This Day Forward-The Transient Effects Of Light On Water
This Day Forward is a metalcore band from Philadelphia. This album came out in 2000 and was released by Eulogy Recordings. I just heard this album very recently so I am late to the party. The early 2000's was a great time for metalcore so it was easy to miss some albums. The album artwork is strange and abstract like the Snapcase Lookinglasself album cover. This Day Forward is known as one of the best metalcore bands of the early 2000's. So what do I think? I think they are a really amazing band. This album has everything you could want in a metalcore album. It has sick brutal screaming and some great beautiful singing. These guys play music so well that they make it sound easy. The band members could play in a modern classical band that is how good they are. The screaming and growling vocals are so powerful that they sound like someone stole a locomotive and proceeded to run down everybody in a five mile radius. The guitar playing is astounding. The guitars sound like planes crashing into each other at maximum speed. They have beautiful interludes that go straight into brutal mosh parts. This should make for some awesome hardcore dancing. The drummer is just destroying his drum set and he sounds like a master killer that is ready to take out hundreds with his deadly sword. His growling is so vicious that it can attack you like a hyena with a horrible case of rabies. What makes this band so special is that they have the dynamics to go from such heaviness in the vocals and the music to such beauty in the music and the singing at the drop of a hat. It is really very impressive. I would have to go as far as to say that if you like metalcore you are going to absolutely love this album. My final take is that this album has something for everyone. I do believe this could be one of the best metalcore albums of the early 2000's. During that time they had so many amazing hardcore albums come out and this was one of them. Thanks. Kevin
