The Sorrow - Misery Escape Award winner

The Sorrow
Misery Escape
by CJ "Music God" Plain at 24 January 2013, 2:38 PM

THE SORROW was a new band to me going into this review. I will admit that I have not always been the biggest fan of the newer Metalcore style bands breaking the scene. I always approach newer bands with a bit of cynical. THE SORROW quickly made that go away though. This is a really great album to hear with big dynamics and a good mixture of sounds. This album made me go back and check out the earlier releases by them.

The vocals of Matze walk a fine line between heavy screaming and beautiful melodic parts. The guitars are well balanced between the heavy breakdowns and the melodies as well. The songs work on a grand scale because of this balance. I realize that this may not be to everyone's liking but hey, I'm the one writing here so you only get my opinion.

Overall this is a really masterful album that does go a long ways towards pushing this band even further into stardom. I definitely think I will be listening to them a lot more in the future and will be looking for them to tour near me.
