Mantastic

So I’ve been listening to the new album for a couple of weeks now. I have to say it took me a couple of run throughs to really get into it. I have my favorites right off the bat but there were a couple of songs that didn’t sound like what I was used to. But once I was able to sit down and really listen to it you get the dual vocals that we’ve been longing for with Devin’s return. Matt’s guitar parts are really in depth and the solo on Name Your God, oh man it’s sick. What I’ve always liked about Emery albums is the fact that I can go through the whole album start to finish without skipping songs. Excellent album guys. Love y’all.

PREORDER IT NOOOWWWW!

.....WOOOOWWWWW. I am seriously impressed by this new Emery cd. I can honestly say that I love every single song on every single CD that they make. Incredible. They have been around for 16 years now and they are getting better and better with time and practice. To say that they are old would just be stupid. Age doesn't hinder their talents - not for a second. They still have the fiery passion, energy and clever, deep lyrics that makes their music beyond great. This new album has been bringing tears to my eyes. <3 Between the heartfelt lines, clean vocals, power packed screams and original instrumentals, I am once again in love with their sound.

Also, I have met every one of these guys and interacted with them. They are just as amazing as people as they are talented musicians. They are seriously down to earth and extremely kind hearted dudes. Even if you aren't a fan of their music (blasphemy!) I would still support them 100%. I love their authenticity with their faith and how its not corny or cliche. I love how they are bold enough to figure out their faiths with their hearts on their sleeves. They ask the hard questions about life and go after what they love. They are by no means perfect and that is what makes them so amazing on many levels.

Once again, If you don't preorder "Eve" by Emery, then you are just missing out.

Great Album

Can’t stop listening to this album. I really love how catchy the songs are and can’t seem to get them out of my head. They found a way to bring some classic sound with new messages. Great job!

About Emery

Like From Autumn to Ashes, Nora, and Hopesfall, Emery combine an alternative pop/rock foundation with elements of screamo and melodic hardcore. A Christian theme also runs throughout the band's music, which often examines the contrasts between Heaven/Hell, melody/brutality, and conventional singing/guttural screaming. Formed in South Carolina in 2001, the band originally included the talents of recent college graduates Toby Morrell (vocals, guitar), Matt Carter (guitar), Joel Green (bass), Devin Shelton (guitar), Josh Head (keyboards), and Seth Studley (drums). After weighing their options, Emery's members decided that Seattle would be a better environment for a burgeoning band, prompting the group to move westward in September 2001.

Once established in the Emerald City, Emery signed with the Seattle-based Tooth & Nail label, which united them with producer/engineer Ed Rose for the creation of the band's debut album. The Weak's End appeared in January 2004, followed by The Question in August 2005. Drummer Seth Studley left before the latter album's release, however, prompting the group to enlist Dave Powell as his replacement. One year later, bassist Joel Green also left the band, although the bandmates opted to relegate bass duties to guitarists Morrell and Shelton rather than admit a new member. I'm Only a Man arrived in 2007 and signaled a new direction for the band, whose newfound use of synthesizers and increasingly melodic singing contrasted with the harsher sounds of Emery's previous work.

One year later, however, the musicians reverted to their original sound with the While Broken Hearts Prevail EP, while 2009's ...In Shallow Seas We Sail proved to be a mix of both styles. In 2011, the band parted ways with guitarist Devin Shelton, but managed to soldier on without him, releasing the heavier We Do What We Want later that year. In the late summer of 2013, they issued an eponymous recording on their own BadChristian music label. You Were Never Alone, the group's sixth studio album and second outing for BadChristian, arrived in 2015, followed by the crowdfunded Revival: Emery Classics Reimagined in 2017. ~ Alex Henderson
