4.0 out of 5 stars Potential to be great, 12 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Union of Crowns (Audio CD)
The second album (if I'm not mistaken?) from UK band Bury Tomorrow. Personally, I'd only heard about these guys a few months ago and on the strength of the excellent 'Royal Blood' track, decided to buy this album. Essentially BT are a metalcore band, but they are a damn good metalcore band who throw in enough subtle twists and turns to make them have a "sound" they can call their own. When the harsh vocals are in effect, they are very harsh, when the soaring clean vocals hit, boy do they hit....making for many memorable and epic choruses. In fact, if I could pinpoint BT's greatest strength, over the tight musicianship, brilliant guitar melodies, and harsh vocals, it has to be the clean vocals....they don't sound whiney or girly....they are superb. This doesn't get 5 stars from me because some songs, structurally speaking, are lacking and because you can sense a bit of a fight within the sound of this record, obviously these guys wanted something heavy, but at the same time accessible....which is fine....but it doesn't quite click for the entire duration of the listen. If they keep the incredible clean vocals to forge more tremendous choruses, keep the twists and turns coming, and develop their heavier side more....the next album will be a classic!. For me, the highlights on this album are provided by 'Royal Blood', 'The Maiden', 'An Honourable Reign', 'Abdication Of Power', and 'A Curse'. Highly recommended.
