Editorial Reviews

If you're not familiar with Providence, RI's Daughters, ask yourself this: where the hell have you been? They've basically injected grind and all manners of extreme heaviness with a much-needed dose of lube, style, and danger. This is their second album, following 2003's "Canada Songs". "Spaz-core aficionados Daughters are always on the road, cramming peoples' eye holes and ear holes with blasts of high-density noise"- Pitchforkmedia.com. "Excellent spastic grind and discordant chaos" - Lambgoat.com.

this record is a diamond. it's a lovely work of art.

I must say that hell songs took me by surprise. and quite drastically. this record is pretty different from canada songs.
Upon my first listening of "fiery" on daughters' myspace page, I was somewhat turned off by the vocal stylings, which I have now come to love. so wonderfully refreshing. who else is doing something even remotely like this?
I happen to be quite attracted to originality, and daughters have carved out a very distinct sound for themselves (even more so) on this record. the lyrics are very humorous and full of character and delivered brialliantly, considered they are sung (if you could call it that) over music with no harmonic basis. the shreds of melody are intregrated very well with scarce use of horns and strings on top of twin guitars.
also to my liking, this record sounds very clear and is extremely well recorded, capturing the insanity of daughters' music, which has progressed considerably. songs seem more organized and memorable after only one or two listens, almost possesing a catchy quality while still retaining the chaos and brutality of daughters' completely atonal deluges of sound.
daughters have also stepped things up technically. this album contains much less repetition of riffs that I noticed happening quite often on canada songs.
the guitar interaction is brilliant; i haven't heard anyone else play like this. the music sounds extremely precise and expertley calculated. the bass takes a very active role, which is nice considering that the bass is often lost in this genre (I am speaking very generally here).
need I say anything about the drums? Perfect, precise interaction with the guitars; the entire blend creates a new brand of heaviness.

Daughters! Tore the roof off with their debut album 'Canada Songs' An epic of something very new & original in the world of underground intense music. Either enshrined or detested one thing was for sure: Daughters! made a dent.

I personally think they are their own musical miscreation, as if a demented serial killer genius got wasted and decided to make a hardcore band. But many found it easy to categorize them as "Grind" or "Screamo". But with Hell Songs Daughters! proudly maim the mere idea of being categorized, and they do it with thrashing glory. Form the opening semi-intoxicated crooning of frontman Lex, you can tell your in for something very bizarre. After the first few tracks you either be shell shocked or disgusted. I was somewhere along the latter. Then I realized, Daughters! have created an almost uncomprehensible cacaphony of sounds & textures like I've never heard. Thats damn impressive coming from a "screamo" band. Each musician has proven their genius, each one more relentlessly psychotic then the next. They even descend lightly into horns and strings, which blend nicely with the montage of noisy bliss. The highlight for me was the double-bass heroism of the drummer, truly unreal. The lyrics are also a bit more poetic then the first couple releases. Still are tragically demented and always humorous but on a whole very authenticlly crafted. While yes the album on a whole is downright insane, it's still bodacious and quite original, and rarely ever loses it's headbanger essence.

The biggest complaint I've heard about this album is that the frontman isn't screaming. I found that pretty ironic; a million kids will listen to a man wretch into a microphone but suddenly hiss at a frontman who decides to do something different?

...this is indeed avant garde...although I have given this the mathcore tag many a time there is definetely something more experimental about this...

...now I'm a real sucker for dissonant and diminished guitar sounds...which there is a plenty...and honestly I would buy it for the instrumentals alone...the drummer is fast...the guitars are squeaky and dirty...and the bassist sounds like a tremor...

...but of course there is also talk of the vocals...now unlike their earlier work of Canada songs (tee hee I said canada) there is barely any screaming at all...but he takes to the poetic rambling of a theatre critic on the edge singing "I drew a portrait of how I'd look with my hands around my throat"...it's very good to hear someone carry on the torch for nick cave and adds to the destruction of the guitars very percussively and poetically...

...I think if you want a sample "Recorded inside a pyramid" would be the best example and can be listened to on their myspace...their hell involves horses? Wow...

On this album, Daughters become even less accessible :) The vocal stylings of old have been totally overhauled to make way for a far more avant-garde, Antioch Arrow-esque approach, chock full of theatrical enunciation and dramatic proclamations. While Canada Songs was an excellently brief math-grind assault, Hell Songs is a lot more archetypically structured and bizarre, with some of the most unusual songs I've ever heard; mostly composed of shrill staccato bursts and arpeggiated noise riffs, the songs on this album have actually breached the 2 minute mark. I can't really point out any standout tracks; this is one of those albums you should listen to from start to finish to truly appreciate (although the epic 6 minute Cheers Pricks is probably the bands best song to date).
Reccomended for you adventurous types :D
