Defeater- Empty Days & Sleepless Nights

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Defeater's latest album Empty Days & Sleepless Nights starts off where the band left off with their debut album Travels , continuing the story of the two sons and their addict mother, with such lyrics as, "You touch her cold hand, your mother is gone. In front of her God, needle in her arm" (from the track At Peace). Defeater's narrative lyric styling is what separates them from a lof of bands out there now, while most bands discuss personal topics Defeater breach into a more strory telling approach in which each song is a chapter giving more insight on a character and moving the story along. The album comes to a hard-hitting conclusion with the track White Oak Doors, in which the album seemingly ends abruptly, yet that is just an end to one of the characters story. While not being a traditional hardcore band, and the album not being a traditional hardcore album, it is easy to see why Defeater are so widely accepted in the hardcore scene. Empty Days & Sleepless Nights is what the hardcore scene was in dire need of, a band with versatility for not only is this a hardcore album but it also contains 4 upbeat and catchy acoustic songs making this album one that you should not sleep on.

We Had A Deal- Three Songs

The Cold Front- Demo

Nails - Unsilent Death

I figured for my first review, I'd tackle one of my favorite LP's of last year; Unsilent Death by the Southern California band Nails. If you don't already know, Nails is the newest band from guitarist Todd Jones (Betrayed, Carry On, Internal Affairs, Terror), although Nails is a much different monster than any of his previous bands. While still a hardcore act at its core, there are very strong elements of other genres including grindcore and powerviolence.

The LP starts off with a blast and doesn't let up for its 14 minute duration. There is not a single track on this album that slows down enough for you to catch your breath, but that's not to say it's repetitive. As I stated before; while at its core Nails is a hardcore band, there are traces of early Napalm Death and Entombed in these songs.

The best part about Nails is their no bullshit approach to the music. There are no intro's, outro's, or interludes here: just fast, pissed off hardcore. The fast parts are fast, the breaks are heavy, and the lyrics are fucking pissed: "Bow to no man, no pig, no book of myths."

If you're into no frills, fast, heavy music do yourself a huge favor and check this band out.

Rating: 5/5

Rainfest- Full Lineup

The 5th annual RAIN FEST will take place May 27, 28, and 29 at NEUMOS in Seattle, Wa.
SIXES (last show)

This year we are excited to partner with our friends PANIC RECORDS. Friday will be the first annual Panic Records Showcase featuring bands from the Panic Family. More details will follow as our full lineup is announced.

About the Venue:

925 E. Pike St.
Seattle, WA 98122

With the Viaduct closing down we had to find a new spot to host Rain Fest 2011. We discussed many options and Neumos came out on top by a long shot. There will be all ages re-entry UNTIL 9PM, after that time there will be only re-entry for those 21+. If any of you were at or have watched the Trial DVD from 2005 then you will know what Neumos is like. Neumos is in the heart of Capital Hill, great location, great venue. We couldn’t be happier about this venue hosting Rain Fest. Be respectful to everyone working. Don’t be shitheads and fuck up a good thing!

The DVD from last year is being worked on. It is a process and will take some time so just be patient and bear with us. A trailer will be online very soon.

RAIN FEST IS SOLD OUT. WE WILL NOT BE SELLING ANYMORE TICKETS. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets and is going to be at Rain Fest. To anyone who didn't get tickets we are sorry but we had a limited number we could sell to.
