Every Time I Die - New Junk Aesthetic

- 16 September 2009
Every Time I Die’s last two albums were aptly entitled Gutter Phenomenon and The Big Dirty, showcasing the American noiseniks’ gruff and salacious sound. Their latest effort is little different. An unpredictable smorgasbord of neck-whipping guitar battery and hardcore drum assaults, it nonetheless manages to maintain a melody. Standout track ‘Wanderlust’ migrates to their southern rock mentality, while ‘Turtles All The Way Down’ is an infectious smothering of swaying metal. And look out for a cameo from friend of the band and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz – sure to make the more ‘traditional’ fans of this band a little uneasy.
