The Beautiful Brutality Of Down Again
A fresh EP release from Down Again brings together some brutality and some vast melodies and soundscapes with a beautiful fury and ground stomping power.
The Bury The Bones EP is absolute sonic energy in the form of passionately performed metal blended with screamo and alternative rock complete with piercing screams and impactful choruses that give the feel of bands like Avenged Sevenfold and 30 Seconds To Mars but with ultra anthemic feels.
Songs get huge and you will actually find yourself humming parts of these songs in your head long after they have ended.
This is a turn it up loud, cinemaitc, emotionally driven hardcore record that really has a killer sheen to it.
The record goes from sections that feel warm and almost pop-punk influenced to heavy and gritty with some piano sections and surprises around every corner.
This EP has much more than meets the eye. There are tracks that get theatrical and show such pure thriving power and passion that it's almost intimidating. These songs are like opuses and can really engulf you.
Any fan of great metal with multi screaming, melodic vocals, math guitars, progressive undertones, and in a range that brings together styles from the 90's to now, will love this without question.
Acoustic ballads that burst into massive waves of song combining female angelic vocals with screaming all in this raptured style really get you drawn in.
You think you know just what to expect after the first track but you don't.
This release has layers that are to be peeled back and soaked in.
It actually feels almost like a concept album. And it just may be one.
Either way, come jump into this fists in the air, head banging, sing along record.
