Album Review

Classic Case is one of the more successful examples of a recently emerged type: the band that arises from the scrappy emo-metal-hardcore scene with a genuine ability to forge hooks out of metal, and to harmonize. Combine that skill with powerful but nimble vocals and a killer guitar sound, and you have the makings of a great post-indie rock band. Add a producer who also plays guitar for Helmet, and you've got the final ingredient for a great album. Losing at Life isn't exactly all hits and no misses — several songs sprawl in an unwieldy way, and singer Jared Draughon needs to grow beyond the lyrically lazy hardcore habit of referring to an undefined "this" in his songs ("Distract everyone and they won't get to the bottom of this," etc.). But the blend of strings and molten riffage on "Fatal Phrase" is handled beautifully, as is the combination of two-fisted guitar and soaring, atmospheric vocals on "Into a Nightmare." Classic Case also boasts the unusual ability to wield complex time signatures without sounding like show-offs (check out the impressive "Scott Free") and to blast off into full-on heavy metal territory without sounding stupid ("Devil's Advocate"). There's plenty right with this album, and nothing wrong that time and experience won't cure. Recommended.

Great Cd!

this is an awesome cd for a band that is not very popular. they have very catchy tunes and are very telented. this cd has awesome guitars. If you like Saosin,Circa Survive,rise against, and 30 seconds to mars, then this is defintely a band that you will love. the best song on the record in Into a nightmare which is an awesome song to start of the album, but dont worry, this cd isnt one of those where the good songs are first and the crappy songs are last. this cd is good all the way through. i give them praise for this cd.


This is an awesome cd. When i first bought it i LOVED a couple of the songs, but now, i listen to the whole cd WITHOUT skipping a song, they are all great! This cd was done very well and i hope you consider this cd a buy, these guys ROCK! spread the word about this band. no doubt 5 stars.

Formed: 2002 in Chapel Hill, NC

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Former bandmates Jared Draughon (vocals/guitar) and Mitchell Marlow (guitar) hooked up for a casual jam session in their hometown of Chapel Hill, NC, in early 2002. They quickly decided the time was right to start a band up together again, thus birthing Classic Case. Marlow, who was then living in Brooklyn, ultimately persuaded Draughon to relocate to New York when getting a permanent crew together in North Carolina proved to be difficult. There the duo began jamming with drummer Stephan Linde (Sons...
