Album Review

When a metal band gets its first exposure to the world through MTV rather than the more traditional route of dismal, dues-paying touring and word of mouth, it's a band that starts with a built-in backlash. Such was the case for A Dozen Furies, who won their Ozzfest spot through an MTV battle of the bands full of reality TV humiliations that no band should have to experience — unless that band was shameless enough to sign up for such a show in the first place. So dues paying came in the form of licking up another man's loogie and as clean-up crew for Ozzfest, and then again as performers at Ozzfest, where reactions to these metalcore newbies (save guitarist Marc Serrano, who served one tour of duty with former Ozzfesters Unloco) was mixed, but ultimately positive. Which is certain to be the case with A Concept from Fire, an album that will leave metal purists nonplussed but will also find support from the same groundswell of metal and sensitive post-hardcore fans who have made names of As I Lay Dying, Shadows Fall, and Atreyu, to name just a few. Like those bands, there's a mix of thrash, melodic Euro death metal, and — more than their contemporaries — vocals that oscillate from maniac growls for the verses to soaring sweetness for the choruses. If there's any dividing line for listeners, it's likely to be the vocals. Those who can appreciate the ugly/pretty dichotomy will more than likely throw devil horns to the sky for A Concept from Fire, but those who don't will find one finger more than sufficient.

Mmhmm

Good album. It's been out for awhile now though. Make sure to check out A Concept from Fire, along with The Cycle. Both are good songs!

One of the best metal albums...

...That I have had in my collection for quite some time. Last I heard was that they broke up because they couldn't find another drummer. I wish they would release another album, because they have too too toooooo much talent and innovation to just give it all up. Reminds me of The Confession.

Amazing!!!!

This band I just found while jammin to the devil wears prada station on pandora radio, and I immediately fell in love with this band. IMO the regular singing from the singer sounds like the guy from crossfade. Anyways.. This band is awesome :)
