Achilles presents us with a nice change of pace to the mathcore scene by not being obnoxiously heavy and, well, by not being overly mathy. The vocals on the album are very reminiscent of old Boy Sets Fire (the screaming vocals) which could place these guys very firmly in the old school screamo category. Before screamo was about being whiney and faux-punk--Achilles is a good representation of that sound. They're guitar tones are dirty and sometimes sloppy but, on purpose. They're aiming to create that tone and in doing so avoid falling into the bloated metalcore/technical hardcore genre.

This band isn't trying to be over the top heavy and they're not trying to impress you with their technique (though their technique is quiet excellent as evidenced in ""to The Teeth""); they're writing songs that are catchy and emotional without all that bleeding vagina, "you broke my heart now I'll slit my wrists," you're used to.

You'll have to be into punk to enjoy this and you'll have to be able to endure the old school hardcore vocals but the payoff is huge.

Unbelievable. Following up their incredible debut full-length "The Dark Horse," Rochester, NY's Achilles release another biting, precise blast of hardcore. Building on what they do best, the band adds an incredible amount of color to this album while maintaining an overtly rough edge.

I've owned "Hospice" for about two weeks now and I've listened to it at least two dozen times. Catchy, raw, and genuine, "Hospice" continues on the upward slope Achilles has been building for the last few years. For all fans of true to form hardcore; honest lyrics, amazing shifts in sound and texture, and in your face.
