4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good June 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
haste the day is a awsome band, and this is a pretty good album. yes, pretty good, not awsome, great, or amazing, but pretty good.
i know this band has talent and could have made this better than it is
I have about 3 complaints about this cd but thats it
First, the guys scream is the same pitch in every single song, except for substance. it rarley goes from a medium. sometimes a medium to medium-low, but i really would have liked more vocal range in this guy which would have added to the songs.
Second, many of the songs start to get u pumped and into the song, only to quickly quiet down and throw in some emo gutiar and some singing for alot of the song. this isnt necessarily a bad thing, but its done on to many of the songs. incorporate singing and screaming would be nice, like in substance and closest thing to closer
Third, like others have said, they rehash old formulas and do what others have done before. but if it sounds good, who cares? that is a small complaint.
Anyways, i eagerly await their next realse since it will probly be better. since i gave this cd 4 stars and yet complained alot, that dosnt mean i dont like it, i DO like it, but it could have been much better. buy it and you judge it, u mostly likely will enjoy it

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Balance April 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
You know a metalcore album is good when you feel your heart beating in time with the breakdown.
And you know a good melody when you're singing along even though you don't know the words yet.
"Burning Bridges" by Haste the Day did both of those to me, all within the same song. It's that duality of intense metalcore and heartbreaking lyricism that makes this my favorite hardcore CD.
The majority of the album is fast, ferocious metalcore. They have the best recorded guitars I've heard on any standard audio CD. Their breakdowns are grabbing enough to cause a traffic accident. And their lead vocalist (four of them sing) has a throaty scream reminiscient of As I Lay Dying. It's enough to make any hardcore kid punch the floor in joy.
Yet Haste the Day doesn't limit itself to screaming and breakdowns. One of their other members sings soaring melodic
lines with the most wrenching voice. He has a resonance similar to Creed and Kutless without any of the accompanying nasality.
When you combine the searing hardcore and unabashed lyricism Haste the Day offers, the result is usually a jaw hitting the floor.
Of course, "Burning Bridges" is by no means a perfect album. Their lead vocalist doesn't have much variety in his screaming --it rarely fluctuates from a middle range. An occasional guitar dissonance or two along the lines of Norma Jean or Symphony in Peril would sharpen their songs' impact considerably. And most noticeable of the album's shortcomings is the abrupt transition in "American Love" into a lengthy clean guitar/voice duet that seems out of place.
However, for fans of hard music, this CD is a must-have. "Burning Bridges" will scorch your CD player, ears and heartstrings to a blissfully contented crisp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haste The Day!!! April 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
I just saw Haste The Day LIVE on the SolidState Tour 2004 in Michigan a couple nights ago (along with Dead Poetic, Beloved, Underoath, and Norma Jean)! They came up first; and although I didn't know a lot of the words or many of their tunes going in, I was absolutely blown away at just how good these guys are. not only musically, but ministerially as well. They were the only group of the 5 that made an open proclamation for Jesus Christ to the audience that night (though Norma Jean did have images of the crucifixion playing on the background screen while they performed). Upon getting home that night and listening to their independant EP (which thankfully they still had copies of on the tour) "That They May Know You" and "Burning Bridges"; I cannot express just how excited I am to listen to these guys' music and to have seen them live; and how on edge I am for them to put out another record (though BB was released just a coup[e months ago, if that!). These guys remind me of a Zao (more recent stuff) meets Living Sacrifice meets Project 86 combo!
I feel very blessed to have their material on my shelf! Stay safe on the tour, boys; and make another record soon so I don't have to replace my speakers from constantly cranking BB (I want to ruin them on some newer work:)!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intoxicating Monster March 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
The best place to begin is with WHJE, the best radio station in Indianapolis. Basically, it is a commercial-free high school radio station with the most earnest yet least polished DJ's you'll hear anywhere. I don't know how involved they are with programming the format, but it's is incredible. I hear bands on here I'll never hear anywhere else, like Queensryche, Dream Theater, and lately a steady stream of late-stage emo and what I call monster voice music. Then they'll toss in some old Pat Benatar or CCR. It's hard to believe the students know the old stuff, but they sound sincere.
Anyway, if you're not part of Haste the Day's scene, or a current/former Carmel High School student, WHJE's the most likely place you'll hear Haste. I can't believe they were seniors a year ago. I've never been able to stomach most monster voice music, but I'm a metalhead of the old school variety and that style's one of the only ones where you'll still hear wrenching guitar solos and intense heaviness. Haste has maintained incredible stylistic integrity while still forging listenable "screamo". Their musicianship is unquestionable, even whilst acknowledging their age and geographic roots.
The core tracks from their EP include Substance and Autumn. The former is a flawless metal track that is simply amazing. I beg you to find the original recording of Substance, rather than this album's re-recording (try their website). It has changed me forever. It makes me want to smash my face against a brick wall, stage dive off my patio, mosh, flail, writhe, scream, and twist my face into a tight teeth/gums/gullet smile simultaneously. I can't describe it musically in a way that gives it justice -- heavy, passionate, blistering, melodic.

This is really good thrashy hardcore metal, ala a combo of norma Jean, ZZZZZZao and Dead Poetic. Plus the cover art is cool. Scream along.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff if you like Thrice!
Anyone that says this band doesn't sound like Thrice obviously doesn't know anything. The music sounds exactly like them, maybe not the screaming (which is more like Zao). Read more
