Touché Amoré - Is Survived By

Touché Amoré - Is Survived By
Record Label: Deathwish Inc
Release Date: September 24, 2013


Is it just me or does the lead singer sound exactly like the lead singer from La Dispute? Maybe the difference between the two is the fact that this one, Jeremy Bolm screams a lot more. Anyway, onto the music and my review, this is a great album. "Praise/Love" ends where "Anyone/Anything" begins which leads this album off to a nice and solid start.

Touché Amoré sound a bit panicked throughout the whole album. I just couldn't help but notice that "DNA," "Steps" and "Blue Angel" come off as too fast, too rushed to give off the intended tone that they were going for.

Is Survived By is full of smooth guitar riffs and some solid drumming that are prominent in songs "To Write Content" and "Is Survived By" that leave an odd sense of perfection. For the most part, vocals sound very strong and full of emotion that holds an intense amount of power with such sad lyrics.

Overall, I really enjoyed this! Their music is fresh and although they're quickly getting attention that they deserve, they don't seem to succumb to it as much as I would have expected them to which I must respect them for. My favourite songs on this album are: "To Write Content," "Social Caterpillar," "Non Fiction," and "Is Survived By." I recommend this to anyone who enjoys more underground hardcore bands.

Most hardcore just sounds the same to me. But these guys stand out for their great production, amazing talent all around, and great lyrics
