About the Artist

In one form or another, HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS have been making music for 2 years now with their melodic mixture of punk, hardcore, emo, metal and rock influences coupled with soaring, grooving melodicism.

Forming in Dayton, OH in 2001 under the original name of A DAY IN THE LIFE, they immediately set to work on recording and releasing their first full-length album on indie label Confined Records. Through five national self-booked tours with some of today's biggest bands, various line-up changes and one name change, the band kept their eyes on the prize, and grabbed it when their favorite label, VICTORY RECORDS, finally came calling.

Product Description

HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS are Victory's next high priority emo project, and are already generating a buzz with the Victory fan base. The Silence In Black and White record will appeal to fans of THURSDAY, TAKING BACK SUNDAY and SILVERSTEIN.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Album That Won't Disappoint March 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Hawthorne Heights is one of the best bands I have heard in far too long. There are so many "screamo" bands that have no depth, can't be understood and pretty much just suck all around. HH's The Silence In Black And White has amazing haunting vocals with screaming in the background. The melody with the screaming makes for a beautiful combination that I never get tired of. I have seen HH in concert 3 times and continue to be blown away by them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Learn how to write a review please... April 12, 2005
By Austin
Format:Audio CD
I like this CD. Now, I dont consider myself "emo". I dont normally listen to this type of music, I dont dress in black, I dont stress over a girlfriend just breaking up with me, or any of the other stereotypes associated with emo... This is just a good CD. Now if you dont like screaming at all, you might not like it too much. Myself, I didnt really care for screaming at first, but after multiple listens, it grew on me (in this CD atleast...). This is an emotional CD, and the screaming really helps to pull out that emotional aspect. There isnt an abundance of it, and it doesnt sound bad. The vocals are good, their on key, they dont whine at all. On the first few listens, this CD didnt sound that great. But I gave it a chance, and found that it really grew on me. So I would recommend you give it a good chance too, if you dont mind a bit of screaming. Overall, I think this is a well done CD.

On another note, if you plan on giving a CD a bad review, take the time to explain why. Just saying: "It sucks, dont buy it" doesnt really tell anyone why not to buy it. Tell us why you dont like it, and for Heaven's sake try to sound the least bit intelligent...

5.0 out of 5 stars Hawthorne Heights June 15, 2004
By Dan
Format:Audio CD
Yes as many reviews have pointed out, this cd has been done before many times. But HH has done a great job finding a happy medium between emo and screamo. Its too heavy to be emo, but its also pretty weak screamo, which isn't all that bad. The songs are super tight too, all of them around 4 minutes. My only complaint is that the lyrics are sometimes a bit weak, but overall its a great listen.
1.Life on Standby-9/10- One of the heavier tracks, and it works.
2.Dissolve and Decay-10/10- This song is still stuck in my head.
3.Niki FM-10/10-Another standout, this is probably my 2nd favorite.
4.The Transition-8/10-Decent, with some catchy breaks that boosts its rating.
5.Blue Burns Orange-9/10-Catchy all the way through, with a great chorus.
6.Silver Bullet-9/10-First song I heard, I had to buy this after.
7.Screenwriting and Apology-7.5/10-Very forgettable.
8.Ohio is for Lovers-10/10-Great song, a definate standout.
9.Wake up Call-Amazing song, my favorite on the disc.
10.Sandpaper and Silk-8/10-also forgettable, but a very good track.
11.Speeding up the Octaves-8.5/10-Great song, but by no means the best on the cd.
Overall, this cd is definately worth the 12 bucks. HH have put together 11 amazingly catchy songs here that won't dissapoint.

By Andrew
Format:Audio CD
these guys are probably my 2nd fav band now, i've listened to it strait through over 30 times and i love every song here's what i think of each track:
1.Life on Standby -Great song with more screaming then the others
2.Dissolve and Decay-I love the guitar solos in this and also a great song.
3.Niki FM-heard it on the demo cd and loved it one of my favs.
4.The transition-another fav, great song.
5.Blue Burns orange-Awesome song, good chorus.
6.Silver Bullet-This song is really good song too, good to listen to after a split up :)
7.Screenwriting an apology-omg my fav on the cd no questions asked. 20 out of 10. haha.
8.Ohio is for Lovers-Great song one of the best on cd. I dowloaded the video and wathced it over and over...damn good.
9.Wake up call-at first i hated the begining now i love it. great song.
10.Sandpaper and silk- not my fav but a great song!
11.Speeding up the Octaves-This songs prob got the strongest lyrics but its not my fav its obviously good tho.
This cd is a steal its worth a hell of a lot more than 12 bucks they must be insane. BUY IT NOWWWW!!! I didn't even like screaming b4 i listened to these guys now i love it. You won't regret it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underrated by the underground community March 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Here's the thing about Hawthorne Heights, they're actually a decent band who just happened to pull that on card out of the deck to make it big. Unfortunately, most non-conformist screamo/emo/hardcore listeners have it in their mindset that "success" rhymes with "sell-out". Sometimes I will agree, but in this case The Silence in Black and White was reasonably succesful with the non-mainstream community before MTV even thought of picking it up and butchering it. Admittedly the album isn't the best but has some powerful songs, Blue Burns Orange is one of the more powerful Emo songs I've heard in a while. Yet much of the album seems a bit like space filling mush, it's still not a horrible album. If You're an open-minded, accepting emo fan than I would highly recommend picking up this album, it is, after all, one of the better very recent albums of it's genre

5.0 out of 5 stars stop hating. July 12, 2005
By jenny
Format:Audio CD
i understand that everyone has their opinions, but i've had it with people not recognizing good music. if you hate a certain type of music, don't go buy cd's that fall under that category and then write bad reviews like you're shocked that you didn't like the cd. chances are that if you hate emo music or screamo or good music in general, you may not like hawthorne heights, but then again you probably listen to crap like nelly and think, now that's a song, so who really cares what you think anyway?

if you do like emo/screamo/hardcore/good music you will love the hawthorne heights cd! the lyrics really make you think, and ohio is for lovers, as good as it is, is NOT the best song on the cd. all 11 songs are amazing and will get stuck in your head, and trust me, you'll want them there!

i've had the chance to see this band live, actually before i got/heard all their album except for "ohio is for lovers" and i think that if you ever have them in your city, grasp the chance to see them live b/c their live shows are what really brings in the audience. after seeing their amazing show i was so excited to get the album, luckily it didn't disappoint. every song on the album is an instant favorite amongst fans of the genre. in any case, punk-rockers and emo-lovers should give these guys a listen!

i can't wait to see what they do next. they're sure to be the next my chemical romance, so if you don't like them, just get out of the way b/c hawthorne heights is better than you and will rock your face off!
