Hardcore music to me is a tough industry to get into as it seems whether your growling like an idiot through the whole album, or pissing around like a pansy. There really should be a blend of both evils and that's what I feel makes a great hardcore album. Taking the time to blend with your music really well and taking the time to slow your vocals to an almost monotone then WHAM! Right back into a full out disturbing mosh pit beat that makes everyone feel the energy.
Anterrabae have really done what they set out to do and that is to make a hardcore album that seems to surpass lots of others in its genre. Lead singer Ryan takes a great position in his vocals to the music on how they crush right into each other. Starting right out of the opening riffs there is a second where your thinking to yourself and asking 'where is this going to go' and with out a blink Ryan starts show why he is such a great singer. "You don't know where I've been so could you bury it I am a tattered red carped lying in the corner of a room in the empty mansion you're a priceless cedar rocking chair teetering over like a ganglia breeze" being the opening lyrics to this track "Pink & Tender" really kind of hooks you to the album.
This album is filled with fantastic blood pumping beats with a great twist of artistic integrity put into it. With tracks like Albatross around the neck, I lifted her and unscrewed her leg, and the hands of Christ are beautiful hands. Really shocking kind of touching in-depth lyrics and album art I think this album is really something I wont put into a closet and lock away.
