Sound: Haste The Day is a Christian metalcore band from Carmel, Indiana. The album "When Everything Falls" is probably one of the greatest Christian metal albums released in recent years. Everything sounds tight on the album, from the guitars, drums, and bass. But really separates this album apart from the pack is the screaming. Jimmy Ryan uses a quite different approach to his vocals then most artists use today. They sound great, and can't really be described until heard. The clean vocals are also outstanding and help add to each song. Although there aren't too many innovations in the sound (besides the screaming, When Everything Falls is a tight, fast, awesome metal album. // 10

Lyrics: My overall impression of the lyrics would be that they are awesome and fit great with the music. They are not innovative, with themes of love, standing up for what you believe in, and lost love, but they fit well with the agression and style of the instruments. Jimmy Ryan pulls the lyrics off flawlessly, showing emotion in all of the songs. Overall, they are not innovative per say, but fit extremely well with the music, and there's nothing wrong with that. // 9

Overall Impression: With other Christian metal bands hitting the metal scene lately, there seems to be many artists to choose from. Haste the Day is a great choice. They are not innovative, but really bring a true metal sound with outstanding vocals and intrumental work. My favorite songs on the album are When Everything Falls and Fallen, but every song holds it's own just fine. If it were lost or stolen, I would definately replace it. Go buy this album! // 10
