Album Review: Anathema – The Optimist

Anathema began their career all the way back in the 90s as, believe it or not, a doom metal band touring with the likes of Cannibal Corpse. They have come a stellar long way. The Liverpool, England band have had multiple lineup changes and have experimented with multiple sounds moving from their metal beginnings to a progressive, atmospheric, often anthemic style.

Pierce the Veil Debuts New Music Video

Floral and Fading – New Music from Pierce the Veil

Pierce the Veil recently debuted a music video for their new, and charming as hell, pop punk track, “Floral and Fading”. It’s a classic emo hit that might seem shockingly overproduced and synthy if you aren’t used to Fearless Records, but there is something to be said for that sticky sweet and nostalgic 3rd wave emo sound. Lighthearted delivery of suicidal lyrics, a music video that nods to “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, and the never forgotten “woah-oh” laced breakdown together are oddly classic at this point.

The Yugos – Ingenue

Ingenue assaults your headphones as a long rush of fuzz and distortion but gradually transforms into a slick indie rock offering. The song is a meandering track that demands attention and delivers a creative vibe much different than anything else on the markets these days.  At times, I felt like I had my ass parked on a huge bass speaker in the corner of the dance floor at The Revival in Philadelphia listening to a killer new wave dance party.
