For The Fallen Dream - Back Burner
Back Burner being their third studio album (with their 3 self released EPs, and previous 2 studio albums) which has gotten the most well known and popular of all their work, though I have yet to listen to all their previous work.
Back Burner is quite a metalcore album but does have elements of melodic hardcore, which is a nice slight difference for me. The songs include both clean and screaming vocals, screaming with not much variation, but suits the songs well. The songs tend to seem to have a sort of life struggles and relationship theme, which is executed quite well, and actually quite motivational. So lyrically it is very nice, and I suits the songs perfectly.
Guitars are done very well along with drums, the way the guitars have been mixed allows the bass to be heard and compliment the guitars and the drums bring great rhythm to the songs. The songs are completely that technical, more melodic as the fit the genre, but well written and sounds really nice.
Overall the album is a great album which after a month, I still listen to it. The songs are great and motivational, clean vocals are great, guitars are well written, mixing is done well. It is just a really nice album and I would recommend checknig them out and hopefully see them live.
