Envy is a japan band active since 1996, after a few years they released this record containing a unique blend of harsh and raw screamo with softer post-rock/post-hardcore instrumental parts. This is one of my favorite record, because what Envy can create is a marvelous flows of emotive and dark atmospheres. With long slow buildups, crafted by ethereal guitars, you are carried till a violent explosion with pummeling drums and a scratching voice. In late releases they drifted into a more post-rock songwriting, yet, with all the experience made, watching them live is a rare beautiful show, and a few songs of this record can’t be missed live.
