Album Review

So crowded is the melodic metalcore scene of the mid-2000s, and therefore so interchangeable many of its acts, that Life in Your Way's release of a sophomore album is already something the Connecticut quintet should be proud of. But there's naturally quite a bit more on 2005's Ignite and Rebuild that's worth crowing about, not least of which the imaginative ways in which the band reshuffle what are essentially beat-to-death genre songwriting devices to come up with instantly memorable material. "Light in Mine," for instance, contrasts what could be primal scream therapy (furiously repeating "You leave me speechless!") with an upbeat melodic guitar coda worthy of power pop; "More Than Efforts" snaps out of its aggressive advance for a gentle child's lullaby midway through; and "Evident" simply makes utmost use of dynamic slower riffing. Of course the band's inexorable drive can largely be traced back to their devout Christian faith, which they continually address here through lyrics both literal (outright prayers such as "Threads of Sincerity" and "When Rules Change") and more tangential (the apocalypse-referencing "This, the Midnight Fight," the simple call to action of "The Change"). But for those who aren't religiously inclined, it should be noted that these qualities rarely get in the way of the album's value as entertainment for entertainment's sake; and though it barely advances the melodic metalcore blueprint, Ignite and Rebuild offers an enjoyable and immediate example of the genre.

Customer Reviews

Broken up!

Man am I mad at these guys! Being a HUGE fan of this genre, I tend to pick the bands most intriguing to me. I stumbled across this cd and waking giants. It took one spin of the cd before I realized that this band is something special...I mean really special! So I googled the band (having never heard of them before), and was HUGELY dissappointed to find that they have broken up. Why is it that the REALLY good bands break up? The bands that make the music that makes you feel good, ALWAYS break up? If any member of Life in your way reads this...I am really PI$$ED off at you! Please reconsider...please don't don't understand what your music does for helps in more ways than you will ever know. Please re-consider...just ONE more album guys, I know you have it in you. How can you dis-band something so special? How can you do that to the fans, the kids, the people that support you? One question...WHY? Incidentally if you have never heard of this need to buy their collected works! They have disbanded, and you will never hear music this special again. Heart broken for Life in your way :-( P.S if you think that only kids listen to your music...think again...I am a 42 year old teenager! Rick Reulecke Colorado Springs, CO

Great Christian Album for anyone <><

These guys are great. My favorite song is Threads Of Sincerity. It is on the new album Waking Giants as well. All songs 5 stars

The definition of Melodic Hardcore.

These guys are amazing, Waking Giants, is maybe a little bit better than this album, but thats taking something that is 10/10 and it bursting through to a 11/10. These guys mix heavy guitar riffs, with melodic guitar riffs, and blend it all together with beautiful slow breaks in the songs with amazing singing. The screamer is amazing, his higher pitched scream could not be perfected more. The group singing is beautiful and almost all of their songs are very powerful and you can feel the emotion in his voice. BUY THIS ALBUM, BUY ALL OF THEM.


Formed: 1999 in Manchester, CT

Years Active: '00s

Manchester, CT's Life in Your Way was first formed in 1999, but underwent numerous personnel changes while refining their post-emo metalcore songwriting style over the ensuing three years.

Both channeled the genre's usual bevy of hard/soft musical tricks through the...
