Album Review

Is it hardcore or is it death metal? No, this isn't some warped play on the famous Memorex ad slogan, but rather a very valid question after listening to Emmure's debut album, 2007's Goodbye to the Gallows. Like many modern-day metal bands, Emmure vocalist Frank Palmeri can shapeshift his voice to resemble a death metal growler, a hardcore barker, and also a melodic metal singer. And the players are equally adept at pulling off all the tricky time signatures and start-stop-start bits that abound throughout the album. Such tracks as the album-opener "A Ticket to the Paralyzer," as well as "When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong" are both good examples of Emmure's brutal and unpredictable sound and approach. Certainly not easy to digest music, by any means.

Customer Reviews


After their first release, there wasn't much expected of Emmure. This album absolutely caught me by surprise. The band throws a little more melody into the mix, making the songs slightly more pleasing to the ears. But that doesn't mean they've lost their weight. Quite the opposite, in fact. This album is very heavy. The subject material too, seems much closer to Frankie Palmeri, and you can definitely hear it in his vocals. One part that completely caught me off guard was singing. Yes, only in one song, but it puts the entire album on a higher shelf because of it. This should definitely be purchased.


Awesome combination of killer riffs and melodies. Probably my favorite Emmure record

Hands Down!!

New Fairfield, Connecticut-based metal quintet Emmure specialize in an emotionally brutal blend of blistering hardcore and punishing thrash that has drawn favorable comparisons to acts like the Acacia Strain and From a Second Story Window. The group, consisting of singer Frank Palmeri, drummer Joe Lionetti, guitar players Ben Lionetti and Jesse Ketive, and bassist Mark Davis, released its debut, Goodbye to the Gallows, on Victory Records in 2007. By the next spring, Emmure followed up with The Respect...
