This St. Louis-bred five piece's Epitaph debut is an artistic triumph in every sense. The beloved, million-selling band's third studio album is their finest, building on the strength of past accomplishments. Known for their kinetic live shows and ridiculously catchy songs, Story Of The Year have always been famously ballsy in their mixing of glossy production, big rock hooks, and honeyed melodies with searing metal riffs and intense screaming. The band has garnered a passionate following, thanks in large part to lead singer Dan Marsala's signature vocal style and heartfelt lyrics.

The record exeeded my expectation, Your can hear melodies of "Page Avenue" and Huge guitar riffs of "In the wake of determination". The latest effort from SOTY is a valient one, The riff to the opening track "choose your fate" absolutly crushes. I wasn't expecting much from this record but it is awesome, it leans more on the "In the wake" side which is what I prefer, I thought "page" was a little weak, A little to "girlie". Don't get me wrong this album still isn't like "real" metal but it has its points.
