The members of Explosions in the Sky may just be four soft-spoken guys from Texas, but on Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever they simply tear everything apart. Combining influences from classic rock to metal to goth, the band creates instrumental soundscapes that can turn from all-out destruction to heartfelt, dreamy melodies in the blink of an eye. The result is similar to Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor! — a musical journey that leads listeners through the entire range of emotion without even needing words. "Greet Death" matches a crunchy Dinosaur Jr. hook with warm Cure-esque bass grooves. "Moon Down" chimes and twists through ten minutes of calm night, leaving the listener with the feeling that something awesome is sure to happen. On "Have You Passed Through This Night?" a film-dialogue sample ponders in a near-whispering Texas drawl the meaning of the world. What follows is like the climax of a tense, mind-blowing movie, driven by relentless guitars and a thundering Master of Puppets-era Metallica drum march. "Poor Man's Memory" follows, offering some consolation in a sentimental melody. The album ends with the grand, 12-minute-long "With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept," a song that moves from Sonic Youth to Joy Division to Explosions in the Sky. Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever is nothing short of awe-inspiring and one of the best records of 2001.
if love could be expressed by men
i found a lot of comfort in this album when i went to war. sometimes music is more than music. yasim in the sky takes me back to childhood when horror didn't exist. best band ever thanks for comfort
on the subject of films, explosions in the sky soundtracked the friday night lights movie ...
this album is one of my all-time favorites for any band/genre. that's high praise coming from someone who really loves music.
the song "moon is down," to me, pretty much defines "post rock" as a genre. postmodern, stripped down, easy chords rock. friggin awesome album
Powerful music, strange coincidence
Released on September 4th 2001, one week before the terrorist attacks in New York, this album is one of the strangest coincidences in musical history. The album also contains the track entitled "This Plane Will Crash Tomorrow." This song was removed after the attachs, but can still be found online. This is incredible music.
This band writed some of the most moving music ever written. It made me cry the first time I heard it. This is music you listen to at night, by your self, in your bed. It changed my life.
Formed: 1999 in Austin, TX
