If you like hardcore music, then you will really love this cd.
chris davis
This album is amazing, the length of this album is irrelevant because you can listen to this album over and over and over and never get tired of it.

And to those comparing this to Bless the Martyr, Kiss the Child - THIS ISN'T NORMA JEAN!!!

I got a good laugh out of the sticker on the corner of "Everything Is Alive..." that read something like "For Fans of Opeth, Unearth, and ASHLEE SIMPSON". A band on Solid State Records that sounds like a mediocre pop "star"? Yeah right; this band definitely has sense of humor.

When I first played the CD, I listened to the first track all the way through. I absolutely hated it. I then skipped through all the other tracks and listened to about 30 seconds of each. More of the same. I couldn't believe that I had wasted my money on this pile of slow-paced loud noisy garbage. The guitar feedback grated on my eardrums, and I ended up with a massive headache. Needless to say, I took a break from The Chariot for a while.

A few weeks later, however, the song "Die Interviwer" popped up on my mp3 player's random shuffle, so I listened to the whole song. I could actually tolerate it. Soon, I started listening to more and more songs from the album, and I was amazed by the realness of the sound, and the incredible brutality of it all: the ripping guitars, the pounding drums, and the lead singer, who roars like a man possessed. I listened to the album all the way through, and I was hooked.

The Chariot is a truly incredible band, and is nothing like I've ever heard before. They draw a listener in more than Norma Jean ever will. They are just as amazingly brutal in concert, also. However, a word of warning: You cannot just start listening to this band. A love of metal is required, and you have to be open to new styles. I would recommend listening to bands such as Becoming the Archetype before picking this album up. But it is well worth it; listening to The Chariot is a breathtaking experience.

First time I heard these guys I COULDN'T STAND THEM AT ALL, mainly because of the feedback.

But hey, I kept listening to them and the next thing I knew they were my favorite band. I'm into the Christian hardcore scene right now, and these guys are by far my fav. Yea it's raw, and most people listen and say that "there's no talent" and it's "just noise and feedback". Yea the feedback is annoying when you first hear them, but after you listen for a while you start to appreciate that it's there for a reason and it only makes the song sound more powerful.

Personally, the highlight of this disk for me would be Scogin's vocals. I haven't heard the entire BTMAKTC disk, so I can't compare them (nor do I want to, since this clearly is NOT norma jean). Anyone who can scream like that is NOT human. The instruments and his voice generate pure chaos...good stuff.

If you're more into the organized metalcore stuff...then go for Zao or Haste the Day...but if you want something that'll leave you thinking "Man...I wish I had the energy to do that" freaking listen to this stuff. It's great.

Lots of my friends complain about the vocals. They say that there's no talent because all he is doing is screaming, and anyone can do that. Hah, sure everyone can scream but how many people's screams sound as perfect as Scogin's? The screaming emphasises what the lyrics, it's not there to make up for a lack of singing talent. Scogin is amazing, simply put.

Like Norma Jean, the lyrics are kinda cryptic...

I made an account with amazon.com for the sole purpose of reviewing this album.

The first thing you'll notice when you pop this baby into your cd player is the sound. Raw, gritty, and unorganized are the first words that come to mind. This album was recorded live without the assistance of computers of any kind. Nodding back to the "authentic sound of rock and roll" The Chariot decided to ignore the standard in production in order to rock it LIVE instead...amazing. When this fact is taken into consideration you will be in awe by the practice and dedication that went in to making this beast the monster that it is. The only downfall here comes from the distortion that you'll pick up from the clashing sounds. This, however, isn't a big deal at all, and you'll quickly ignore it.

Each song incorporates intricate guitars and tight drumming. Prepare to mosh because this is incredibly brutal with frequent breakdowns. The lyrics are amazing, where songs have deeper meanings then what appears on the surface. The vocals range from a high pitched hardcore scream to the deepest metal growl i've ever heard. Personally, i'm not the biggest fan of hardcore/metal vocals, but the range that Josh Scogin posesses is incredible. Although inaudible at some times, the lyrics are easier to understand than Scogins previous releases: Luti-kriss/Norma Jean.

Perhaps the greatest thing of all is The Chariot's religous affiliations. Worshipping Christ Jesus through music is an incredible gift. However, passing up this piece of brilliance because of your differing religous views would be a BIG mistake.

My personal favorite track is 5: "And Then, Came Then." Also make sure to check out the home movie feature contained on this Enhanced CD...it's hilarious.

I HIGHLY recommend this album to anyone. 5 stars, without a doubt.
