  • Envy – From Here To Eternity

    bitrate: 128 kBits/s
    genre: Screamo/Hardcore
    country: Japan
    notes: Envy is a screamo/hardcore/post-rock band from Japan. I’m sure they need no introduction on this site. I was surprised to see that this album wasn’t uploaded to this site before. It was recorded very early in their career, before they developed their signature post-rock sound. It’s much more of a straight forward screamo/hardcore album but still amazing. This is in honor of their U.S.A. tour with Touche Amore and friends (there will also be a Japan tour after) and in anticipation of their new release, Recitation. Check the myspace for dates if you’re in the states because Envy is definitely an experience to be had.

    notes: I just had to post this thing, simply because it really stuck in my player when I first heard this band. Completely angry and chaotic mix of screamo, hardcore, noise and other pissed-off shit, Throats throw quite a punch. I could only imagine experiencing this live…

  • While You Wait – Release review and download
    By on January 19th, 2010 | 104 Comments104 Comments Comments

    Usually, I’m not atracted to hardcore very much. Not that I don’t like it, it’s just that, in my honest opinion, most of the bands are kinda copy/paste. All too similar. But then, there are bands such as “While You Wait”.
    How I got into this band? Well, let’s just say that it was introduced to me through almost family circles. And at first I was like “ok, I’ll take a listen”, but the statement was mostly just to see what’s going on there and I thought that I will quickly forget about the band. But oh damn how I was wrong! The six songs that are feautred on this release just kept spinning and spinning and endlessly spinning on my speakers! And no, it ain’t just because the album lasts “just” eight minutes. While You Wait litteraly radiates with something that is attracting you to their songs. Amazing instruments with great tunes which are really well composed together and the whole record is kinda connected into one whole, so you listen to it in “one breath” so to speak. But then again, you also get the feeling that every song is a different chapter for itself, with riffs, melodies and lyrics changing quite a lot. I especially liked how the album is kind of divided into three parts (at least in my mind), with the first track, “This Is My Sun”, starting quite sudden and explosive. The tempo builds to the third song “A Life For A Life”, which is sort of mid tempo, with a really flowing and constant sound which is amazing. Then after “Watching A World Die” the songs start to have a slower tone at parts with distinctive breakdowns and then finally the last track which is very slow and sort of drifting away to the end of the record. So you really feel the mini-chapters and the oneness of the record at the same time, which is quite interesting. Also, the technical side of the album is quite attractive, some riffs are brilliant and I must say that I like the vocals very much, both the singer’s and the ocasional “scream-alongs”. Every part of the tunes is well composed and infused with one another and you have the feeling that everything is where it should be, litteraly nothing is astray.
    This great EP was released in 2008. But luckily While You Wait is a hardworking band so in 2009 they released an album named “My End My Rebirth”, yet another amazing record. I really suggest to everyone to check them out and support them, since they all are very talented and deserve the attention and I really hope that they will continue to flurish the way they started. Definitely check them out on their myspace page bellow, take a listen and enjoy. I’m sure you will love them!

    I’d also like to thank Andrea (guitar player in WYW), for wanting me to post their release on Skream Your Lungs Out and for being quite excited about that. And of course for the amazing While You Wait merch as a present! Hvala!=) (if you are reading this, say hi to Maria and the rest of the band:)

    notes: I am a complete idiot. This (and one other) band has been given to me for posting a while ago by Botond from Itai Itai records and I have totally forgot to post:/ So sorry for that. Anyway, when Choose Your Path stopped to exist, Document rose from it’s ashes. Quite an interesting band, be sure to check it out!

    notes: After a mail from this band and after me getting the dload link, I very gladly rush over here to post. I’m really not a big fan of hardcore, but this stuff is great! Seven songs of fast rhythms, great tune build-ups and occasional scream-a-longs, this band brings us almost 20 minutes of brilliant tunes. Check them out, hope they start touring soon!
    Also, look them up on their myspace www.myspace.com/rhamusik

    notes: Way back in 1997, there was this band and all three songs they recorded were absolutely amazing. What strikes me the most is that this band is quite unknown, so this is the chance to correct that. Take a listen, enjoy and feel sad that this band fell apart in 2003.

    notes: So Douglas (vocalist in Contour) contacted me to check them out and post if I like them. And I must say, I’m quite happy I found out about these young lads, since they play some very interesting and unique tunes. A blend of a few styles, they offer very heavy, sometimes mid tempo, sometimes fast, sometimes slow and gentle tunes, with kinda mathcore stop-start rhythms and very interesting singing/screaming. The mood of songs shifts also, from sort of depressive and lost, to kinda just downright angry. This all probably sounds thrown together and stupidly written, but this band really offers a bunch of enjoyment in their tunes and you really can’t pinpoint them to one specific genre. Definitely check them out! Also visit their myspaz http://www.myspace.com/contourmelbourne

    notes: And here it is, the final release by Choose Your Path. Hope you all enjoyed our trip through their discography. Band members moved on to create bands such as “Document of Forgotten Smiles” and “Hide Bounds”, both bands absolutely worth your time.

    notes: After V.A.N.E. recorded “Resurrection”, then came a new release and more importantly, a change of name into “Choose Your Path”, a name as they say has a stronger meaning. Sometimes when you listen to a band you can almost predict the sound coming next in a song, but that is not a case here. They really have a fast shifting sound, totally unpredictable and energetic.

    notes: After the “Inanition” compilation we move along and watch(and hear) an evolution process of one band. Starting under the name V.A.N.E. and releasing this demo back in 2002, these guys brought us some really dark and heavy screamo/hc. One year later they changed their name and recorded some new material. Stay tuned for that, in the meantime enjoy!
