On Broken Wings play particularly tough metalcore. Plenty of mosh parts, rock parts, headbang parts (if you're into that kinda thing), and metal riffs. Some interesting vocals too, shared between an angry, high-pitched scream (think Converge), and low death metal growls (think Dying Fetus), with a little melodic singing thrown in for good measure. I was surprised a few times, when the low growls show up on guitar work that would normally showcase some singing for the sake of singing. A nice mixup. I liked it.
Some techno beats and samples are thrown in. There's a hidden track that's sure to surprise you, and a soundclip at the end that absolutely sent me rolling off my chair laughing. The lyrics feature your standard metal topics, "I hope the next time you slit your wrists it's not for show. None of us are necessary."
If you're into Converge, Glassjaw, Every Time I Die, 18 Visions, etc., I'd recommend this band. They're tough. Heavy heavy heavy.
Put this CD on and clear a space in your room. Now practice your mosh antics. You're gonna need em when On Broken Wings invade your city.
