The Bled - Pass The Flask (2003)

Borrowing liberally from Converge, and the "Songs to Fan the Flames"-era Refused, and infusing it with an eerie sense of melody, Pass the Flask is a real accomplishment. The band dabbles with severe tempo changes, moving from over the top chaos to ringing guitars and mumbled vocals, all without falling into the dreaded emo-core trap. To put it in perspective, if most emo-core is crying on the phone to your ex-girlfriend, this is screaming alone in your room and planning your revenge.

    Get the reissue fool, shit's superior:

    Includes all the orignal tracks with the album and a ton of unreleased/older tracks. The older ones are real knockouts too; My Cyanide Catharsis is probably my personal favorite track on the album.

  3. Oh man, I used to love this album. Nostalgia time!
