Product Description

Product Description

London-Sire Records would like to introduce 40 Below Summer by giving you an Invitation To The Dance, their debut album produced by the legendary GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Kittie). The foundation of 40 Below Summer's music can be heard in the tight, percussive drive of their rhythm section. The aggressive, yet melodic, guitar work proves forceful in its innovation and true to its roots. Powerful vocals and a strong songwriting sensibility make 40 Below Summer's Invitation To The Dance a truly memorable work of art. Songs like "Rope" and "Wither Away" effortlessly take the listener to new dimensions in hard rock. "We The People" and "Sideshow" speak to you as much as they attack your senses. Creating songs with a lasting, "real" and unparalleled emotional intensity is the signature of 40 Below Summer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Invite me to the Dance Dec 31 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There are really no words to tell you how much I love this album. When you first pick it up you expect the music to be too much, almost like a hardcore band, but that's not the case. I'm not sure how to explain it. I like loud music, but not to much of it all at once, and this album satisfy's that. "Falling Down" is the perfect example of what 40 Below is really all about. It's loud, but than gets mellow and then loud again. I can't compare it to any other band, because they don't sound like any other band I've heard. They are their own sound. Just check it out, garateed that it won't disappoint you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing debut. Dec 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have to say that this is without a doubt, one of my favorite cds. 40 Below Summer is an amazing band on so many different levels. their musical style is similar to few. try to picture a sound with a mix of old school (hed)p.e. and mudvayne. their drummer has extreme talent. he can keep time very well.
what's great about the cd is the style changes so much and the patterns in the songs change so much; it's frantic...yet, seemingly well organized. the guitar players thrive off each other, you can tell by their in-your-face guitar riffs that just go back and forth from player to player. they feed off each other and it works. their vocalist is also insanely talented. i think he holds back a little with his melody, but he has a great voice. whether he's singing, screaming, or flowing...it sounds good.
1. We the People: good opener. good live song. "we the people must jump" it's an in-your-face nu-metal anthem that Slipknot fans everywhere should love.
2. Rope: great song. the lyrics are quite depressing, but the song is great. their are some bad attempts at voice alters in this song...it's actually the only semi-weak song on the cd and it's not even that bad really, just when the voice alterings come in at the very end.
3. Still Life: this is a cool song. these guys have this cool sound that rap-rock SHOULD sound like. he's rapping, but he's screaming while doing it; so it sounds tough.
4. Wither Away: this song, i always thought, should've been a single. it's catchy. it's not as heavy as the other songs, so it leaves a lot open. this is the most radio-friendly song on the cd, this or "we the people."
5. Step into the Sideshow: this song is intense. live, it's insane. it has a punishing double-bass, anthem feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album Nov. 19 2003
By Kankui
Format:Audio CD
I was getting gas, and who did I see come out of a camper? these guys, they looked hardcore so i started chatting up with them, and i find out they are 40 below summer, so i went home, looked em up, went out and bought the cd.. most amazing things ever on that cd.. sometimes it sounds like Mudvayne, but of course thats a great thing! If the guys from 40bs are reading this.. just remember Elkhart,IN and the gas station...

4.0 out of 5 stars definitely not bad Sept. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
These guys are pretty bad@ss. The vocalist has a pretty tight voice reminiscent of old school deftones stuff. There is an amazing variety of styles on this cd to soft almost ballad type stuff (such as wither away) to harsh screaming all out frontal assaults (such as welcome to the sideshow, which is the best song on this cd). Some of the songs on here are a bit sub-par, but all in all this is worth it. And, since no one has heard of these guys, it's cheap, so it's even MORE worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars give it more than one listen Aug. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
this is one of those cds that takes awhile to get into.but once you start grooving, you wont be able to stop.this cd is jam packed with heavy riffs, and the amalgum of acoustic guitars and heavy vocals keep me entertained.the album tends to become a let down after the first 6 or 7 songs,but its still a pretty darn good cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing! July 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
I must admit I've only liked a few numetal songs such as Wait and Bleed and Not Falling but I heard about 40BS from a buddy of mine and they're simply amazing. One dissapointment however, is the fact that Invitation to the Dance doesn't include some of their best songs. Anyone who bought this CD and likes it, go grab "Letters to God" and "Faces". You'll love it!
