Death By Stereo have been around for some time now but I don’t recall ever listening to them until now. Judging from this album, I might have to check out Death By Stereo’s earlier albums. They really seem to be on top of their game, and perfected their sound. The music is too heavy to be considered punk rock, and not wimpy enough to be in the “post-hardcore” genre I think. Well if these guys are considered “post-hardcore,” I hate myself for liking them. The vocals are intense, but I like when he’s screaming more and the guitarists aren’t afraid to play around with solos and breakdowns.

The third track is great, and even has some catchy clapping in the chorus. The fourth song is slow and is a nice change from the other songs on the album. Though, fans might think it’s a little girlie but I think it sounds okay. It’s kind of too radio-friendly for the band. There’s other songs on here that are just as good and exciting. If you like heavy hardcore/punk, check out Death By Stereo’s newest album!

Bottom Line: I thought I was going to hate this but I ended up liking this album.
