Angel Eyes


Mylene Sheath 19

Released on July 13, 2010


In a day when metal and hardcore has an endless litany of sub-genres tagged on it left and right, Chicago, IL's ANGEL EYES effortlessly and boldly defy genre classification and simple explanation. Midwestern, their newest creation, is an album of moral indignation, a call to arms in a declining economy. It's relatable to any of us that have struggled and fought and clawed over these past few years only to end up having to struggle harder in the end, with no end to the worrying in sight.

Apocalyptic in scope, Midwestern is a four part movement of brutal realism that plays over in your head long after listening. The sounds resonate, the lyrics and vocals disturb, and the intention is honest and personal. There's still a comfort and hope in the unsettling atmosphere that the album conjures up, however, because it is comforting to know that others feel this way and we are not alone in the desolate struggle ahead. If you combine the cathartic nature of mid-'90s hardcore acts such as His Hero Is Gone and In/Humanity, with the contemporary sludge of Neurosis and the atmospheric elements of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, toss in an unhealthy, complete and utter obsession with Ennio Morricone's soundtracks to the Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns of the '60s & '70s (in fact, the bands' name,"ANGEL EYES" is actually taken from the name of Lee Van Cleef's totally badass character in "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly"), then you're starting to get an idea of what Midwestern sounds like.
