Here are our new album reviews for today:
A Voice Like Rhetoric - Ethos (Tom Good)
What happens when listenability meets originality, and a band creates for the sake of intelligent expression? A Voice Like Rhetoric, four gentlemen inhabiting North Western Pennsylvania, has dug deep and found their niche in a sub-generalized genre of a music scene. They have been described as technical/ post hardcore/ math rock. With such influences as; At the Drive-In, Botch, Cursive, Faraquet, Minus the Bear, and Q and Not U, A Voice Like Rhetoric has started to open both ears and eyes among onlookers.
Their highly anticipated full length debut, "Ethos", now marks an unprecedented new outlook of writing music for A Voice Like Rhetoric.
Ethos is a mix of technical and harmonizing guitar work, fast tempoed percussion, granular bass tone, and sing-screamy vocals. It is somewhere between thinking differently and composing very unconventionally conventional music. A Voice Like Rhetoric's, Ethos, takes influence and creates extremely listenable originality. Its like a punch in the face.
