Petitioning The Empty Sky

possibly the best crossover thrash album ever made
Petitioning the Empty Sky

The Saddest Day: Sets up the tone of the album with Bannon's manic shouts and unforgettable riffage. The quiet section in the middle of the song provides a well-needed break after and before the relentless intensity. Might even be the band's best song. "EVERY TIME YOU JUSTIFY, ANOTHER GOOD IN YOU DIES!"
Petitioning the Empty Sky

Color Me Blood Red: A closer that won't leave you cold. Just like The Saddest Day, it's full of superb riffs and ends the album with a bang. "PLEASE LOVE, JUST COME HOME AGAIN!"
Petitioning the Empty Sky

Farewell Note to This City: Arguably the most "epic" and easily the most melodic song on the album and shows the band's ability to write slower, less aggressive songs. The bassline slays so hard.
Petitioning the Empty Sky

Dead: Has one of the most crushing riffs in the history of the band. Another notable thing about this song is Bannon's insane, almost growling vocals. "DEEEEEEEEEEEAD!"
Petitioning the Empty Sky

Forsaken: A very fitting follow-up to The Saddest Day, although not quite as memorable which is why this song is often overshadowed by it. Still heavy and aggressive as hell. "AND I CARRY ON!"
Petitioning the Empty Sky

Shingles: One of the more technical songs on the album as well as one of the most chaotic. Another intense and furious track. "gun in my mouth, I PRAY FOR THE SUNSHINE!"
Petitioning the Empty Sky

Buried But Breathing: An incredibly underrated tune. It's short but sweet, and features a fantastic shout-along which makes up for the short length. "BURIED BUT BREATHING, THESE DEVILS SWEEP!"
Petitioning the Empty Sky

Albatross: The only song that lacks what makes the other songs so powerful. It's mostly fast and very hardcore but ends with what is probably the softest moment on the album. "FIVE LIVES DEAD AND GONE, DEAD AND GONE, DEAD AND GONE!"
