Customer Reviews

Creepy and Brutal

First off this is their heaviest album to date, basicaly devoid of clean singing. So if you like Greeley for there clean vocals your out of luck. If you love machine gun double kick, breakdowns, relentless raw screams and Guest vox from the Irish Front, Craig Mabbit and Blessthefall 2.0 then your in luck. The biggest draw for me on greeley's last album and this one is definately the creepy atmospheric sound and its layerd on thick for NRNR.

unstoppable

Greeley Estates latest offering "No Rain No Rainbow" is their first release on their new label Tragic Hero, and it is also their heaviest album to date. Starting out as a mostly melodic screamo band from Phoenix, Greeley has progressed through many members and tours to become the post hardcore giants we hear on this record. while their oldest CD's and even some of their last release "Go West Young Man, Let the Evil Go East" feature melodic guitar riffs and slow build-ups with clean vocals, 99% of NRNR stays on the brutal, fast, and ripping sound they have moved on to.
Frontman Ryan Zimmerman's vocals are recognizable to anyone who has heard the band almost immediately, however he has dropped almost any hint of clean vocals, so almost half his sound is missing. however, his screams are better than ever, and he hits probably the most high pitched scream you will ever hear almost effortlessly. his vocals fit the new sound very well, adding to the energetic chaos that this album pounds out all the way through. despite the incredibly high energy of the instruments, his vocals still add to the intensity. this CD also features a large amount of guest vocals, featuring Beau Bokan, Jared Warth, Craig Mabbitt, and Cameron Martin.
The guitar work on NRNR really stands out to separate this album from their past efforts. Brandon Hackenson and Alex Torres deliver blistering riffs, which while not always technical, drive the music forward and flesh out their new sound perfectly. they also throw in a healthy amount of breakdowns, almost always at the perfect moments. Several of these, especially in "Wolves make great actors" really shine as true gems in a genre where you can almost cut and paste breakdowns from one song into another. These guitarists know how to set a mood, and one of the most beautiful things about this album is how the chord progressions and notes they use in their riffs set the hectic and dark tone that Ryan will then lay over with his desperate and gut-wrenching screams. The bassist David Ludlow, while not standing out at any particular moment, follows up the guitar very well, which, considering the speed of this album, is impressive in itself.
One of the speculated reasons as to Greeley's completely new sound is their new drummer, Chris Julian. Chris has shown us all through this record that he can deliver the speed, intensity, and accuracy to drive a powerhouse like NRNR. not only that, but it all flows seemingly effortlessly, and their are definitely fills that surprised me and stood out from the bands around Greeley. Also this album features some tempo changes and time changes that make for great listening and show off the talent of this band.
Each song on this album is well thought out, all of them feature choruses or at least parts that repeat at some point. Also, every single song flows very well, transitions and time changes placed lovingly with almost god-like precision.
Overall this album is excellent at what it does. pounding on without stop (except for the short interlude track "4,5,6") this album is definitely united in one mission. the downside to this is that if you want variety (beyond variety within this specific sound) you probably won't find it. Also, the lack of clean vocals by Ryan is a bit of a disappointment to Greeley fans, as his clean vocals were very distinct and well done. So if you are looking for something varied and very out of the box this album might not be for you. but if you are looking for an atmospheric, powerful, and top-notch post hardcore CD, this is what you have been waiting for. NRNR exemplifies the highest quality of this genre, in every area.

No Rain, No Rainbow

This is by far one of their sickest CDs
