August Burns Red


Solid State 12.2

Released on June 19, 2007


Returning after their critically acclaimed debut "Thrill Seeker," August Burns Red comes out with a dominating Sophomore release "Messengers." When asked to compare the two record guitarist JB Brubakker states "the new record is along the lines of what we did on Thrill Seeker, but it's faster, shreddier, and more riffs. We learned a lot since our last record and I think the song writing and musicianship is a lot stronger." These Lancaster, PA youngsters have accomplished on their first two records what it takes most bands to do in a lifetime, combining the Technical aspects of European Metal, the breakdowns of American Hardcore, and vocal stylings that leave no rock unturned in the Metal genre. Produced by Tue Madsen (Extol, The Haunted, Becoming The Archetype), this record promises to be the most brutal, yet polished venture yet for the band.

August Burns Red. Easily one of the best metalcore bands out there, christian or secular. First let me say, their previous release "Thrill Seeker" is absolutely brutal! Many classic songs. As you may know, the lead singer for ABR left the band before this record. Usually the vocalist is the worst person to replace, but I must say, this is one of the only vocalist replacements that worked. I still prefer the old vocalist, but this new guy pulls it off quite well, his voice is actually somewhat similar.

This album is brutal once again, but I have a few complaints. What is with the rhythm guitar? It's so bloody loud! It always stands out in the songs, this loud thumping open chord palm muting. It's like they crank it up as much as possible, and because of that I have a hard time listening to this album for more than 15 minutes.

The songs are slightly repetative, especially when you first listen to it, but nothing too bad. Except the breakdowns all have that bloody strange symbol, they get repetitive.

Its a pretty solid album, not as good as the previous, I still recommend it.

Unlike the previous reviewer, this was my first experience with August Burns Red, so I can't compare it to the previous album. Regardless I favor this album for it's sheer ferocity. I'm usually never very captured by drums, but the drummer of this band is phonemonal. Even so, the band in it's entirety stands out for it's level of technical expertise. The constant changes in rhythms and beats keep this from being too repetitive.

Wow, this cd really blows Thrill Seeker out of the water. I was a bit worried about what would come out of this having a new singer and bassist but they are both much better. I wasn't even sure if the singer was new at first but now I think it's part of the reason I like it better than Thrill Seeker. As far as the sound goes nothing has changed much, it is more technical at times as well as a lot heavier. But what really makes it stand out is that it's much tighter. Everyone needs to check this band out.
