Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the Metalcore monsters. The Chariot have never been a band comfortable with the status quo. Wars And Rumors Of Wars will tip the scales and push the limits of what modern Metalcore can accomplish in the span of just 10 songs. The band's 2007 epic sophomore full length, The Fianc‚e, saw the band trade it's signature chaotic charm of 2005's Everything Is Alive... and dish out a more focused and brutal brand of chaos. Wars And Rumors Of Wars takes this new direction even further, and turns up the heat another 250 degrees.

as a close friend once told me about one of our favorite bands "mewithoutYou"....

"it's like a fine wine, a great number of people won't be into it, but upon repeated listening, or even a glimpse of motivation towards this kind of music, and you'll be hooked - you'll soon know how brilliant it really is..."

i believe this kind of goes towards the chariot's 3rd full-length album, titled; "wars & rumors of wars".

first off, if you're new to the chariot, or have never heard of them, heed the warning anyone will give you;

1. start from the beginning, and end in the end. their albums go in order, and it's important to listen to that. if you must, start with luti-kriss, work your way through "bless the martyr..." by norma jean, and finally into the cha-cha-cha-chaaariot's first debt "Everything Is Alive, Everything Is Breathing Nothing Is Dead and Nothing Is Bleeding"

2. listen to any of their music twice in a row. it's almost necessary. you know what i thought of their debut? i hated it. it was noisy, WAY too much feedback, and had horrible production. and as another reviewer once said about the chariot... one day you'll have your playlist going, and some random song by them will pop up, and you'll ask yourself "who is this, and where can i find more?!" - only to find that they were that band you used to hate...

i've done this several times, but that was several years ago. 2004 to be exact. and upon hearing a few songs from norma jean's "bless the martyr..." i started to see similarities in the music, however a much more chaotic grain-of-salt involved with the debut by the chariot.

i may be rambling here, but i think i have discovered a point.

the chariot is the most visceral of music you will ever come by.

Just as I start off almost all of my reviews, I would like to say that only two albums I have come across in my days have earned a straight 5 stars for me. I can't stand it when people say every other album is 5 star worthy. To be 5 stars it must be FLAWLESS. So, a 4.5 for me is a HUGE deal. Anyway, on to the review.

'Wars...' was at the number two position for my most anticipated albums slated to release this year. I was not expecting anything but quality material. And let me tell you something, this record is full of almost nothing but just that.

The album opens with my personal favorite track from the disc. That does not mean that it is the most technically proficient, innovative or unique track, it just simply means it's my favorite. 'Teach:' is such a jarring and uproarious opener. I believe someone referred to it as a "brutal waltz". I think that is as close to a perfect description as I can think of explain the song. The beginning of 'Teach:' is great, but from 1:05 on is where the money is at. Lets just put it this way...the build-up and release is ALMOST as powerful and engaging as the end of 'The Deaf Policeman', from their sophmore album, The Fiancee. Hearing Scogin yell,"I refuse to breathe the breath of the failure!" right before the release at the end is enough to give anyone chills. Quality through and through.

'Evolve.' continues the stuttering insanity that was introduced to you via 'Teach:'. This may be Scogins' shining moment as a vocalist on this album. He has not been this in-your-face since the beginning of his career. This track may also be drummer David Kennedeys' shining moment, as well. It's high-speed and sporadic, yet so amazingly controlled.

The Cha Cha Cha Riot have returned with their third full length release: Wars and Rumors of Wars. Other reviewers have already gushed over this album so I'll point out a few things that haven't been said, including some criticism. I'll start with the positive.

First, Josh Scogin has the best voice in the business, and he's in top form on this record. He's never used any vocal enhancements in the past (that I know of, anyhow) and I don't believe he is on this record, but his lyrics are delivered gorgeously. I can't say enough about the emotion he puts into each song.

Second, the album sounds like a live performance. It's not overly sloppy or anything, but it definitely isn't perfect the way nearly all metal albums are these days. Wars is not over-produced, but mixed and mastered well enough to let it shine. The feedback and other such imperfections keep the album honest, and it's refreshing to listen to. You get 5 guys playing their instruments, not computers.

For these reasons and more (see other reviews for some), the album is certainly worth owning for anyone who is a fan of The Chariot, Norma Jean's first (and, in my opinion, best) album [Bless The Martyr, Kiss the Child], or who enjoys heavy music and is looking for something new. I got mine for $7.99.

Now the bad. Note: this is nitpicky stuff that doesn't matter much to me, but I understand that other people might want to know about it.

First, you remember me mentioning I got the album for 7.99? Well, the value isn't as good as it sounds (in terms of dollars/minute) because Wars clocks in at 30 minutes, 28 seconds.
