MUSIC: EnvyPosted: January 31, 2011
Envy – Recitation
Envy is a band that could easily fit under both post-rock and hardcore . Having been around since 1992 Envy have had plenty of time to build on their sound and in their latest album Recitation I feel they have found the perfect mix. The combination of ambient slow guitar and spoken word to change of harsh distorted guitars and screaming vocals keeps me captivated and although I barely understand a word they are saying, due to the fact they speak Japanese, you can feel the emotion that Tetsuya Fukagawa is putting into each and every song.
Below is a video of one of my favourites from Recitation, ‘Worn Heels and the Hands We Hold’
