Biography

“Magnetic poles are a constant but no one can get an entirely accurate reading, they are always off a degree or so. This band is like that, keeping a constant purpose but kind of wandering and stumbling upon new things.” Vocalist Jay Forrest tries to put into words the impetus behind the title of the band’s forthcoming album titled Magnetic North to be released on Trustkill ...

Hopesfall isn't the first band to disappoint and it certainly won't be the last.
cleverkarate
Simply put, "A Types" varies little from the hordes of other dime-a-dozen emo records currently crowding the market.

While I'll never knock a band for making the music they want to make, I can say that I just can't get into this one.

I've been a Hopesfall fan for a while, since No Wings came out, and the thing that facinated me the most with the band is its musical creativity. I find that they are similar to Opeth (not musically) that they are classified into a genre but really only have one element in common with the rest of the genre. If we pick apart TSY, the music has more in common with newer glassjaw and newer deftones that it does with hardcore. Which leads us to A-Types...

I was like every other Hopesfall fan in the sense that I was initially disappointed by the album A-Types. But I also found I couldn't stop listening to it. I also found that musically it was more of a simplified, more organized, and better produced version of TSY. One of the biggest complaints with A-Types are the vocals. I find this arguement a little unfounded considering the fact that 4 of the 6 songs contain a minimal amount of screaming and that almost every song on the album has some sort of singing during it. In any case, Jay can sing very well and lyrically this isn't your everyday "cut my throat" whining. Jay's lyrics are just facinating to read because you are forced to draw your own meaning out of the songs. Back to the music itself. The album swings around almost as moodily as the older Hopesfall albums. They switch through time signatures with incredible easy. Every part of the song belongs right where it is and nothing is done in excess. The songs The Ones and Per Sempre Marchiamo captured me with their sheer emotion. This a great album once you get past the band's former versions. I can't wait to hear their next album and see what direction they go from here.

Stand Out Tracks: Icarus, Breathe From Coma, The Ones, Per Sempre Marchiamo

Wow, there are pretty nasty reviews about this album here at amazon, I have seen other reviews in other sites and forums and I saw mixed opinions but people killed the album here. First I need to say that I don't think this album is bad at all, I actually discovered Hopesfall with this album back in 2004, after listening to this I checked out past releases and of course, obviously diehard fans of Hopesfall and hardcore are disappointed but I will clear the real picture here.

After the release of their first album The Frailty Of Words the band gained attention from hardcore fans because of the intriguing sound they had, then they released their debut EP that turned to be a slap in the face to the other hardcore acts, it certainly gained more attention to hardcore fans but the lead singer at that time leaved the band introducing us to Jay Forrest. Of course Jay being a new member didn't want to disappoint fans after the success of No Wings To Speak Of EP so he made this brilliant hardcore album with increased touches of melody and most of all ambience that indeed is pictured in its cover, though the only song in this particular album that is similar to future releases is Decoys Like Curves.

Now, after three releases of unique hardcore albums and the departure of multiple members obviously, first, Jay wanted to attract a bigger audience other than hardcore lovers to maintain the band he was already fronting and second, do you think Jay wanted to copy The Satellite Years and most importantly the last other singer and members from the first two albums, well, I wouldn't... hence, the release of A Types.

I respect the fact that .hopesfall. didnt want to make a 'Satellite Years Part 2. I respect the fact that artists have to evolve as they mature, and that creative growth is more important than writing music purely to please the fans rahter then the band. But i *really* cant get into this cd. I think a large part of this is down to Jays vocals, which really dont do it for me, theyre just too nasal for my liking. He had such a powerful, and lets face it, f*cking scary, guttaral scream on The Satellite Years, i wish he'd have used it more on this cd, even if it wasnt as much as before.

A lot of reviews ive read said that it takes a few spins to really get into this album, and ive definately played this a lot of times in the 6 or so months since ive had it, hoping that one day it would suddenly seep in to my brain and id love it, but its just not happened. To me most of the songs on here just blend into one another, theres not much to distinguish them from each other, and i find this gets dull and repetetive.

Musically it falls somewhere between recent Glassjaw and maybe newer Cave In, but it doesnt have any of the driving riffs or uniqueness of those two particular bands.

Its not all bad. I like the artwork for this release, its sort of a continuation of the space theme from TSY, but there are martian/angel type creatures instead of space pods and the layout is made up of dark red colours rather then the royal blue/navy of previous. Its good to see hopesfall still put effort into choosing artwork that goes some way to compliment the music.

There are a few tracks on here that i genuiunely like. 'The Ones' is very reminiscent of the spacey guitars on TSY, and it also has a really sweet drawn ut instrumental end.
