, to awake and avenge the dead etc. in my opinion dustins vocals and teppei's awsome riffs make this band one of the best, largely unknown bands i have ever heard.
My favourite songs on the album were, in no particular order:
- Deadbolt - Very fast, with the greatest intro to a song I've ever heard.
- Betrayal is a symptom - This is just a generally great song and the amazing guitars in the middle only make it better.
- In years to come - Superb lyrics here; "I want to take the bullet, the one aimed straight for your heart, I want to meet the wolves halfway and let them tear me apart".
- The Red Death - Superb chorus. Superb song.
Honestly, buy it now.
