Debut album from Swedish metalhardcore band Jesaiah. You can tell that they have matured since their start in 2006-2007, just comparing the EP "Building Bunkers, Burning Bridges" to "Et Tu, Hope" is a clear sign of how much they have evolved in a music sense. The album is well-produced and has a sound I haven't heard in a long time by being so energy rich yet maintaining its raw beauty. The beauty is created when the "post-rock" breaks out in the metal songs. You can't see it coming, but when it comes; it grabs hold of you and your perception of Swedish metal will never be the same again.
Jesaiah's "Et Tu, Hope" makes clear distance from today's Swedish metal and hardcore bands, as they have created an album that is heavy but same time it keep its delightful sound with a mix of lyrics from the dark side of life. Comes in a real nice eko packaging with a very well designed layout and artwork.
