Consider the Thief - Soldiers and Saints
Record Label: None
Release Date: April 14, 2008
Consider The Thief started off their career in a positive way with the album Soldiers and Saints EP. This mostly upbeat, yet with some pace change, hardcore album was a perfect way for the band to begin. The heavy drums, catchy guitar riffs, solid singing, and great screaming all mixed perfectly together to create a stellar musical album.
The song that must have special attention drawn to it is "Between Man and Machine." This song appeals to anyone, beginning with an enlightening guitar riff beautifully mixing together with an enjoyable drum beat. The song then slows down with creative sound effects, and then the screaming begins. The main screamer is accompanied by singing in the background and the two just work perfectly together. As the song progresses it just gets better and better, with a great buildup leading to the last two epic minutes of the song. The ending of this song is one that is hard to get out of your head, and it is very possible that you will be singing it over and over all day long.
The rest of Consider The Thief's Soldiers and Saints EP continues on to be just as enjoyable. They stay on the same amazing track that they set with the first two songs. Consider The Thief began this album with a bang, and finished off the same way without any let-downs in between. This is a stellar EP released by Consider The Thief and it is strongly recommended that if you are looking for hardcore music or just something to pump you up. If that's the case, then Soldiers and Saints EP is exactly what you are looking for.
I haven't listened to this CD yet; I keep meaning to, but just haven't gotten around to it. Good review though, maybe I'll take a listen in the not too distant future. Also, thank you for NOT mentioning Dance Gavin Dance.
you guys are welcome for not mentioning Dance Gavin Dance. And I had trouble thinking of a Recommended if You Like, but my friends and I all love those bands, especially Chiodos, and we all really liked this album.
