Editorial Reviews

Swallow them down, it burns like fire/ Your words are the Devil s machine Someone has wronged O Brother and I find myself thanking God it wasn t me. With acerbic lyrics hung around its neck like millstones, The Death of Day is a lumbering behemoth, as dangerous and deep as it is pained and crippled. Its five tracks clock in at over 31 minutes of distorted rock, crunchy feedback, and hollered declarations. Clearly vocalist/guitarist Tanner Merrit is well versed in the Dustin Kensrue School of Emoting , but his gravely tones owe just as much to 90s grunge and alt rock. Only a voice such as his could stand atop the mile-high wall of sound generated by the band (Johnny Dang and Aaron Wamack on guitars, Anton Dang on bass, and Michael Martens on drums). A slip of tongue/ These words fall like an avalanche The conflict is obvious. Slipping into the cracks between the furious cries of self-doubt and rejection, we can see the glints of conciliation found in a higher power. Amid the cacophony of Oh, Charitable Thief, a nine and a half minute tour de force that sandwiches massive instrumentals and heavenly choirs between murmuring clouds of reverb, come plaintive lyrics: Oh vessel of grace, whisper in my ear/ Some melodious sonnet of forgiveness/ Sweet seraphim won t you sing me to peace. It s as beautiful as the earlier rage was frightening. Elsewhere, though, the lyrics slide a bit, letting up in their fierce passion. Ascension falters a bit, tripping through lines such as, All in all we re dust and bone/ So we ll dig our graves before we re old enough to lie in them. Far more often than not, O Brother delivers elaborate imagery, but it can only trickle into the musical rut, the aforementioned WALLOFSOUND. Although effective with the knob turned to 11, the album is at its most potent when it hovers around 3 or 4 (e.g., the first two and half minutes or so of Ascension ). Slip in this certain knot of peace/ I m keeping silent, keeping silent/ Til it, in turn, keeps me There s no mistaking the genuine fervor behind The Death of Day. It s impossible to ignore. Travis Parno (Absolute Punk)

I've already gotten this album. However when ever I get mp3 credit from amazon I try to rebuy cd's to support my favorite bands. This is among those worthy. An Album with 5 songs and about 30 minutes of breath taking music for 5 bucks this package is totally worth it. I'v seen these guy's live close to 3 times and each time it just gets better. It's bands like this that make me know music truly still exists in a form of art and not a money maker.

This music is hart to categorize but for the 35 minute album (it only has 5 tracks) what is there is majestic. If you're a fan of Thrice's more recent music namely the Alchemy indexes you'll love this.

Saw these guys live with Thrice, was seriously blown away. Lead singers voice is amazing, somewhat similar to Dustin's from Thrice. If you love melodic rock, these guys are for you. At the price you don't have much to loose.
