For The Mathematics - For The Mathematics
At thrashing speeds of hard rock energy balled together, For The Mathematics have crafted a recording that resembles a ball of industrial strength rubber band's. The result here is a string progression that bounces up and down between the recording studio floor and ceiling.
For The Mathematics confronts an Emo instrumentation writing skill, bouncing so much further. For instance, "Delay The Fiasco" starts with a low but constant bass line. A few reps later, we go straight into a high pitched feathering of a subtle electric guitar. Once the drums take the piece into full flow, vocal content and rhythm becomes the headstone.
"Bent Of The Topography" begins with an echoed distorted six-string atmosphere, then quickly the pace once again moves to a full stream 80 mph feel. They saved the best for last though as track seven "The New Science", comes blistering and never stops. Nothing more than simplicity at warp speeds, all the instrumentation forms an amazing bubble to protect the distorted chorus. The song just rings out all the way, once again following a creepy little keyboard backbone.
With artists such as For The Mathematics, it's just always been difficult for me to keep from losing my grip on the energy. At no point during this album did I become bored of the genre monster they have here. Suicidal Tendencies, Reveille, Armsbendback, and Alexisonfire all come to mind as bands who these guys could share the live stage with. As long as these guys keep up the arithmetic, we should all be on the look out.
