The first song kicks in with a heavy guitar overdrive and a melody that makes me think of something between early Promise Ring and Piebald. A slow dip into mellow dynamics, and the vocals come out, and wrap around your heart. The guitars kick in again and the barbed wire shoots out. Lyrical bursts of heartache fragments push against the wall of noise, and you can’t breathe until the band gets quiet.
