Atreyu - The Curse

Posted on Saturday, September 04, 2010

What can you say about Atreyu? You really have to hand it to Orange County’s Metalcore magicians. With all the success generated by 2002’s Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses, getting radio airplay, a slot on this year’s Ozzfest, and just the overall hype surrounding this album, you couldn’t be blamed for being a tad concerned about the direction they would go with this one. Well, silly us for worrying, the truth is they’ve gotten even heavier. The sound is bigger, the playing is tighter, the songs are more dynamic, and the lyrics are as bitter as the finest dark chocolate. Each song comes equipped with a heartfelt chorus so potently memorable that it transcends space and time. In summary, this album achieves a masterful balance of rage, melody, and rhythm not likely to be contested anytime soon. Consider the bar raised for 2004.
