Poison The Well In Studio!!!!

Got an email from a friend of mine that works at Cypress Studio in Miami, and he informed me that the post-hardcore act entered the studio yesterday to re-record some previous unreleased tracks from the days of TOOD to YCBY. Can't wait to hear. Meanwhile, this is my ranking of PTW, except for I/III / II/III / III/III.

Distance Makes the Heart Grow Fonder


The only release with vocalist with former frontman Aryeh Lehrer, this shows the potential the band had. As one of the acts included in the initial wave of metalcore, this proved to be a worthy release, albeit not their best.
5Poison the Well
Tear from the Red


The only release after their EP that I just can't listen to all the way through. I do however think one of their best all around tracks is "Botchla," which has some beautiful memories combined with crushing guitar work and the aural assault from Jeff.

Versions


Their most underrated and under-appreciated album, the experimentation on this is ace. From the inclusion of ambient music to flutes, this really shows that PTW isn't afraid of anything.
3Poison the Well
The Tropic Rot


As heavy as PTW can be, this release showed the beauty beneath their rough exterior. It delves more into the world of post-hardcore, and Jeff really shows his prowess on the mic.

You Come Before You


PTW was always a metalcore band up to this, but then began to show how different they could truly be. Even though the Tropic Rot is the culmination of a lot of hard work and progression, this stands as probably their best all together album.
1Poison the Well
The Opposite of December


I know it's not as varied nor as good as their later releases, but I love this album for the nostalgia. It reminds me of my more hectic days, as well as the sheer thrill I got from the intensity of the album. The opener is a monster, as well as "Slit Paper Wrists."
