The Air I Breathe - Great Faith In Fools

The newly signed to rise records band "The Air I Breathe" have recently released their first album "Great Faith In Fools". This new growing band has been labelled as "metalcore". The band features screams with clean vocals and very technical written songs. The guitarists in this band use the technique of sweeps nearly in all their song (guitarists will understand, aka it is difficult). As with being "metalcore" the band features breakdowns. The thing I don't like is that with this sort of style there isn't much difference in the screams. And the mixing of the songs do not sound incredibly great as other bands (though I am comparing bands that have released their second album) and because of this I feel it lets down the incredibly respect writing of the songs. When the sweeps are done they feel they do not have enough emphasis in the track to really be noticed. But the songs are incredibly technical, they are heavy and sound really bright. They are also new to this so time will tell if they mold into a really creative band, I just hope they never drop their writing style. So how I see it, great band with good songs, but needs better mixing to bring out the technical writing of the guitar and vocals.

The Air I Breathe - Great Faith In Fools      7.5/10

Take This To Heart. A good example of their style.

You are right sir, They are kinda typical nowadays. But yes the guitar is clean and is pretty good since I my self play guitar I say it is hard. And the drums are pretty typical but not bad. I still see a better option than having typical beat. It's probably just me, I just want new genre? I don't know lol.

Y'know, I really dislike screaming and squeemo genres of music. Hell, anything -core I am liable to simply hate simply because they call themselves that.

On the other hand, I will ALWAYS respect the technical aspects of the guitarwork and percussions and these guys? The screaming may sound like every single band in the genre, but maaan...

These guys don't just kick ass, they whomp on them guitars!

pretty good screamo!

Children of Bodom on cocaine. nice. A bit screamo, and it's definetly not for me. However, technically they do good work. Guitarwork sublime, drums playing in the pocket- and that's all.

Clean, but not groundbreaking. I agree completely. Not terrible.
