A Static Lullaby is a melodic hardcore band with so much energy, so much passion and so much talent, there is hardly even a way to even accurately, in words, describe the depth of musical ability included in …And Don’t Forget to breathe, released on Ferret Records
From the same label that originally brought us Stretch Armstrong, A Static Lullaby has just as much promise, and a little bit of the same sound. The sound of this album clearly has influences from the modern “screamo” scene from bands like Thursday, however melodic hardcore would probably be the best genre to throw these guys into as they more readily can be compared to bands like Shai Hulud and Poison the Well.
Distinct and penetrating vocals coupled with the heaviness and destruction of the guitars and the timeliness and syncopation of the drums makes for an ear pleasing, body thrashing experience that most in the hardcore scene can relate to. A great album—a great band—a great record label.
Objectionable Content- A
Overall Album- A+ (Yes, my first A+ is give to these guys. With the absence of ZAO, and with all of the other hardcore bands growing up and becoming “emo”, it is nice to see a fresh band that knows what they are doing, and are as passionate about it as these guys are. Great album.)
