Just ran across this old review...these guys are from my home state and back when I was still going to a lot of shows, I got to see them regularly opening for bigger bands. They definitely don't get enough appreciation.

Called To Arms. A new addition to the metalcore genre from Raleigh, North Carolina.

How Is It?

If your a big fan of the metalcore genre, your bound to love this EP. Although The Last Lament doesn't bring anything new to the table, its still a good release. Called To Arms brings you everything you'd expect from a metalcore band. The "pig-squealing" vocals can be annoying but the vocalist can also let out some nice growled vocals as well and is a very good mix with the impressive instrumentation of Called To Arms. The guitarists are outstanding on The Last Lament and have some nice solos and blood pumping leads. The drummer is also very good when you can hear him, because in most of this EP he seems like he's in the background. Called To Arms also incorporates keyboard parts and serves as a breather from The Last Lament ("Sixth Hour" and "Revelation"). The Last Lament has no structure to it what so ever and that's a good thing. Most metalcore bands follow the sing, scream, breakdown, repeat formula but not Called To Arms. Although some of the breakdowns may sound famiiar to you. The Last Lament is nothing changing the genre, but you should watch out for them in 2009.

why did NC have such amazing metal bands for awhile? BTBAM, Glass Casket, Called To Arms, Seneca...all of them shared a similar sound yet kept their own identity. Fucking STOKED to hear that a new CTA record is coming out now. fuck yea.

kinda reminds me of old Showdown before they got super Southern and gimmicky. i'm confused though. their profile says this EP was released in 2005, but I bought it when it was "released" in 2007. But I talked to someone else who says they had it in 2005. Did Tragic Re-Release this in 2007??
