A Wilhelm Scream ‎–Mute Print cd

SKU: Cd 43c Categories: , ,


Hailing from the Boston area, A Wilhelm Scream forges intricate, metal guitar riffs into brilliant pop songs, and easily makes the best melodic hardcore/punk on the East Coast. A Wilhelm Scream is equal parts Hot Water Music and Good Riddance, the band rips through 11 tracks and never looks back. This is melodic punk rock with influences all across the board, wrapped up into one of the best half hours of 2004. The tempos are breakneck, the harmonies are crystal clear, the metal riffing isn’t cliche, the palm muting is perfect, the breakdowns are inventive – I could go on all day. Common themes running through the album include violence and drinking, and the consequences of both. The album’s peak is “The Rip”, but other standout tracks include “Anchor End” and “Retiring,” all three being excellent examples of all the qualities I listed in the prior paragraph. Nothing here sounds trite, nor do you ever get the feeling that “this has been done before.” A Wilhelm Scream is poised to be 2004’s Strike Anywhere or Rise Against – two bands that prior to their latest albums, showed massive amounts of potential and were poised to break nationally; once released both became the new “hot” band on the tips of everyone’s tongues. Mute Print is such a solid, original album that there is no reason A Wilhelm Scream shouldn’t blow up. This record will end up becoming one of the staples on “Best Of 2004” lists worldwide. It’s not 100% perfect, but it’s damn close. For fans of Thrice, Hot Water Music and Bad Religion.
