The Sun Will Rise Soon On The False And The Fair

(The End)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 7.5

Right off, I'm liking the production, the huge bashing and crashing cymbals accenting the energetic, screamed vocals, which bring to mind old hardcore crews like SNAPCASE more than anything too metallic. This Texas-based band, made up of people who have spent time in EMPLOYER EMPLOYEE, MADE OUT OF BABIES, and THE SWORD, operate in that increasingly popular realm that combines extreme tech metal skills with prog sensibilities, stoner vibes, hardcore smarts, and a definite potential for crossover potential to some indie fans, despite being completely extreme (the cover art reeks of indie-guy metal irony, unfortunately). And it is extreme, the sounds approaching an approximation of metalcore from when that sound was dangerous (musically, a more complex BURNT BY THE SUN is fair, but with less aggression and more playful prog-stoner leanings). As much as it threatens to become a bit much to handle, those screamed vocals are cool, as is the bass tone, the overall foot-tapping fun of this one, even when the band is navigating labyrinthine riffs and confounding time signatures. 'The Year Of Hands & Neck' adds in some chilling endtime ebbs, to great effect. You know, I smell some second-stage festival appearances on fests that MASTODON is playing first stage at, and opening slots for, say, KYLESA and BARONESS in the future (check the riffing in 'Blaze Some More Hate' and then tell me you don't agree; also, get a load of that tune's fun, frantic drumming while you're there).
