|Let Us Attack|
If you happen to like blistering melodic punk tracks, then you should
check out this Attack In Black playlist! A Canadian punk/hardcore
band from the 2000's who softened up and went folk before they
recently disbanded. This music is ultimately epic as all get out.
|1||Attack In Black|
Take Back Compassion
|2||Attack In Black|
this must be one of my favorite attack in black songs. it starts with a great
attack, and turns into a heated punk rhythm. the chorus involves a perfectly
melodic riff which tickles the ear. the riffs here are a first indication of how
the band's sound was destined to transform toward maturity.
|4||Scene For Sale|
the subject of this song is about a crumbling music scene in southern
Ontario. a confused group of youth trying to fight for their musical identity.
the opening riff of this song makes the track seem as though it was a
continuation of scene for sale. i think this song comes after scene for sale
on their album, so i kept these two tracks in that order in this playlist. they
sound great together.
the soft intro to this song is a nice breath of fresh air from the previous
songs, but it still pics up almost right away. heavy rolling drums are
introduced and things seems to pick up but there is still more to build
before the song explodes into the verse. i love how these early attack in
black songs always have powerful verses and wicked hooks in the chorus.
the choruses usually being very melody centered with the support of a
sweet guitar line.
|7||Dance Of Discontent|
the verses of this song are crunchy, as well as the chorus. the yelling
somehow rubs you the right way while being gnarly and vicious. not the
pathetic screams of a scene band, but more of a triumphant roar being
mixed with a yell.
a really cool attack in black song structurally. this song starts off intense
but really mellows out near the end and sort of drifts off into a swaying
mindless wander around a few strummed chords.
|10||Resist And Desire|
