Death Letters / “Post-Historic” / Silent Voice Records

Blurb on the front cites “raw emotion and urgent rhythm” - very fitting. Frenetic sound, fast electric guitars, mostly very uptempo, combo of yelling and singing (male vox). Pretty emo, these guys are young, but talented. This is whatever genre “At the Drive-in” is. I think. A lot of switching between frantic-fast to super mellow, then back. Nothing stands out too much, but all decent.

FCC track #2 - “mindfuck”.
Favorite tracks: 9, 10

1. 4:18 Uptempo, thrashy guitars, not particularly catchy.
2. 2:11 FCC - “mindfuck”. Uptempo, with a slower break in the middle. Nice melody.
3. 6:25 This is like 6 songs in one. A bunch of disjoint melodies/interludes put together. Thrashy to mellow to thrashy. Not bad.
4. 5:34 Slower, pretty, dark. A little dramatic.
5. 1:25 Instrumental, fuzzy.
6. 3:15 Midtempo, kind of a nice distorted guitar sound.
7. 4:00 Slow, positive, strummed guitar, voice sounds female here. A little repetitive but nice.
8. 3:52 Uptempo, super yelly/emo, then a slow breakdown. Then back.
9. *2:20 Starts with awesome guitar riff, devolves a bit with screaming. But then melody reemerges. Cool riff again at end! Frantic, but nice.
10. *5:35 Slow, with echoey piano and guitar, sounds gets bigger, but returns. Nice piano at end.
11. 3:12 Super light/slow start, explodes into something big. To remind us of their style before we left.
