Review: A Skylit Drive – Wires and the Concept of Breathing [2008]

amazon-a-skylit-driveLodi, CA sextet A Skylit Drive champion the screamo dynamic on their 13-track release WIRES AND THE CONCEPT OF BREATHING. While at times the disc treads the dreaded paint by numbers waters, there’s some decent riffing and strong song structures beyond the surface of the uber-nascent Coheed-esque vocals and played to death breakdowns (“Eris and Dysnomia,” “Knights of the Round”) allowing this squad a chance to stand out somewhat in the vast sea of bands with bad haircuts wearing their girlfriend’s jeans. www.tragicherorecords.comMike SOS
