From Parts Unknown
This Buffalo bunch, with a young fanbase loyal enough that their previous album went Top 20 in Billboard, once again manages to sound at least marginally more rock 'n' roll than the average metalcore crew. In parts of "Decayin' with the Boys," "Thirst" and the Camaro-riffed "All Structures Are Unstable," Keith Buckley's singing bends in ways that don't even seem emo! More often, though, he throws conniption fits about hearts torn out, brains blown out and smelling a rat, while his mates stop and start and stumble all over each other. Beneath the screaming, "Exometrium" almost feels post-punk.
