Rwake - If you walk before you crawl you crawl before you die

This band is strange.... gloomy.... and dirty. It seriously makes me want to throw myself down a flight of steps for fun the more I listen to it. They are obviously very talented musicians... and because I can't really figure out what genre to throw them in, I'll file this under "rock". They lyrics are pretty whacked as well.. dealign with time, space, the devil, all the shit that will drive someone insane. And from listening to this... there's a good chance these guys are insane.

The guitar work is simple and sludgy at times, and complex solos intertwining with the simple gloom at others to create an eerie chaotic explosion of filth.

That's about all I can muster to say about this band.... They're pretty bonkers... if you want to hear what they sound like I will be posting an mp3 soon.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

All the fags that bitched about the Atreyu and Alexisonfire reviews should check out this band to hear something good.

I don't know if I like this better than their previous work, but it's definitely awesome. I've been listening to it a lot lately.

It's funny how they started to sound like Mastodon on this album. This album is like Mastodon with a sludgier feel and deeper vocals.

They played here last Friday, but it was 21+.
