Blessthefall: His Last Walk
1

Sound — 9
I was first introduced to this band by my cousin, and first off I wanna say I don't listen to much hardcore bands because the all sound the same. Bur when I heard these guys, it sounded unique and different from other bands. The vocalist has a soft singing voice but then a good solid scream; it's kind of hard to believe that he's the same guy that sings and screams. BlessTheFall is a Christian band, so of course there is no cursing on the album. The album itself has a religious feel to it, but it doesnt't overwhelm you with their beliefs. Overall, the sound is good with only a few minor flaws here and there.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics on the album are amazing, to say the least. Although you probably wont understand a lot of them, they have a deep meaning in most of the songs. For example, their song "Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad" is about a girl that got raped, and "Higinia" is about the vocalists grandma. Some people will think, wow that's kinda lame, but you just have to listen to it and the songs will stick to you. There is a few references to God in a couple of songs, but the only song that is focused on that aspect is the last song, "His Last Walk".

Overall Impression — 9
This CD is Blessthefalls first LP, and it is a great start, with the amazing lyrics to the good guitar riffs. The songs that stick out to me are the 2 singles, Higinia and Guys Like You Make Us Look Bad. Both of them have deep lyrical meaning and the riffs are just great. Besides those, my 2 favorite tracks are Black Rose Dying and Wait for Tomorrow. Both have the best guitar riffs IMO and just stand above the rest. Although I have said a lot of good things about the album, there are some bad. The guitar riffs in 1 or 2 songs sound kind of, off, compared to the rest of the album. If this album got stolen/lost, yes I would grab another copy because they're a great band, and great people (I met them at Warped Tour '07 San Diego).

    They come from my state. IMO, they're just another trendy scene band playing "hardcore" with a Christian tag on it. Nothing special.

    I heard from a lot of people that the band said they do not consider themselves a Christian band =X Eitehr way they are really good and I like them a lot.

    I'm glad someone finally reviewed this, I love the band, I went to warped tour this year just to see them. Good show, regardless of me not agreeing with the strong Christian influences.

    Hmm... I might do a review on this albulm when I get a chance, I thought there already was one. Great band, been listening to them for a long time, since they first came on the scene (I live in AZ, where they're from).

    I saw them in buffalo too. I couldn't really hear them clearly from where I was. Maybe it's just me, but the sound on the hurley stage was awful. I would have fired the sound guy.

    Side note, my favorite songs are Black Rose Dying and Guys Like you and Message to the Unknown I came up with a riff the other day that sounds like the main one in Wait for Tommorrow I wish I could use it.
