An Anthology Of Dead Ends

Hydra Head 63

Released on October 14, 2014

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Botch is perhaps the greatest "heavy" band of the last 10 years. As with all Botch recordings this 6-song MCD is a monstrous concoction of metal, noise, indie rock guitar trickery, full of depth and minute secrets which slowly secrete themselves with successive listens. There is no question that part of what made Botch so great is their ability as players, but more important, and even more impressive perhaps, was the way they fit the pieces together - odd time signatures, seemingly impossible riffs made to sound easy, the occasional melodic passages, and devastating anthemic movements that managed to inspire hordes while simultaneously escaping the redundant simplicity of the conventional hardcore sing-a-long. An Anthology of Dead Ends is a testament to their will and intent, cementing their legacy as one of the untouchable greats, destined to influence generations to come.

(THIS IS MARK, NOT GINA) nothing to complain about when it comes to Botch's "An Anthology of Dead Ends" A truly great CD. Only 6 songs, but it holds it's own strong, with captivating messages, True angst, love, hate and every emotion that can be bottled up and let loose onto the the influence of a song, best part about this attribute is when you can hear the honesty and Botch screams it. Botch was the band that took this style of hardcore off the runway and into flight, so if you wanna feel like a part of that buy this album now. 5/5, no hesitation in that.

Songs 2,3,4 are some of my favorite Botch songs out there. The 1st song is just 14 seconds of nothing and 5 and 6 are pretty much just noises that drag along which i'm not a huge fan of. I highly suggest we are the romans before this but if you really enjoy some Botch like me then pick this up too

Im not the biggest metalcore fan, but when i do buy into it, its usually for something that stands out. and this stood out to me. alot of people told me that this would be alot different than most metalcore, well i really has no oustanding difference but there is alot more technical guitar parts here and there. they almost have parts where they remind me of refused. so if you like metalcore, check it out. if you just wanna taste of it that is good, check it out.

Maggie likes Botch. Ohhhhh does she ever. My one chance to see them came about 4 years ago, when they toured with Cave In. My brother and friends went, but did I? Nope. Now they're broken up. GAAAH! Just flipping fantastic artists. I suggest getting anything by these guys. Heavy, heavy stuff. YEAH!

Ok, if you are getting into hardcore, but are looking for the good stuff, it's RIGHT HERE. Imagine admiring the complexity and design of a snowflake while being blasted point blank in the face with a shotgun. Way too short for its own good, but good things come in small packages.

My god this is fantastic! It may only be 6 tracks (well 5 really, the first "song" is just 14 seconds, but they are all brutal (yet strangely melodic in my opinion, i always like to sing along) slabs of metalcore which leave a prominent message behind (the thinking man's metalcore if you like).

Japam is definitely the highlight, although the constant changes in time & rhythm in their songs make for very intense listening. This album has definitely converted me into a metalcore listener, I suggest you do the same!
