Biography

“Magnetic poles are a constant but no one can get an entirely accurate reading, they are always off a degree or so. This band is like that, keeping a constant purpose but kind of wandering and stumbling upon new things.” Vocalist Jay Forrest tries to put into words the impetus behind the title of the band’s forthcoming album titled Magnetic North to be released on Trustkill ...

It's more of a great improvement from "A-Types".
Jonathan
The song variation itself is quite amazing, with plenty heavy tracks, and more calm indie - sounding tracks.
S. Hope
Simply put, I thought it was a masterful work of art.

In a straight-forward comparison between The Satellite Years and Magnetic North, one would probably not think the two to be similar at all. Magnetic North is more of an evolution from the style of A-Types. However, the two albums are pretty similar in terms of creating an atmospheric mood and are both very melodic. Both albums are mood-altering masterpieces, keep them both around, and depending what mood you are in, choose to listen to the darker, heavier mood created by The Satellite Years, or the more calming, almost trance-like melodic rock of Magnetic North. If you loved The Satellite Years and are not one of those people who only like screaming vocals, I believe you will enjoy this album.

Best tracks: Cubic Zirconias Are Forever, Secondhand Surgery, East of 1989; Battle Of The Bay, Vacation/Add/Vacation!, Head General Hospital, Paisley

I actually give the album 4 1/2 stars. I'm just going to make this review short and simple. After Hopesfall released A-types i was turned off from this band after liking them so much. I felt that album was a major disapointed compared to The Satellite Years. Magnetic North seems to have gone a little bit back to their roots a but still kept the more "rock" sound. They don't really scream anymore which some might not like but i love their style of singing. My favorite tracks would have to be "RX contender the pretender", "swamp kittens", "cubic zirconias are forever", "vacation/add/vacation!", and "head general hospital" to name a few.

If you are unexperienced with Hopesfall, and are into alternative melodic rock you should definitely check this release out. While it might not strike you as a masterpiece upon first listen, it will eventually grab you and drag you down into a universe of depth which many bands in this genre only can hope to achieve. Even though songs are somewhat traditional structurally in terms of verse and chorus, there is so much variation within each song that everytime you listen to the album you will discover something new. The song variation itself is quite amazing, with plenty heavy tracks, and more calm indie - sounding tracks. While some listeners might critize this as a loss of focus and direction, it aslo adds more depth and longvity to album as a whole. Lastly, the vocal performance on this album is simply to good to go unmention. The vocalist might not be the best singer, but the effort and emotion he puts in into each track will amaze you.

I didn't even know these guys were back on the scene until earlier this week so I went to best buy and picked this record up. First and foremost, I've always loved the art direction and packaging(booklet pictures,etc) these guys use to convey their imagery; be it on the satellite years, A types, or even this album. To me, it gives off a sort of spacy, sci-fi surrealism that only adds to their overall style when the music is intertwined within these themes. With that being said.....

This is a good album to put in and just "chill" with. With moody progressive guitars, thought provoking lyrics, and ambient sounds throughout-as well as Jay's soothing melodies- I can't help but be intrigued. There are still a few heavy passages(riff wise) and screamed vocals sprinkled throughout but ultimately this album is more closely related to A-Types than The Satellite Years(yeah I know some of you will be disappointed). But if you can just take this record at face value you'll find a well put together experience that grows on you with each listen. I can't help but be drawn to it. Overall, an interesting album which holds it's own compared to their past work IMO.

Standout tracks include: Rx Contender the Pretender,Swamp Kittens, and the final track on the ablum Paisley- which is amazingly simple yet haunting and heartfelt.

When I first heard this album, it felt as though this was the album I'd been waiting to hear for awhile. I hadn't heard much of Hopesfall before this release so I had no basis of comparison for their previous releases. Simply put, I thought it was a masterful work of art. This album sounded as though they were expressing thier inner sound as opposed to trying to sound like something preconceived. The sound is epic, yet heavy, and at times beautiful. This album is the best I've bought from anyone in quite awhile. It has barely left my CD player and I've had it for nearly two weeks. Some of the reviews I read were comparing this album to previous works and saying Hopesfall "improved" their sound but if you assume nothing and take the album at face value I thing it is much better than just an "improvement". Bottom line, if you're on the edge, and you think you might like this album, BUY IT! You will.

So....after listening to A-types, I had pretty much given up on this band. Magnetic North came out, I didn't really care. Then I got a call from my drummer that was like "dude, seriously.......give it a chance. It's amazing" So, I gave it a listen & low & behold, it is now by far one of my favorite albums this year to say the least. The seemingly hopeless vocals on A-types are easily the most noticable improvement, as they are nothing short of incredible on MN. Overall musicianship has improved leaps & bounds as well & I now eagerly await Hopesfall's next release!
