Atreyu Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses

(Victory)

A death catching display of dynamic hardcore and technical brilliance, Atreyu, on their debut record, does not disappoint. Combining the best of semi-metallic Emo-core with punk pride they carry a range and intensity on their shoulders that'll set the tone for others to follow.

As the title indicates, their words are as evocative as is their music; somber, intense, haunting and daunting before emerging victorious by way of mold-breaking melodic hooks and opposing dark into light vocal forces that lends another level of focus to already blockbuster arrangements.

The outstanding attribute to Atreyu's music is it doesn't take a Berkeley school grad to comprehend all that's taking place around them -- the music's complex, not convoluted, and their usually mid-paced tempos are arrived as smoothly where as if by design the reigns are pulled in before approaching the edge of egoism. "Suicide Notes…" conjures mind’s eye images of depressive angst with melancholic depth and metal-flown guitar scales-an astonishing piece of work easy to admire, difficult to tame.
