0 of 3 thought this review was well written
I'd always liked Aussies hardcore acts but for some reason I'd never gotten into Carpathian. Anyway, my friend gave me a mix cd and he put this whole album on there. It was so good that I listened to it almost everyday. Then i found out they've got a new album coming out! but back to this cd.
It starts off with an intro which is a guy talking about political moshing. Then it breaks into "Don't have my back" which is not their best but still a great, hard song.
Then comes the one of the best song on the album (in my opion) "Holding hands is for girls" starts with a little drum solo that sounds like it's done in someones garage and then it hots you right in the face with a great guitar riff and brutal singing. There is an amazing breakdown and then a chant that sticks in my head. A Great song.
After that, you think it can't get any better.... then it does. If looks could kill is probably the most metalcore song on the album including some lyrics sung by I Killed The Prom Queens guitarist.
Next up in "Snareroll" a great song with one line that is all I have to say "You won't forget me"
Now we have "Kiss the Rings" it does sound a bit familiar but still a great track. It's personally one of the worst on the album but it's still great, the albums just absolutely awsome.
"Tommy Dollars likes my band" is a good choice for a finishing track. Tommy Dollars is a guy in melbourne who loves Carpathian apparently.
Anyway, that's it. I hoped you liked my review and for anyone who likes hardcore or even metalcore, i strongly encourage you to buy this album. The stand-out tracks on the album would have to be:
Holding Hands Is For Girls
If Looks Could Kill
My overall rating of this album is a 4.5.
