As Cities Burn - Come Now Sleep (2007)

While the passionate scream-driven songs are long gone, the passion inherent in As Cities Burn’s music is still here. Cody Bonnette does a fine job of taking over vocal responsibilities, but the resulting record is much different than Son, I Loved You At Your Darkest. The album feels a lot more experimental, and isn’t quite as driven, taking its time on several occasions. Come Now Sleep is no less intense than its predecessor however, which is a testament to the musical integrity of these guys, considering the decreased number of screams from one album to the next. Come Now Sleep also intensifies the melodic sense that Son, I Loved You at Your Darkest subtly, but surely contained, with choruses that read like anthems to be chanted and repeated over and over again.

One Response so far.

  1. I liked Son, I Loved You At Your Darkest (even though it was Christian/emo as fuck). I'll download this album, thanks for posting it
