By Scott Hay on April 3, 2004
Format: Audio CD
I just saw Haste The Day LIVE on the SolidState Tour 2004 in Michigan a couple nights ago (along with Dead Poetic, Beloved, Underoath, and Norma Jean)! They came up first; and although I didn't know a lot of the words or many of their tunes going in, I was absolutely blown away at just how good these guys are. not only musically, but ministerially as well. They were the only group of the 5 that made an open proclamation for Jesus Christ to the audience that night (though Norma Jean did have images of the crucifixion playing on the background screen while they performed). Upon getting home that night and listening to their independant EP (which thankfully they still had copies of on the tour) "That They May Know You" and "Burning Bridges"; I cannot express just how excited I am to listen to these guys' music and to have seen them live; and how on edge I am for them to put out another record (though BB was released just a coup[e months ago, if that!). These guys remind me of a Zao (more recent stuff) meets Living Sacrifice meets Project 86 combo!
I feel very blessed to have their material on my shelf! Stay safe on the tour, boys; and make another record soon so I don't have to replace my speakers from constantly cranking BB (I want to ruin them on some newer work:)!

You know a metalcore album is good when you feel your heart beating in time with the breakdown.
And you know a good melody when you're singing along even though you don't know the words yet.
"Burning Bridges" by Haste the Day did both of those to me, all within the same song. It's that duality of intense metalcore and heartbreaking lyricism that makes this my favorite hardcore CD.
The majority of the album is fast, ferocious metalcore. They have the best recorded guitars I've heard on any standard audio CD. Their breakdowns are grabbing enough to cause a traffic accident. And their lead vocalist (four of them sing) has a throaty scream reminiscient of As I Lay Dying. It's enough to make any hardcore kid punch the floor in joy.
Yet Haste the Day doesn't limit itself to screaming and breakdowns. One of their other members sings soaring melodic
lines with the most wrenching voice. He has a resonance similar to Creed and Kutless without any of the accompanying nasality.
When you combine the searing hardcore and unabashed lyricism Haste the Day offers, the result is usually a jaw hitting the floor.
Of course, "Burning Bridges" is by no means a perfect album. Their lead vocalist doesn't have much variety in his screaming --it rarely fluctuates from a middle range. An occasional guitar dissonance or two along the lines of Norma Jean or Symphony in Peril would sharpen their songs' impact considerably. And most noticeable of the album's shortcomings is the abrupt transition in "American Love" into a lengthy clean guitar/voice duet that seems out of place.
However, for fans of hard music, this CD is a must-have. "Burning Bridges" will scorch your CD player, ears and heartstrings to a blissfully contented crisp.

A Kid's Review on March 11, 2005
Format: Audio CD
I love this. Yes the riffs are repetitive but I think thats not a problem if the riffs are just awesome (which they are). Shall we take a look-see at this?

1. Blue 42: Nice opening chord. Kinda slow at beginning then for about 25 secs starting at 50 secs duration theres a good riff. However it turns into this awesome riff for 25 secs. Then slows down a little (i mean a little). Picks up in some spots. 9/10

2. The Closest Thing to Closure: Love intro, middle, outro! PERFECT. I really like the mixture of the inhumane shouting and singing that they do. 10/10

3. American Love: Starts at a good pace then slows down for a while. But it picks up w/ a nice riff. Slows down a bit then turns more mellow. 8/10

4. Concerning the Way it Was: Stays at a good pace throughout the song. Ending riffs are cool. 9/10

5. Song of Faith: AWESOME INTRO (i think so). Slows down a little near middle. Then near end guitar comes in on G, B, E strings w/ a nice set of individual notes pretty fast. 10/10

6. Ros King: Good start and finish. However too short. 7/10

7. One Life to Live: Weak intro but picks up after a little bit. Near the end is a good riff. 8.5/10

8. The Last Goodbye: Good intro. Becomes more mellow. Picks up again later but slows down again. 7/10

9. An Honest Confession: Nice intro. Nice riff after intro. Then the intro is played again, but faster so it does sound different. Keeps the tempo up then slows down a little. 10/10

10. Substance: All in-your-face music. Consists of great riffs. Bass and guitar solos appear. Bass solo is slow while guitar is repeated a couple times. Slows down just to pick right back up for the rest of the song. 10/10

This is something I normally might not be into, just because they're are so many bands that sound similar, the genre has become stale. However just the pure nostalgia of this album, driven into my subconscious by the great melodies and super catchy hooks, draws me back over and over. Bands that I would immediately compare these guys to are Zao, Society's Finest and maybe FATA. Each song is distinct and has its own feel. The production is very good as well. Basically if you like epic, 'valiant' melodies that stick in your head along with good heavy mosh grooves, I reccomend you get this.
