Signal To Noise

Ferret Music 30

Released on March 26, 2002


Born during the first summer of the Millennium, with ex-members of Policy and 1066, they are the future of this scene so many kids base their lives on. Not metal. Not indie rock. Not emo. Not punk rock. No genre could be used to describe this band exclusively. Influenced from each other? Yes, but not as a whole. Any band that can offer a sense of salvation to anyone, no matter what amount, is worth a listen. So here is what we offer: The Rise. They play with a style that is, on a very basic level, hardcore. Lots of ideas, more electronics. Getting down with keyboards, a piano, sequencers, samplers, this band is breaking ground on some interesting hardcore ideas.

These guys fucking rule, like techno-hardcore. The first song is one of the best songs i have ever heard. The only downside to it is some of the songs have just techno elctronic stuff on them so that kind of sucks. But if you like hardcore, refused, or something new, get this cd now!!!!

These guys are completely different than the norm. Techno and Hardcore is a good twist. I'm not even a fan of techno but these guys were amazing so if you haven't heard them yet check their video on ferret and buy their other album since its also amazing.

Not a hell of a lot I can say about this album. It is as innovative as they come. It is as raw as they come. Very nicely heavy. Did I say innovative? Every song on this album is extremely well written and well mixed. Someone said the vocals were mixed too loudly, but that's how hardcore music is supposed to sound. If you are a fan of hardcore music, and you are willing to expand your mind just a little, then this album is for you!

Fans of Refused, Sadaharu, and The Plot To Blow Up the Eifell Tower, take note. If this record in absent from your record collection purchase it at the nearest oppertunity. Basically this album is Refused with keyboards and experimental electronica bits that you never see coming and fit remarkabley well with the scream-infused hardcore that is the dominant sound on this excellent record. Kudos to The Rise for sticking their collective neck out there and trying something new in a scene that rarely excepts inovation.

"What good is a mechanical musician?" an audio sample asks in "The Concept of Transience", the 5th song on The Rise's debut album. Well, when its in the control of The Rise, the answer is that it can f**k with your head and leave you begging for more.

The Rise really caught my attention when I ran across this album's infectious first cut, "The Fallacy of Retrospective Determinism", on Audiogalaxy many many moons ago. If you want to check it out for yourself, its still there (and a good quality encoded mp3 at that). The synth intro sets the menacing dark tone that will follow for the remainder of the disk.

There's an obvious influence from bands crossing the electronica-hardcore genres, probably most notably Refused. However, don't automatically pass them off as a rip-off band, because these guys have a lot to offer in their own right. Heavy crunches of guitars, interspersed in all the right places with samples, feedback, and the jarring beats and swerving synth layers. This is one of those albums that sounds mind blowing through headphones.

Standout tracks are "Constructive Criticism For A Predetermined Body Type", "An Automated Response if You Will", and "Goals Methodology Assessment" which is the longest and perhaps the most ambitious track in terms of genre-blending (or bending?).

Singer, Coco (yes, Coco - nickname for Cory if I'm not mistaken) takes not the screamy road that oh so many bands are doing these days. Instead, he opts for a more barking and yet coherent brand of vocals, sometimes altered with audio trickery, but staying true to the way he sounds live (however I've only seen footage, never in person).

The songs carry a theme of warning over humanity's dependence on technology, and a need to overcome this stranglehold. The bands ironic use of beats, electronics, and other assorted doo-hickeys to express its meaning was not lost on me.

Overall, I really like where this band is going, and can see greatness in their future. However, if you like your hardcore without that dance s**t f**king it up, I'd avoid this like the plague.

This is without a doubt the best album I have heard in a long time. The keyboards add an extra dimension to the heavy guitars and they work so well together, especially towards the end of track 5, "The Concept Of Transience".

Not a band to embrace the current trend of scream-sing vocals, The Rise's vocalist shouts passionately throughout, which seems to work better in my opinion, without the keyboards & samples they would be a straight-edge hardcore band, but I for one think the keyboards are excellent.

They don't sound like anything I have ever heard before directly, but they have a hint of Nine Inch Nails about them at times, which can only be a good thing.

Buy it now, thank me later!

I saw the band when they were still called "Teresa Banks Profiles" and got the 7" they had put out then too, I loved that 7" and so I figuire I will love the CD too. Well, I was wrong. The whole album seemed over produced, they even went back and rerecorded the songs from the 7" and made them sound worse. They got new members (and Coco changed his name to Cory!) and what sounded like some new synths, but I just think the band's not as great as they used to be. This band will probably become very big because they're original, but this album seemed to me like a step in the wrong direction. I think if I hadn't heard anything by them before this album they might have gotten a higher score, but for not reaching full potential, they get a 2.

well, i had heard comparisons ro refused, but these guys are not refused. this is weak. the songs dont flow, they are too choppy, and the vocals are mixed too loud. not very impressive. go buy refused instead.
