Customer Reviews

Their Best Album Yet IMO (got an advanced copy at Warped Tour.)

It's been nearly a decade since Hawthorne Heights stormed on to the scene with The Silence in Black and White in 2004, and since then they have played sold out arena shows to small clubs, lost a band member and best friend, and (counting EPs) have released seven albums on 4 record labels. Zero is the first full-length album by the band since 2010's Skeletons, and first to be released on a label after self-releasing some of their best work on the EPs Hate (2011) and Hope (2012). After the tragic death of guitarist and unclean vocalist Casey Calvert, the band underwent somewhat of a sound-change, straying from the more hardcore elements found on their debut and falling into a more pop-oriented rock sound on Fragile Future and Skeletons to the dismay of many older fans. After listening to Zero though, it should be very clear that the change of sound on those albums wasn't something forced to try to sell more records but merely an attempt to grow and on Zero theyve finally grown into what they probably envisioned for those album, but without the awkwardness and flaws that accompanied some of the songs on them. The songs themselves are very diverse on the album; Spark is possibly the happiest song theyve ever written, Golden Parachutes is one of the most pop-oriented rock songs theyve done too, while Hollow Hearts Unite is mostly accoustic and touching, Anywhere But Here is very pop-punk and was actually written before Casey's death but was cut from Fragile Future, and Taken By The Dark sounds more like a homage to their roots and even has a full verse of guitarist Micah Carli screaming in the breakdown (Micah learned how to scream and took over the unclean vocals after Casey's passing, and he sounds better then ever on Taken By The Dark.) Some may be dissapointed in the relative lack of screams compared to what was done on Silence and Hate, but when you take out the comparisons to their older work and listen to it for what it is, it shines very brightly. JT's voice is better then ever, the songs are full of life and inspiration, the lyrics are sharp, and the songs are executed nearly flawlessly with no filler and they will get lodged in your head for long time. If you're and old fan, i reccomend it to you as long as you are open to some new ideas sound-wise (and if you just want the hardcore elements of Silence, I strongly reccomend Hate to you), but more importantly this is the album I would reccomend to somebody whose never heard a Hawthorne Heights album before, because i firmly believe it's their strongest.

Love the album!

I bought the pre-order off Hawthorne's Height's website and the cd arrived today. The album is simply fantastic. I swear HH couldn't get any better but i think they have. Or maybe they've just matured…without becoming a completely different band. My favorite tracks are "Spark" and "Golden Parachutes." But every song is worth a spot on your iTunes playlist or better yet, buy the album from your local record store!!!


That is all!

Composed of drummer Eron Bucciarelli, bassist Matt Ridenour, vocalist/guitar player J.T.
