wow, what a surprise. to be honest, i'd heard some stuff from these guys before, but frankly i was pretty bored with Breather Resist's earlier material. this is miles ahead of their old work and a real kick in the pants to the hardcore scene.

We're in a bit of a draught, folks. there are very few "metalcore" bands that i'm at all interested in anymore, and even less that are at all original. Now, i can't say that there are no bands that sound like breather resist, but i might go so far as to say there are none around that are doing this sound quite so well.

Breather Resist builds its songs around a thick, mid-paced atmospheric groove, with the usual squeels and ocasional southern rock influences. the whole album just oozes emotion which is very evident in the vocals(don't get me wrong, there's no clean singing or obnoxious balads here). but it's the songs that deviate from the typical breather resist structire that truly allow the band to shine. songs like "as far as goodbyes go" which includes some very subtle and moody horn-guitar interaction, and "loose lipped error" which is shockingly and powerfully calm, finally exploding into harsh rythems and high guitar squeels.

the album isn't entirely atmosphere, however. there's quite a few crowd pleasers, ripe with sing allongs and 2-steps to keep the kids dancing. ultimately what keeps me coming back to this album is the powerfull ambience and moody guitarwork. it's not terrible complex, despite any botch influence you might notice, but it's very solid. the hadcore community needs more bands like this.

Breather Resist took a real leap away from their "Only in the Morning" EP with this release. Where "Only in the Morning" would have you pumping your fist,"Charmer" nails you to your seat with its raw emotional fury.

The album is incredibly cohesive, with each song sounding like a piece of a bigger picture, and it works amazingly well in the context of an album as atmospheric as this. I wish more bands (hardcore or otherwise) would take a cue from the studio work on this album. So many tricks are used from song to song, without any of it sounding overdone or self-indulgent. If you listen close to the instrumental outro of "An Insomniacs Complexion" you'll hear vocal lines from early in the song played backwards under the mix. While you may not even hear this in your first 20 listens it's an interesting ambient touch. And speaking of ambiance, the the horn/guitar intro to "As Far as Goodbyes Go" is one of the most brilliant things I've heard in a hardcore song period.

Finally, as a total non-sequitur, I feel that I would be remiss if I did not mention the Breather Resist bassist. Jesus christ almighty I wish more bassists could lay down a groove like that guy. Thick, punchy, rhythmic lines can be found in every song, and I still marvel at his talent to this day.

4.5/5
