Album Review

Lifted by years of effort and a new distribution deal with Epic Records, Trustkill Records' Eighteen Visions broke onto the charts with 2004's Obsession, which set up the band's next release as a potential breakthrough. When a recording artist with a number of albums decides to name a new disc after itself, that's often a signal of an attempt at reinvention or introduction to a new audience, and such seems to be the case with Eighteen Visions. The album is not a break with the past, but it does mark a more complete realization of the band's goal of maintaining a distinct heavy metal/hardcore identity while suggesting it can master other styles as well. The most distinct example of this versatility comes six tracks in with "Broken Hearted," a song on which Eighteen Visions abruptly switches gears and produces a melodic, midtempo arena rock performance. Lead singer James Hart calms down from his usual harsh howl to a conventional rock vocal style, and the band turns in a surprisingly accessible track, complete with a big, hooky chorus. The first time listening to the album, "Broken Hearted" comes as a surprise, but upon repeated listenings it's possible to hear more sophisticated parts in other songs — unusually strong vocal choruses, keyboard riffs, unusual tempo shifts. Eighteen Visions can play contemporary metal with the best of them, turning out songs filled with pile-driving drum parts, thundering guitars, and Hart's obscenity laced, rage-filled screaming. But, unlike their many competitors, they are more than that, and they vary the formula just enough to emerge from the pack.

Customer Reviews

awesome album

i really liked old Eighteen Visions when they were a metal band, and i kinda enjoyed Obsession, but this cd is like old 18V mixed with Obsession, and its awesome...keep it up. And for the record i bought the actual CD cuz iTunes at the time didnt have the whole cd.

too soft

try being heavier and you would be a damn good band. too bad, what a waste.

You WONT be "Broken Hearted"!!!! 5 STARS!!!

This album is actually epic for an arena rock album. Broken Hearted is one of the best modern day ballads I've heard EVER!! So much energy and emotion was put into this album and the proof is in the writing and the beautifully sounding background instruments. One of only few albums that I own that actually allows you to listen every song on the album without skipping. Masterpiece.


Formed: 1996 in Orange County, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Eighteen Visions' complex, often off-time, blasting metallic hardcore transforms bits of thrash, stomp, and acidic blackness into cohesive, pummeling compositions that occasionally break down and groove. All of their songs contain singalong-worthy bellowing from charismatic singer James Hart, who performed live with tongue-in-cheek pomposity worthy of huge stadiums. The band's flashy image, presence, and flair set them apart from the rest of the metalcore pack, ensuring that the scene stayed vital...
