Album Review

Finding an apt home with Equal Vision Records, Pennsylvania's This Day Forward may have also found its calling with this focused third release. (A tour with Thursday didn't hurt.) Piecing together the aggression of hardcore, the passion of emocore, and the floggin' of metal, In Response crashes down with dogged rhythms, muscular guitars, and sincere screaming. But TDF isn't afraid to unveil a lax side either, with melodic breakdowns on "One and One" and the calm instrumental "Seven." Most of the time though, vocalist Mike Shaw wails like a sensitive Henry Rollins, with new guitarists Brendan Ekstrom and Vadim Taver supplying a solid charge of powerful riffs. Backwards tracks on "Euphio Question" offer some earnest experimentation that the band pulls off succinctly. The intense shout-along "Nouveau" and "The Breath" are some of the many jawbreaking moments on In Response, which will surely be a crowd-pleaser.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

This US metalcore band was formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1997 by Mike Shaw (vocals), his brother Gary Shaw (bass), Randy Wehrs (guitar), Mike Golen (guitar), and Colin Frangicetto (drums). Building up a grassroots following in their native Pennsylvania, the band issued Fragments Of An Untold Story Born By Shunning The Opportunity in 1999. The album’s mixture of metalcore and screamo styles was raw and unsophisticated, but packed an undeniable punch. A move to the larger Eulogy Recordings...
