Artist Of The Week - Anchor & Braille

It's been about three years since we've gotten an album from Anchor & Braille, the indie side project of Anberlin's Stephen Christian, but this week, on July 31st, the band's sophomore album will be released. The Quiet Life is a collection of haunting melodies and catchy percussion, certainly a maturation of sound since 2009's Felt. The Quiet Life is available now in stores and online through Tooth & Nail Records.

Artist: Before Their Eyes
Album: Untouchable
Release Date: 3/9/10
Label: Rise Records

To be honest, I had never really heard of Before Their Eyes prior to their third studio release Untouchable. What I found was an honest surprise. They have a very clean and polished post-hardcore sound at times, with high energy pop rock/pop punk at other times. The mix comes out smooth for a solid album.

The opening screams of "Hey Dude!" start the album off with a direct post-hardcore sound, that declares "I'm not afraid of death, they can't control me now." Following up are batch of pop punk tracks such as the first single "Sing To Me" and the impacting song "Not Alone," which contains a message of hope that we're not alone and to strive past our struggles. Of the heavier tracks, the highlight comes with "Rick Vs Nick," containing strong yells and screams from vocalist Nick Moore, who has recently departed with BTE.

Rating: 7/10 After listening to Before Their Eyes, a few things are heard. They are not the strongest post-hardcore band out there, but certainly do have some talent. I'm glad that I discovered Untouchable from BTE, which mixes a few different sounds together for a good outcome.

  1. Hey Dude!
  2. Sing To Me
  3. Not Alone
  4. Love Is Misery
  5. My Match, Your Fire
  6. Start With Today
  7. Bulletproof
  8. Finding A Way
  9. Rick Vs Nice
  10. Hell or High Water
  11. Start With Today (Acoustic)
