Editorial Reviews

Progressive indie-rock that ebbs and flows so gracefully and passionately, it is almost a mystery when and where the four-piece morph from ethereal piano instruments to a dynamic crescendo of emotional rock. Undecided Records. 2002.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal Yet Melodic March 4, 2004
By Tony
Format:Audio CD
This six song EP entitled "Birthplace and Burrial Site" by As Hope Dies is simply a masterpiece. Every song is insanely brutal, yet is always melodic at the same time. The screams of the singer sends chills down my spine. From a musical standpoint, I would have to say As Hope Dies is the most talented band I have heard. It is a shame they broke up. I wouldnt know how to classify the genre this band belongs in because I have never heard any band like them. They have been compared to At the Gates by some, but even that isnt accurate. If you like brutal melodic music you should definitely pick this up (however you wont find this at your local Sam Goody).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the classics... February 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
for me anyway. Don't perceive this for a metal e.p. though. I love this band but if there is one thing they are not, it's metal. Nowadays it's very common for alot of bands to attach the label metal to their genre especially in the very talent lost hardcore scene. This is a hardcore band influenced heavily by European melodic metal acts like At The Gates, In Flames and black metal acts like Dissection. The vocalist takes his vocal pattern from most of those artists and the rythm section has written a massive attack of shredding metal guitars and mixes them with their hardcore roots in the drums and bass. This is a great e.p. from a metalcore band that added technicality and emotion to metalcore. One of the last good hardcore bands you'll ever hear and if you pick his up today you'll be listening to it ten years from now appreciating how ahead of it's time and truely golden this recording is. If you like this you should pick up End This Day, 7Angels 7Plagues, or Undying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless October 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
For being a metal album, this disc is still very easy to get into no matter what genre of music you are really into. Every single person in the band is ridiculously talented. Crushing screams are balenced out by beautiful melodic bliss, the drumming is tight and raw, and the riffs are some of the best metal guitar I've ever heard. I dare you to find catchier guitar parts, the only other band that comes close is As I Lay Dying, but As Hope Dies and them do not sound alike at all. This is basically an extremely well put together CD, with a lot of replay value. If you are looking for flat out damn good music, As Hope Dies is it. Personal favorites - "My Words to You" (intense), and "Letters of Our Existence" (sick melodic breakdown and one of the best guitar riffs I've heard in a while)
