Suicide Note - Empty Rooms
Ode to the old school, Suicide Note is more than just a shockingly titled artist name. They are a justified comparison to those in the Try If You Like section off to the right. Though more of a melodic sounding punk, its eery how gorgeous they transistion 70's I Don't Give a F*ck into 21st century We Don't Give A F*ck. Yes as you can tell and as I've said in many Punk release reviews, I'm not the most credible punk critic. It's really the lack of genre reviewing that gives me an edge up on most critics of the sound. Chicago, IL's Suicide Note may not like it as their 2008 release Empty Rooms is on the chopping block, but we don't give a f*ck.
Now, Now!!! Let's not start making judgements,. just observations. Often times the vocals of Punk can get lost in the ears of listeners. Dig deeper here on tracks like Analog Future or No Waves and I feel it to be more of an unlimited realm of accompanying rhythm with a terrific blending of distortion and instrumentation. More than just the oftenly aforementioned Punk sound, these guys have a redundantly entertaining ability to find a chord and drive it straight into the ground, such as tracks like New Eyes. Then its tacks light eight "Division Of Me" which have a blistering pace and simply attack without thought towards rules of musical engagement. With a universal understanding towards their instrumental writing, regardless of my taste, Suicide Note is an artist to look out for in 2008/2009.
