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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars fabuloushardcore November 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
My brother saw Hopesfall perform one of their first shows back in 1999. He told me about how amazing they were, so I tracked down Frailty of Words and bought it online. I had all but stopped listening to hardcore before the first night I listened to the DTS release. Just like a lot of independent music, my first listen was a confused and almost disappointing one. But then I listened to it again. Now, nearly five years later, this is still my favorite cd of all time. I listen to all kinds of music too. I'm not a die hard metalcore/hardcore fan by any stretch of the imagination. These guys are blessed. Even though the original members have all gone their seperate ways for the most part, I still support and buy every album that this band comes out with.

Now, let me get to No Wings To Speak Of. Just as enjoyable as their first album, and slightly more progressive. If you want to here some outstanding music, buy this EP. Trust me, for fans of hardcore, this is cutting edge pure emotion spilled out over sound waves. It will change your perception forever. Everyone rants about End Of An Era. It's absolutely 100% as good as people say, but every song on here is equally impressive. This is the fullest sounding, most emotionally driven, heart pounding, deep and intense music I've heard maybe ever. If you don't buy this cd, you are cheating yourself big time.

If you like Hopesfall, I strongly recommend 7Angels 7Plagues, Misery Signals, Evergreen Terrace, Between The Buried and Me, Prayer For Cleansing. All these bands deliver much passionate hardcore, but you just can't compare them to Hopesfall. They are in a Leauge all their own. And just one more thing. What is it about North Carolina that so many of these awesome bands come from there? I dunno.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hopesfall January 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
what can I say? These guys are phenominal! I expected nothing less. A Charlotte, NC based hardcore/emotional band screams and sings their way to be one of the best bands of their genre on the scene. Like all hardcore music, repeated listenings are a must because you don't catch everything that goes on in the songs on the first listen.
For fans of From Autumn to Ashes, Glassjaw, Atreyu, Beloved, Poison the Well, Avenged Sevenfold, Underoath, and Boy Sets Fire
Their newer album is most definitely worth checking out. Hardcore music is never gonna go mainstream but Hopesfall will become one of the major influences in the modern hardcore scene
Enjoy and rock on!
-Greg

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 isnt enough February 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
ok track by track is how this review is going to go
in no particular order of course here we go
-endeavor- the band breaks this one down and delivers a technical masterpeice with slowdowns and mind jarring riffs the dual lyrics and screams are something you can only dream of.
-open hands to the wind- a solid track starting out with a barrage of lyricl chaos including screams and yells leading to yet another beautiful musical break down.
-april left with silence-ooo what a beautiful song soft subtle lyrics saying silence to lead it off and then boom they get straight to the point this song is a great emotional song i love it so much.
-from your hands-in my opinion the song most of us can relate to great emotionaly lyrics mixed with yet more well hopesfall great breakdowns and speed ups and he really flexes his voice with this song.
-far pavilions-one of my personal favorites of any band of all time the band is all on the same page on this whole album but this song seperates itself from everyone in this genre when you add lyrical genius to incredible musicianship you get wonders the drums leading up to a barrage of beauty set the tone for the album.
-end of an era-lackadasical in my oppinion but only to other bands standards this completes my review of quite possibly the best band when they were together also check out there other songs not on trustkill before the singer left

5.0 out of 5 stars the perfect ep February 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This ep, the axiously awaited follow up to their debut album "The Frailty of Words" established hopesfall as the most talented melodic hardcore band in the scene. Though this ep has only four songs, it is flawless. Never before has a band blended aggressive hardcore with incredibly melodic emotion this seamlessly. Out of my collection of hundreds of hardcore cd's, no wings to speak of stands out as a brilliant masterpiece. The lyrics are deep and full of imagry, the guitars full of emotion, and the composition is nothing short of perfect. It is an amazing album that I would recommend to anyone with an open mind. Unfortunately they have gone through several member changes and are no longer the same band. Their new effort isn't as impressive, though it is still good. It's rare that a hardcore album can bring tears with its emotion, but this ep has truly redefined melody in the hardcore scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing cd. Practically Perfect. June 22, 2004
By t
Format:Audio CD
This cd is almost too good for words. I would'nt ever want to compare it to The Satellite Years though, because they're both too good.
1.) Open Hands to the Wind - (10/10) A great, blasting way to start of a great cd. Good chord progression later in the song. Has a quiet interlude about halfway through, and then ends in a Hopesfall-esque emotionally-driving way that Hopesfall got their signature sound from. (Did that make sense?)
2.) April Left With Silence - (10/10) Wow, this track is amazing. I love all the guitar parts throughout the whole song. This song, if you ask me, is more of an experience than anything else. I don't have enough words for this song so I'll end it here.
3.) The End of an Era - (10/10) This is the long, almost epic song. I love this song to death, but it's probably my least favorite or second least favorite on this cd. It's just a bit long for my tastes. Keep it short and sweet. Great guitars, however.
4.) The Far Pavilions - (10/10) What an amazing song. This and April left with silence alone make this EP worth every penny of the purchase. It just has so much emotion jam-packed within a 5 minute song. The chords are amazing in the middle of the song, and the song smoothly leaves the listener with a calm, atmospheric guitar part. I love it when the drums pound lightly near the end. Bravo.
All in all...this EP is one of the most amazing EP's you'll ever find or discover. Buy this immediately.
(40/40) A+
